The Ei quirer on Scatter Hunter'* Letter.
Wo express* I the apprehension, on Saturday, that
Senator Hunter * letter would probably take the starch
out of enr neighbor of the Enquirer, and ir.dncc it to
knock under th Win, to the extent of being willing to
koo him re elected to the Scant* without further op
position. But our fears misled us; and we have
this morning to beg pardon of the Enquirer for sus
pecting It of a purpose an foreign to tbe chivalrous
and courageous spirit which it diaplays in its Satur
day's issue. Instead of n treating from the portion
it has all along assumed in regard to the Senator, It
manifests a manly aad incorrigible determination to
make him disavow all sympathy or eencurreooe with
tha views of the malcontents of its party in reference
to Walker'* policy, or to use all its Influence and
energies to procure his expulsion from the Senate.
Under the masterly advice and management of our
much lured friend aad neighbor, the Governor, the
Enquirer baa furnished new and signal proof of its
independence and spirit, and thus entitled itself to
s still greater degree of private and public admira
tion. Notwithstanding what wa said on Saturday
in regard to tha probable course of the Enquirer cn
the subject of Hunter'* latter, we some how or
other did feel satisfied, all the time, that the suspi
cion and prediotion in thi* matter were doing the
Enquirer gross injustice. But many Whigs and all
the friends of Hunter, whom w# happened to meet
just after the appearance of the Senator's letter, were
ready to-wagerany amount that the Enquirer would
take oo aiicn to express itself satisfied with the
Senator's position, and withdraw its oppnsit'on tu
his re-election. It was under the influence, in a
measure, ol these swaggering vaticinations that we
were deceived when wc gave utterance to our unjust
and unworthy apprehension. During the whole
lime, however, as we have already remarked, there
distinguished end unconquerable Gubernatorial friend
would be equal to the occasion—would come out,
right side up, and woul 1 still continue to wrestle
with the cunning and wary S.-nator, in spite of the
combined powers of the upper *nd the nether world.
We thought we knew.il mortal man could ever
know, of what glorious and indomitable stuff our
neighbor waa made, ami we thirefore felt moved by
something like divine inspiration to cry out, at the
top of our voice—all hail to the man (that is, to the
Governor) who never yet was vanquished and who
has always succeeded in scattering his enemies, like
chaff before the trim!. We have often confessed to
the world a strong and overpowering sentiment of
attachment and admiration towards him of “Only,
near Onancock.” but never before tiid our bosom
swell with such large and magnificent emotions of
the sweet and tender kind. We really love our
neighbor—a thing are have long suspected, but never
until now, clearly revealed to us. We feel an irre
rislibW impulse to rusk up to kis mansion, and em
brace him “with Ike rigid Hand and q|th tlio left."
He has proven himself a man and a hern, and has
thus illustrated the ctlieary ol our watchful guardian
ship and confidential instructions, and confirmed the
highest and brightcat hopes which even tee, in the
height of our partiality and affection, ever entertain
ed of him. We now present him to the world, in all
his august ami sublime proportions, as the model ol
a man, a statesman and a hero—the marvelous, bnt
legitimate, fruit of our own labors and toils for the
last three years! Having thus finished our woik,
we pronounce it “good," and henceforth recline a'
ease upon our laure'g, deafened by tbs uproarious
applause of the universe, and surrounded by a per
fect Male of glory.
But to the Enquirer'» comments on Senator Hun
ter’s letter, which will be found in full in another
part of to-day’s paper. It cannot be doubted that
our neighbor makes out a strong case against the
Senator, and very effectually demolishes hi* pre
tensions to the support of the friends of the Admin
istration for re-election. II the Enquirer nflects
the sentiments and describes the position of the Ad
ministration upon the Kansas policy of Governor
Walker, it is simply impossible for it not to oppose
his elevation to the Senate—tor the ground assumed
by itself in relation thereto and the ground taken
by the Senator in bis letter are directly opposite and
contradictory. The Enquirer endorses and sustains
Walker's policy throughout; while the Senator lua
no hesitation in saying that he “disapproves” it, as
in palpable violation of the Kansas-Nebraska act.
