We have already expressed the opinion, that in Vir
ginia, and some of the other Southern States, a majority
Ot the rank and file of the Democracy are,in their hearts,
for Douglas over Breckinridge. But the leaders of the
party, the wire-workers, the managing politician*, are
lor Breckinridge. The numbers are one way and the in
tellect of the party is the other. The money bags of the
administration are also thrown into Breckinridge’s scale.
The fight will, therefore, be full of interest to a calm
poiloaofitcr, like ourself, who is intent on studying thy
piin.-iples of human nature, and lb# influence.-* that con
ti ol the conduct of men.
* Mind and money are certainly powerful agents. Whe
ther they are strong enough to overcome and buy up
'.numbers, remains to be seen. All the cunning of the
party leaders will be exercised to the utmost extent, to
out-wit, entrap, and overcome the Douglas men in the
Sm-h, and all the patronage and power of the admini ;
t ration will be used for the same purpose. Purchasable
newspapers, if there be any, and pliant politicians, of
whomAhere are scores, will be bought up at good prices.
Now is the lime for fat jobs, and contracts, and long ad
vertisements' We shall watch the course of the Doug
las men with much interest, and we invite the public to
.. watch them also . not that we care a fig about it either
way, but merely as it may develop the philosophy of hu
Walpole, the old knave! said every man had bis price.
We will uow see how far the old inan was right,for every
effort will be made to buy up the Douglas men by hook
or by crook! We do not mean, of course, that they wilt
be bought dirtctlv. for a given sum of money, like cattle
in the market! By no means' That is too gross a mode
of proceeding! It would shock the sensibilities of the
subject too much ! But, there is a retiued and delicate
mode of buying up, by offices, contracts, jobs, advertis
ing in oue's paper, and promoting ooe's laudable desire
to serve the country in a public capacity ! This thing is
well understood about Washington, and an awkward, un
suspecting fellow, from the rural districts, may have a
noose around his neck before he knows it!
for the honor of human nature, we hope Walpole’s
infamous notion may be discredited and refuted by the
action ot the Donglasites. But we must confess we are
not without fears as to the result. Patronage, and Bit
ten, and the emolumeuts of office are very seductive.—
Although our poople are, iu theory, the most democratic
in the world,- there is no other race that delights so much
iu titles, and offices, and the consequences which they give
in the public eye.
We advise the masses of the Douglas men then to
keep a sharp; lookout on thier leaders. Let them watch
their editors ^lonely. They a-e a hungry, and we fear,
a *l;pp*ry pafck! A few poet-offije, or land office, or
State department advertisements may do wonders. Meu
a e very readily convinced that the course which inter.
• t points to, is the right course.
The cunning Breckinridge men will approach the
D vogUmtee with faces wreathed in smiles, and very po
litely urge them to consent to go into their Convention.
Th»* will argue to show that this is is all very tair, and
entirely consistent with democratic usages, and they
will, even, with bated breath, whispar that they are not
so mortally hos ile to Douglas as might be imagined, and
that they would not die of chagrin if the Convention
should declare for Douglas, or il the electoral vote should
be cast for him. It will be the old story of the spider
and the ffy. N'o sooner does the By eater the parlor of
the spider, than he finds himself entangled in the meshes
ot the web. Let the Douglas men go into Convention
with the Dt>unionists, and from that moment, they are
• entrapped and ruined. We all remember how the Hun
ter men hunny-fugglcd the disciples of Wise. Wi-e was
tne acknowledged favorite of Virginia, but by trick and
bullying, his friends were driven to the wall. But for
the want of wit and pluck ou the part of the friends of
our ancieut neighbor aud cherished pet, on that occasion.
Gizzard-foot might uow have been cock of the walk, with
a united democracy a: his heels. The same game will
be played again, and the Douglas men will find them
selves on the B«t of their backs.
The troth is the old Whigs who have crept into the
Democratic ranks, are too shatp for the old liners. They
wear the epaulettes and control the party. It is a re
tu irk able fact that almost aU the renegade Whigs are
for Breckinridge, and agou.-t Douglas. It is natural,
however, for as Breckinridge was originally a W big him
•eH the Whig interlopers into the Democratic partv
have a fellow feeling for him!
We shall then watch the moves on the chess-board.
wi*h much interest, and as by standers can sometimes
■ere of the game than the players, we shall note
whether there is any prompting from Washington, or
•beating'round the board! Our sympathises ^re with
uumbers, but we fear the politicians will entrap them.—
IV e lean to the fly, but the chances are the spider will
nab hint! Our heart overflows with tenderness for the
Unsophisticated masses, but we are sorely afraid, that
they will be cheated and sold by those in whom they
hare put their trust! The leaders will he bought up,
an 1 they will betray and sell out the masse*!
We promise the hottest, well-meaning rank and tile,
however, that we will be their faithful sentinel. We will
keep a strict watch on the lenders and the newspapers
professing to be for Douglas, and sound the note cf
alarm, at tbe first symptom of treachery '
We shall hare an especial eye on the journals of the
Tenth Legion! The Legionites hare strong claims on
Our gratitude and affection,which we are ever prompt to
acknowledge! If, therefore, the columns of those pa
pers shall be graced hr government advertisements, our
vigilance will be re doubled, and at the Unit symptom of
ahakiness, we shall cry aloud and spare not!