Thu», the two must either stand apart and make
war upon each other, or one or the other must sur
render his own opinions, and principles, and con vie
(ions of public duty, and solely upon the altar ol
party expediency—for the paltry purpose of prevent
ing division in the Democratic ranks. But this lat
ter, it iaevident, neither will do: and the conse
queue* will be, that the Senator will have formida
ble and organized opposition to hia re-election to
the Senate. The Enquirer puts the Senator in an
ralremrly awkward and unpleasant dilemma.—
It maintains that “Governor Walker’s expression ol
opinion as to the unfavorable adaptation of the
Tiriitory to the introduction of slavery” originated
it.crely in “a desire to t-uppress unjawful < (forts on the
part of the anti slavery party, by persuading them
of the nseleasne** of sdeh whereas Senator
Hunter directly charges that Gov. Walker openly vi |
•dated the principle of the Kansas Nebraska sol, by
‘‘attempting to influence (unjustifiably and wrong
full; ) thu tlociMon of the ptx.pkj of that Territory,
iijioii the question of slavery.” The Enquirer then
proceeds, and in its interrogatories will be found some
bard nuts for the Senator to crack— “If t.ior. Wal
ker's expression of opinion was not a mere attempt
to suppress unlawful action, but an attempt to influ
ence the decision of the people, then Oov. Walker
• imuiitted a gross impropriety, trhirh the 1‘reeidtnt
nnt rhnten to relate hy de/irietny the nvbordi.
Vote uf hie rommueioo. Such being Mr. Hunter's
••pinion, doe* he propoae to hoid the President ac
countable for thus countenancing Oov, Walker's con

ilKiiently grave to demand the rejection nf his
nomination when hia name shall be presented to the
Mcnate, and yet too unimportant to render his reten
tion in ntflce a matter of complaint against the Pres
•l-ntl Or does the Senator propoae to sustain the
>urs« of the President, by voting to ratify () ,y,
Walker's nomination! Which of the three court**
does the Senator propoae to adopt 1"
It mil be seen that these interrogatories of the
Enquirer are all Important, and all of a atrietly
p *-ii.1*1 character. It is absurd for the Senator to
•Ipdct to overlook or to dodge them, ir he expects to
acqn re the support of the real friends ol the Admin
istration lor re-election. He should theref oe forth
with writ* a supplementary letter, in full and deei<
•l -l response to these grave and vital quertiena. J|e
s'loitlJ sty, in cispliatie terms, whether he intends
I • vote fur the ratification or rejection of the norni
mtinn of Walker as <i ivcrnur of Kansas. !• seems
Is almost impt'.suhU to supp »sc that the g.matoi
rouM vote to rstWy Walker’s n*.m nati.m, irh. n hr
l- l eves that Walker has outrageously riola'e<l lh«

would or would not sustain die President hy votirf
fw • aguinat Walker's laiittcation. And tbia omit
■ in, in the language of the /Tafi/rtr, atill leaves
him “in a non committal position.”
thciefore renew our auggv-tioa that the Sena
tor should prompt'r favn ■ the public with a supple
tn.mtary letter, containing a f ill and satisfactory ex
pokition of hia views on all those grave practical
point* adverted to by the Anyuirvr. We repeat that
Mr. Hunter, however disagreeable and humiliating it
may be, must again speak out—or he must retire
from the Senate, and take to the cultivation of cab
bages and onions.
Kansas Election.
The Allowing sweeping denunciation ol the “nation
al Democracy'' of Kansas is from the Lynchburg
Ke/iublifan^ a warm and uncotnpromisiug Demo
cratic journal:
“The election in K*nra» lor State (.(fieri*, and for a
member of Congress, has resulted in a Black Kepubliraii
victory. Paaaorr hat hesten Raseou, the Democratic c*n
didate, hr some thousand or two vetea. It I* said t at the

slavery qmaion.
“Tim WaUtxa jonrnala hare nothing to my upon this
vutject, and we do not blame them. For ouraelve*. we are
gratified at th» defeat of what ia railed the “national de
moca-i in Kansas. It is a debauched set—made up in
moat part ul poliiical and personal rascals and knave*. R.s

Cuild dm ire no one. It was the reau't ol a b*-e betray
al of the eiuaeol I bo Souih in Kansas, and ita authors
bare gotten the just reward ol tliair treachery. We have
an otter and inexpressible con tempt for such a D.mocra
cy, and can .ol eoneral It-"
The foregoing ia ait open anil frank admission of
what Whig papers and poli'.iciaM have invariably
asserted, namely—that tha national Democracy In
Kansas are utterly rotten on the subject of Southern
rights and Southern institutions. In the severe and
raunlic language ol our Democratic contemporary at
Lynchburg, “it is a debauched set—made up in most
part of political and personal rascals and knavok!”—
L ku our contemporary, too, “we have an utter and
•"* vpressible contempt for such a Democracy, and
cannot conceal it.”
But wherein is the difference between the nation
al Democracy of Kansas and the national Democra
cy of all the Northern Slates V Are not “both” as
the /ftpuilumm expresses it, “Black Hepublicans in
principle, if not in name and profession*” Su:h
undoubtedly is the (act. Wo have abundant evi
dence in proof of it, which no ingenuity can make
wry with, and which no candid man would eren at
tempt to dispute. In the late olection in Ohio, the
Democrats put forward and supported a candidate
for Girernor who had furiously denounced the Fu
gitive Slave law and the Kansas-Nebraska act, and
lurioukly clamored for their npeal. Slavery in hia
eves only a short time ago was a great morgl, tocial
and political evil, which Congtcss was under so
lemn obligations to restrict, and to use all its intiu
er.ee to extirpate. How much farther than this could
any professed Black Republic™ go* Indeed, Fre
mont and his suppliters went not near so far as this
Democratic candidate in Ohio, in their hostility
to klavcry and the South. And vet Fi •mnnt ind hiu
supporteni are represented, denounced, cried down
as the South's direst enemies, whilo surli men sg
Payne, the national Democratic candidate for Go
vernor of Ohio, are held up as the South’s fast acd
reliable friends, and their sucoe-ui exulted over by
Southern Democrats, as a signal and glorious South
ern triumph! Where is the consistency or the oom
mon honesty of such a course on the part of the
Southern Democracy ? W! at virtue is there in a
mere name? Can the man who calls himself a black
Republican and the man who calls himself a national
Democrat be regarded in a different light by the South
when their principles and sentiments are precisely
| identical ? Can the one be an enemy to the South,
deserving of Southern mistrust and denunciation,
aid the other a friond to the South, worthy of
Southern confidence and admiration? We see not
how this can he; and yet Southern Democrats affect
to discover a wide and wonderful difference between
a so-called national Democrat and a so-called Black
Republican, although there be not a particle of dif
fore nee in the viptys of the two on the subject of
Southern Slavery. It is this Sort of inconsistency
and hypocrisy which confounds and startles the
Southern miud, and leaves the impression that
Southern Democrats, in their eagerness for tho
apoils, are willing ar.d anxious to coalesce with the
known enemies of the South, and to hold them up
to the Southern people aa trust-worthy ar.d efficient
friends.
If the Kansas Democracy area “debauched set,
made up in most part of personal and political rascals
and knaves,’’ so also are the national Democracy in
all the Northern States—for there is not the shadow
of a shade of difference between them in principle
or in action.
The Tenth Legion Democracy on Hunter.
It appears that tho Bard Shell hiubiu Democrats of
tl* Tenth Legion are immensely excited on the subject of
the Senatorial election, and particularly savage against
poor Hunter. The Suabians held a public meeting at U*t
Buckingham Court, and pawed • series of resolutions,
which shadow forth their terrible intentions with fearful
dislinctncfs. It will be seen that the Represent ill res of
the Tenth Legion ia the next Legislature are instructed
to ruts against Hunter in tbe event of his not endoraing
thvir resolutions which, it is obvious, he cannot do, from
his Isle letter. We -ubjoln tbe fierce and pugnacious re
solves of the excited .Suabians f ithogt comment,—remark
ing merely that tbe rank and file Democracy ibeiu-elvea
have commenced the Senatorial war in earnesr, and we
oid them God speed:

but which, from the fat and jjlly appearance of manr of

In justice to the general cause ol truth and our own
conscience in particular, we cannot say much for the
personal pulchritude of cither the men or the women who
hare yet araeaiblcd in our goodly city. To be sure they
all bare quite a healthy and contented appearance, aa il
meat aud bread existed in great abundance, and aa If they
indulged in three g-tod things to a somewhat censurable
excess. We hare often marvelled, iu times like the-e,

UK. HUNTERS LKITKK.