Toder thi* caption the Columbus A’nyiarsr remark*
tat the Hon. John C. Breckinridge, the seceders’ eandi
ate toe the Presidency, appear* to have the happy facul
f of adapting himself to any circumstance* by which he
jay be sorrouaded. In 1858, lie ran upon the dncin
•ti Platform, which he heartily endorsed and defended,
a 186)1, he i* the candidate of a faction who disrupted
le Democrat!.- party and seceded at Charleston because
t re alfrmed the Cincinnati Platform pure and simple!
fhe Udder by which Mr. Breckinridge ascended to the
l’ice Presidency in 1858, he eoutemptuoualy kicks from
inder him in 1*60 when he aspires to the higher position
»f the Presidency. No one, of course, is verdant enough
to believe that Mr. Breckinridge now spams what be
hugged to his bosom in 1856, Irom any real detestation
of its iniquity, or any present conviction that bis step
ping-stone to power in 1858 was a “vile means" which
lie cannot bouorably use any longer ; but it is apparent
that be left tbs wbcle matter to the only parties that
would then take bim for the Vic* Presidency, and noa
for the Presidency, and accepted in both instances th<
dinedy antagonistic platforms which they required bin
to ascend 1
It is averred in behalf of some Southern politicians
that they did not in 1856 construe the Cincinnati Plat
form as sustaining squatter sovereignty, but that now
having become convinced that it upheld that heresy
they repudiate and renounce it. This claim, however,
cannot be set up for Mr. Breckinridge. He declared, it
1856, in the most positive manner, that he understood
it as demanding for the people of the Territories the
right to admit or exclude slavery while in their Terrilo
rial condition. Here is what be said :
“ I happened to be in Coogres* when the Nebraska
bill passed, and gave it my voice and vote, and because
it did wbat it did, via: It acknowledged the riyht of thi
People of the Territory to settle the yuention for them
selves and not because I supposed, wbat I do not noa
believe, that it legislated slavery into the Territory. Tb<
Democratic party is not a pro-slavery party.”
“ The people of the Territories, under the Kansas-Ne
brarka act. bate the full right to establish or prohibil
slavery, just as a State woul.l, which principle is as old
as republican government itself.”—J. C. BaicctNMaaE
This was the doctrine of hi* party in 1886, and Mr
Breckinridge took an active part in teaching it to thi
people. But it appears that in the last year he gave it
hi* adhesion to the opposite doctrine, and denied to thi
Squatters the power which be so strenuously claimed foi
them in 18561 This is only cumulative proof of his accotn
modaiirg disposition, and shows that be was only adapt
iug hi.to elf to surrounding circumstances—just as b<
would do if he should be elected President. The extrac
from his spe-ch of December, 1859, before the Kentucky
Legidature, which the Democratic papers are now pub
li-hiug to prove that lie is opposed to Squatter Sow
reigntv, was made just after his election to the Senate
for which othce he was opposed chiefly by the Douglai
Democrats of the Legislature, who did not liko his con
necuou with the Buohauan Administration, ue accept
ed, as usual with him, the platform of the taction whon
cand late he was: aud he now stands before the couutn
the advocate of squatter sovereignty in 1836, and its re
pudiatnr in 1860. Uow he will '"turn up” under thi
uext change of circumstances, is a question about as in
tercstiog as the rising place of a dipchip.
A Doug'aw D. iuouatratiou la Nashville.
Silurdav morning the Xatioual Democracy at Xashvillt
met to ratify the nomination of Douglas and Johnson.—
The met ting was Urge and enthusiastic. Gov. Foot*
§t ited the object of the meeting. Col. V. R. Stevenson
was chosen Chairman, and Dr. A. H. Hurley, one of the
Democratic Central Committee, was appointed Secretary.
Dr. Felix R diertson the first white bora iu Nashville,
and a Ufedocg Democrat, sent the following letter. Gov
Foote spoke of lira as having been for fifty years thi
intimate associate, friend and counsellor of Jackson,
and as au honest, intelligent, fearless, and patriotic
man:
Dr. F. YV. Robertson presents his respects to the Dem
ocratic Ratification meeting to-day, and regrets exceed
iusly iba: his ill-health will rot permit him to participate
iu the meeting, but his heart is in the object Ue wil
not believe that the Democratic masses can, by wicked
and d signing men, be led off Iroin their cherished and
long observed usage of giving a faithful support to thi
regular nominees of their party. Xo unprejudiced mind
will pretend to deny that Douglas and Johnson are thi
regular nominees of the Democratic party for Prcsideni
aud Vice President. Work faithfully from now till Xo
veub.-r and trust in Providence tor the result.
Xashviu.ic, July 7, 18C0.
The meeting enthusiastically united in the adoptior
of resolutions ratifying the nomination of Douglas and
Johnson, aud proposing the assemblage of a Oonveutior
in Nashville, on the 23;h inst., for arranging an Electo
ral ticket. Gov. Foote then made au able and eloquent
speech for the candidates. He reviewed the history o;
the Democratic party, proved Douglas and Johnson tc
be tue Democratic nominees, and denounced the Seee
dors’tick-t as sectional and irregular, liis speech wa.<
of such length that it was concluded in the evening.

says:
* We did not hasten over, a* we thought we would

quite well tilled, and on a close examination of the faces
we found quite a number of our oi l Whig friends, who
s emed to be highly delighted with the speech which Mr.
T m Rives was delivering.
“At the close of Mr. Rives’ speech, the meeting was
adjourned over to the Court House, where quite a re
speetable number of the citiz-ns of the county listened
with evident sign* of satisfaction to an eloquent speech
in behalf of Hon. Stephen A. Douglas from our towns

POLITICS IN BUCKINGHAM—THE SBCEDERS “SOI
BACK"—TUEIR TICKET UNSOUND.
To tkt Editor of tke If hiy:
Bt'cKiNditAM, July !>, 1860.
The Seceders held a meetiug to day to ratify the nomi
nation of Breckinridge and Lane—but did not ratily—
postponing until August Court. Mr. Chas. Irving msdi
a strong speech against the Beeeders and in lavor o
Douglas. He denounced' the Secedere as a factious mi
mty, wlio had quit the Convention oa no principle bu
hatred of Doughs, aud wlio had noutinate<l men lee
Southern than he. Breckiuridgc was a Kentucky Email
cipation st, who, failing to carry abolition into that State
had moved to a hireling State, Minnesota, to praclist
law; while old Joe Line had voted again-t tbeadmiseiot
of Florida into the Union, because it was slave territory
A pretty ticket far the exclusive champion* of Southeri
rights! Mr. I. protested against the arrogant dietatiot
ot this factious aud unprincipled minority.
During the evening, the subject was very much dis
cussed among the sovereigns. The leaders mostly be
long to the seceding wing of the party.and probably they
will carry a m •jority of the party with them. But then
were some strong and zealous Douglas men on band.—
One of them proclaimed, that he would bet f 10,000 tba
seven States could not be named that would vote loi
Breckinridge, and offered fiOo to auy one, who wouh
get bis bet taken; but iu vain.
The S«orders were evidently averse to any public dis
cussiou. Their policy seems to be to entrap the Doug
la>ites by ne xus of a double-shotted ticket. They an
willing to leave the question to the present list of elec
tors (uine out of 15 being for Breckinridge), with thi
undeistanding that the six Douglas electors shall be gov
erued by the nine Breckinridge gentry. A very fail
proposition.
In view of the election going to the House of Repre
sentatives, the Doug!a* men in Virginia have a vital iu
icrest in defeating the Breckiuridgc electors—for the voti
of > his State might be the means of putting Breckinridgi
in the House and excluding Douglas. TbLs fact wdl en
venom the tight in every county in the Commonwealth
and dispose both of the factious to prefer the success o
Bell to that of its fraternal, but hated rival.