Some effect has at last been produced by the vaiiou* ef
forts EaJc to obtaiu an avowal on Ihe part of Mr. Hun
ter. The communication* which have appeared in our
columns, and those of other papers, have prohibit- done
much, and the movemrut mado by the Democrat* ol
Rockingham ha* certainly done very much toward* elici
ting this response. Bat »e mu*t also claim some credit
for the perseverance with which our own editorial labors
have cooperated hr the attainment ol this object.
The publication of Mr. Hunter's letter ia prefaced by a
short roicmui ication from the Hon. 8. V. Leake, referring
to a letter written by the latter guutleman, and'to which
Mr- Hunter’s ia a reply. We regret exceedingly that
Mr. le-rke’s letter ha* not also been prreetited to the pub
lic. The whole aff.i.- would be much more aalielactoiilr
exposed, were the people of Vtrgiuia made acquainted
with the form and manner in which Mr. Hunter ha* been
interrogated. If, a* Mr. Leake informs us, “the interrog
ator ten propounded will be easily gathered Irom the an
swer*, ’ then it i< erident that the interrogatories were
but partially and guardedly expressed. O.i the other
band, if, aa Mr. Hunter a**ert*, they were “in »ub*tanc>
newrly the same with the questions put bv thu Enquirer "
tUru llr. Hunter ha* given a *er* incomplete response to
Mr. Leake’* interrogatories.—More ol this anon.
We ramiot admit the sufficiency of either plea urged
by Mr. Hunter, to justify a refoaal to answer the respect
ful interrogatories of the “Enquirer." In the first place,
the Hon. (! rnator doe* not plead directly that our quetu
bon* were accompanied by a threat. Nor could he, in
justice to q», have aseumeJ -uch n position. Hu describe*
u« a* uttering ‘ thrtatt, or vital vrrr to routidtrr.l " Wc
must conic** that wo are at a lo-s to understand the pre
ci*e signitiranoc ol thu exousa. The Senator cannot
surely cean to admit that no threats were used, and at
the same lime decline to answer, lest othrr pro,Jr might
believe that he Was bullied into an answer. Surely Mr.
Hunter doe* not contemplate *uch a tout deference to the
opinion* of others, as thi* would involve. The o'her po
sition assumed bj Mr. Hunter is entirely untenable. No
question which the “K' quirer" has addresrud to him, has
erer been “loutuied upon hia presumed responsibility (nr
the editorial*'' of any newspaper whatever. Wo have
indeed expressed the opinion that “The South" newspa
per wa* founded with a view to assist Mr. Hunter's poli
tical prospect*. But we have never yet expressed the
belief that Mr. Hunter has been *o imprudent a* himself
to take any step which would involve him in an unavotd
bfe responsibility for the courso of that nr any othrr now-pa
per. Tne case stand* thu-: an organis-d opposition baa been
Waged against the present administration. Mr. Hunter doe*
not deny this, nor can be deny it. Ce-taln newspaper*,
the unniUtakrsble instrument* of this opposition have
published statemen's substantially assorting that Mr. Hun
ter wa- implicated by arqulrfeeitcf tn the course of this
opposition. Though not ostensibly prctrpulng to speak
by Mr. Hunter'* authority, they did use Mr. Hunter's
name —used it to add strength to their own cause, and to
Injure that of the Administration. Under these circutu
sUnres, we called upon Mr. Hunter—not a* the Senator
intimates, “ to force upon him the office of censor of the
public pre*-,” but to rebuke the attempt made to injure
the A.lmii.i-trstiph by tbe one of hia name, by ignoring
an sympathy with Iht nrpotiUn)t of which the*
newspapers were the mere instrument*. And we a-k
agi'ni: Does Mr Hunter pcisist in refusing this act qf
justice to the Administration and to the Democratic party y
Doe* Mr. Hunter pretend that the “puVic preaa" i* enti
tled to such unbounded reverence that the Senator it
not at liberty to rebuke It* unauthorised use of his own
name* Does he pretend tha' he is restrained from de
nouncing ut just a vaults on Ihe Pre-ident, by fear* that
he may thu- invade the rightful privilege of the press * —
How i* U, that when Mr. Hunter is questioned concerning
the courae of an opposition party or (action, he answers
wiuioni expressing approval or disapproval of this coarse*
Wo c»n find no satisfactory explanation tor this reserve
on his part, ybicli appears <q rally unnecessary and inju
rious.
This refusal to Ignore all sympathy with the opposition,
Is opposed hr no heaity expression of cnfrfidcoce in tha
Administration. We are indeed informed, "the impulsion
of hostility on my part, towards the Administration ol Mr.
flnchanan, is founded upon nothing that I hare said nr
done." This ami the language which immedia'tly follow*
it, might be employed aa well hy a neutral in the contest
wsgr-d between lire Itiends of the Administration and *
fiction professing lo belong to the Democratic partr, aa by
a partisan of the Administration. Thin pod lion of appa
rent neutrality Is qualified only hy the as-ertion, “In ray.
ing this, it may be, pe-hsps, fair to add, that I hope and
expect to he able fo support Mr Buchanan’* Administra
tion In |ho main " Tin- iangu ige atill leaves Mr. Hunter
in a non-cnnimUlal po-ilioti.
It is a mere general assertion, fortified by a saving thud
which leave# him free to espouse ibe cense of ihoae who
have been engaged in the moo Insidious part of the oppo
eition. Mr. Hunter waa called upon lo expieat an opinion
ar. lo whether the course of tha opposition does or do- s
not inroleo opposition on main poiuUof policy. He avoids
any response to thi# hy the general answer, that ho ex
pect# hr support the Administration “in the main." The
very organa of Ihe opposition, known to he employed in a
systematic Course of attack on the President hare
leaned an as-eMion identical in substance, concerning
their own position. The opposition liaro chosen to de
actihe #a immaterial point* of difference their repeated
assaults on the President and hi* adriaers ; their attach*
directed at the foreign policy ol the 4dministration ;
their accusation that the President haa become the ac
complice of treachery hy retaining in office a functionary
who, by groaa ufo-pation of power, has violated his offi
cial oath; their deprecation of that policy hy which tho
President ha* attempted to maintain harmony and ona
nimitv among the Demonrau of all aeoilona - their advo
cacy for a aeparate secional organisation ol the Mouth
ern Democracy, accompanied by opprobrium cast on Ihe
Democrats of the North. Dora Mr. Hunter Ireliere that
He can acquiesce in these views slid eo operate In tiielr
application to public policy, and yet "be able to support
Mr llnrhanan's Administration in /Ar muin/" ||» d >e*
not Inform u*, either directly or by implication How
then! Why, Mi. Hunter is atill free to oppose the Ad
miniatration on a number nf point', which hare been de
scribed repeatedly by the friends ol Ihe Administration—
all aa highly important, some aa vital to the interrrte of
the I) moeratic parly.
We canno* tegir-l Mr. Hnnter's views on the Kansas.

ol its adoption nr It* eg et. The pure and simple a hro
g.arion of the M tt'aid compromise woqld indeed hareprr;

gressional comprwmtaa, which haa presented tha South
with th» shadow M irlanip'i. securing a solid and practi
cal advantage to tho non slave holding interval, and a
corra-;.. ndtng disadvantage to slate owners.
When Mr. Hunter Mtitucs to drprwcalw a mere ex
pression ol opinion an the part of Gov. Walker, to the
t^rct that th* cHatala and seal of Kausas are unlarorable I
to the introduction of alare properly, tha 8*nalor must
rametnber, not only that he, himsalt, has expressed the '
•atne opinion tubstauiiallr in the same language, but that
br hia rule oo the Btdgrr amendment he did mure to dis
courage the introduction ol slave* Into Kansas than any
intervention on th* part ui Guv. Walker could possible I
liar* effected. We hare no* wished to arraign Mr. Hun- I
ter for hia rut*. Wa are still inclined to believe that It 1
waa an act more of omission titan ol commission on hia
part. We know that the mea-uro waa hurried through,
and that many Southern men tern committed to iu sup-’ 1
purl, through a Wantonly of mature consideration. But 1
though the Democracy ol Virginia may bo persuaded to
lorgire this rol\ Mr. Hunter ought te be advised that
they sill never bo peisuadcd to rtidorve it.
Aa to Governor Walker's conduct, we hare to repeat
our previously expressed views, (for. Walker's e I pres f
sion ol oplntou a* tu th* unfavorable adaptation of the
territory to tho introduction of slavery may bar* beru
impolitic. But th* Mtenaitde motive which induced it, I
the only motive which w# can in fairneaa attribute to him, 1
was that ol a desins to (upperat unlawful tff.xu on tha
part ol tha a-tti slavery party, b* persuading them of tba
uscle-snca* ol such cfeirt*. Van Mr. Uutitcr deduce Irons
Ilia language or bi- avion any olhet fai-ly deduced mo
tive? II so. the Ssngsr lias tail, d to t xplaiu liu di*cor- ,
csy to the public. And yet, he impliedly asset is that the
Governor of Kansas did “attempt to It tlneoca th* derhaoii
*1 the pe ipls of that turn lory, upoo this question of ala
sery.'' It Oqy. W alW'aluf raw ion of opinion was not
a mere attempt th soppressonlaw M action, but aa attempt
in tndacnc* tha docfcfon of the people, thaw flow. Walk
er committed a gross impropriety, which the President
ha* not choeen to tebtika by depriving tbo subordinate of
his commission. Soch being M . Hooter's opinion, due*
he propose to h till the Proaadeut accounts',J* for thus
couutrnai ring Uw. Walker's conduct? Or duos the Sen
ator consider such conduct sufficient'? grave to demand
the rvyreiton ol hia notniwMion when hia uam* shall be
pteseutrd to the Senate, and yet too unimportant to ren
der hia retention Id i He* a matter ol complaint against
th* President ? Or does Mr. Hunter propnee to au-lain
the course ol the Prsndent, by voting to ratify Governor
Walker's nnminatioo? Which of th* throe course* docs
tho Senator propose to adopt ?
We are forced also to differ Inin Mr. Hunter in the
view, rxprrs-ed by him, that If “the Oourention Itself
waa legally cnstiiaird and elected, the question of sub
mitting their work to th* people lur ratification, was one
ol which that body had Jurisdiction atone." i ho act
which caihd the Con*, niton into being—the Kanaas-Xe
braska act—does require a final ratification by “the peo
ple." It provides (hat (he ptople of Kansas shall be 1,-tt
Irre to lorm their osn Constitution, when applying lor
admission as a Stal.-. Indeed, Mr. Hunter’s own lan
XUige lepeatrdly admits this: “accordingly, a bill waa
pa-oed upon the pr uciplw ol non intervention, in regard
to slavery, so lar a* th* Gel oral Government was con
cerned, and which left that whole subject wit Ain Me con
trol oj the f-roplr c( those territories, when they should
apply lor ad ilia toll aa State*." Here we baro the ad
mission that the wry act which intervened to rrpeai a
law protecting slavery iu Kansas, leaves the whole sub
ject within the co trcl of tAc people," to be exercised in
the adoption ol their Goostnupuii. Again: “The sole
uupc mr jroiup.1-1111 g mj nappy a lC*Ult, depend'd Upon
auhmittiug this question ol slavery to the ynrple ol lliiae
territo ice, when they came (o lorm thrir Constitutions us
Slates. "With the rianaoa of the people themarlrra, so
Ur as the character of the new 3 ate* was cooct'rnrd, the
D.-ruix iaiic parly of all sec'iou* declared they would bo
-H'iehed." It canuot be lightfullv contended that the ae
liou ol a Convention which retuaea to submit its work lo
popular ratification, is equivalent to “ant,milting" the
whole subject “In the people,’’ • to the people themaelrea.”
Such a rclu*al woulJ remove the form>non of thrir Con
stitution Irom the ‘ nitrol of the people."
Such a refusal would be in notation of the Kansas Ne
braska act. More than that. It would violate the funda
ni«ntal principle if Democratic Republicanism, the aore
reigntg of the people. Iu Mr. Ilunler'a own language, to
abandon the principle “of the right of the people ol each
State to determine the character id their own domestic In
stitutions without pn-judlco to their claim of admission in
to the Union," "by a retrograde movement, would be an
act ol (elo lie a* in thw pwily, and nut merely a lotlv, but a
crime lor which prosperity would never lorgiva’’the Dem
ocratic party. It ia iule to urge that this right has been
di-rrgaided in repeated instance*. We know that the
Constitutions ol Territories, applying for addmiseloti a*
States, have been adopted without popular ratification; and
it ia not difficult to point to an instance in which such a
Constitution lias been adnp'ed, even without tha Intelven
tiou of a legally constituted Territorial Convention.
But uu parly will new alti nipt lo maintain a re-pact for
a one of these precedent*, and other* aie cxcu-abie, on the
ground ol popular siqolcaociiie. In the latter instances
they urestrihua adopted without complaint Iron, any por
lion t'l lb* peoplejtarsvdistclv iiitersatod, staiplr h cause
there wa»'no g">Wdjpd>i'g question ito be ai'justid.
No such precskenrcaii be properly applied to the case
now under c m«h|erilion. The people of Kansas aru di
vided ou a question of high importance. They are unwil
ling to permit this question to go by default. It wa* to
satisfy their urgent a d rightful demand on this subject,
that the Governor ol Kansas give the soauratice wnicli
h>* bun the source of such unwarranted complaint._
Whether lie ndoph-d the most prudent or politic mean* by
which lo render this a*-uranee, we are nut called upon lo
detenni: e. But that ho violated no duty iu attempting to
guard the right of the people from the prospective possi
bility of an invasive encioachuici.t on the part of their
delegites assembled in convention, is a po-ilion from
which wr cannot be driven. Moreover, we repeal, that
the ciicurastance* ol the case may b • aueh as impeialive
ly to demand that Congress shall reject a Constitution
which has not been adopted by popular ratification. Take
the instance now in hand. We are informed by a Virgin
ian who ha* cast his lot io Kansas, a man who has risked
hia all for the pro-slavery cause there, and no* playiug a
prominent part in the politics of the tcrritnrv, that al
though the anti-slavery parly have a majority in the terri
tory, "in the lump,"the districts have been so divided a*
to give the pro-*!avery party a ra*jority in the Legi-la
tura and In the Convention. Buppoac that our informant
ia himself correctly inhumed—would Congress, with this
■tale of fact* placed before them; admit the tciritory as a
Slate, under a Constitution which had not been submitted
to popular ratification ? Would not such an act, on the
part ol Congiese, constitute a fraud on the people of
Kansas * v
We cannot understand Mr. Hunter’s avowal of ignorance
as to the president’s opinion on this subject. That opm
ioo has been fully eipressed In the Siliman letter And
we are equally unable to appreciate the position assumed
by tbe Senator, as lo the impossibility ol t practical i-eoe
arisii g between the President and those entertaining dif
l*renf opinion* on these question*. Tlietg at* two pos
sible eventualities which luighl pre-enl practical Issues._
The one is the ratification or rejection by the Beuato, of
Governor Walker's nomination. The other supposes ’an
a'tempt on the part ol the Constitutional Convention ol
K tnsas "lo luoit the power of the people to lorm the
Bute Constitution accoiding to their own pleasure ” by
presenting to Congress a Constitution withheld from pop
ular ratifica'loo.
For all effectual purposes, then, except the expression
of some abstract view* which we cannot approve, Mr.
Hunter still remain* silent. He exprenso* neither xp’pro^
val nor disapproval of the views and counts of the oppo
sition faction wbieh has ventured to claim h.s
cence. Woarertinpl? rcf/rred to a refiew ol hi* past
course a* the only answer which ho deign* to offer to our
quesliona a* to bie preset,t view*. Yet bis psat course is
a* insufficient to obtain satisfactory eypi*nation* now re
qnlred a* are hi* present declaration*. i|* still tuamUlus
an unbroken reaerre.
What we wish i*. that a man who ask* the Miff, ages ol
the Virginia llemocrscy to retain him in an derated offi
cial position, shall bituaell olearly dt line bia present poli
tical poaitioo.
Wc do not require that Mr. Hunter shall commit him
self to all the future acts ol President Hurhanan. All
that wa ark i* that he shall end orse the policy of the pre
terit Administration, so f*r a* it ha* yet bran dereloped,
and manifest con(idonee in its course, by a full renunri*'
tion nf all sympathy with the opposition faction which
Inf cbiinfd hi* scqulaecence.