“At a meeting of the official and other members of Fin
castle Circuit, Roanoke District, held »t Black Creek
Church, June 30th, I860, for the purpoee of considering
the action of the late General Conference on the subject
of slavery. Rev. Alfred Buhrman was called to the chair
and Andrew I,. l’itier elected Secretary. The chair sta
ted the object of the meeting, whereupon the following
brethren weie appointed a committee to draft a pre
amble and resolutions expressive of the sense of the
meeting, vii: Henry 1. Stevens, Jere Stair and Andrew
L. lhtxer, who, after retirtng for deliberation, reported
the following, which, on motion was adopted uuani
monslv.
Whereas, the late General Conference of the M. h.
Church, at its late session in Buffalo, resolved by a very
large majority U insert a new chapter iu the discipline
on the subject 0*' slavery, and whereas, said chapter de
clares the buying, selling and holding of human beings
as chattels, to be sinful, and adtliouishca Prtaehtr* and
People to use all lawful and Christian incana for its ex
tirpation, and wl cress said declaration and admonition
is an inquisition into the motives underlying the relation
between master and slave, subversive ot our interests,
aud the enforcement of which, by our preachers, would
make them violators of and amenable to the laws of our
State, and whereas wo regard the declaration false is
theory aud the admoui'iuu impossible in practice, aud
whereas we believe that we cannot any longer retain our
connexion with the Northern Conferences, and maintain
our self-respect and accomplish our work as Christian
men in this State, therefore be it
AW red, 1. That while the legislative change of
chapter 7 on slavery has not the form of positive statute,
it does in our judgment make slave-holding indiscrimi
nately sinful, aud in fact constitutes a new term of mem
bership. Therefore, we solemnly, and in the fear of
God, repudiate the action of the General Conference,
and declira our fixed and unalterable purpoee, never to
submit to this unrighteous legislation.
3. That we still have the fullest confidence in the fi
delity of the preachers of the Baltimore Conference, to
our interest, and believe they mill stand by us to the
last extremity.
3. That as the Virginia portion of the Baltimore Con
ference has made sacrifices of peace aud influence for
the sake of union with the Baltimore and Maryland por
tion of said Conference, those portions should uow stand
by us in a united and unflinching purpose to sever the
ties of ecclesiastical connection with all those who ap
prove the action of the last General Conference.
4. That we hereby call upon our brethren (Preachers
and Lavraen) of Maryland, the District of Columbia, hast
Baltimore, Tbiladelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, Western
Virginia, <in<i all other Conferences, to unite witll us in a
! movement of opposition to the unconstitutional aud arbi
trary action of the last General Conference.
3 That we urge our people everywhere to rem tin calm
and quiet rill the uext session of the Baltimore Confer
ence at StauntOD.
6. That we heartily approve of Dr. Bond's iltfeuce of
the Border Conferences, aud his views of the change of
"Chapter 7 on Slavery,’’ as found in his editorial of June
9th, Baltimore Advocate, and hereby tender to him our
hearty thanks for his fidelity to our interests.
7. That we siiccest that one lavman (elected by the
Quarterly Conferences) to each preacher be seut front ev
ery circuit aud station to Staunton, next March, to con
fer with our preachers os to our present and future
church relation.
8. That these resolutions be published in the Baltimore

To the Editor of the HViiij ;
Some of your city papers report tho number of visi

that I hope you will correct the statement. List week
there were between 130 to 200, and to day the register
shows near 3o<>. The company is daily increasing very
fast, and by the end of the week there is every probabil
itv of its beiug enlarged to the full capacity of the place.
1 have rarely seeu a more elvgautgathering of gentlemen
and ladies.
We bear little of politics. Hero the talk is for Bell
and Everett, though that may be owing to tho unusual
silence of tho Democrats who are as quiet as oysters. 1
have seeu but few with sufficient energy to call the name
of the lost party. The “Territorial Abolitionist" has no
friends here, but we look for some from Petersburg. Al

ARRIVAL OF THE PIKE’S PEAK AND CALIFORNIA
OVERLAND MAILS.
St. Josiph, Julr l i —Tho Pike's Peak express arrived
last night, with advices from Denver City to July 5th.
Tbe celebration of the -1th passed off with ouly a shoo -
ing affair at a race.
The recent favorable accounts from the Arkansas
mines are confirmed. Business was still dull, but im
proving slowly. Au average of forty trains per day were
returning lo me m:c*. aim me arrivals were ucurnasiug.
The weather was hot.

Ten convicts escaped from prisou on the 20th.
The Republican Slate Convention had nominated
Charles A. Washburn, Wm. H. Weeks, Charles L. Tut

The Jacksonville (Oregon) Sentiuel extra of the 16th
gives the official vote of every county except Wascoe.—
Shield, deni., has a majority over Logan, rep., for Con
gress, of 78. The vote of Nascoe county will inercsse
the democratic majority. The Legislature Ma ids light
democrats to tin opposition ou joint ballot.
Nothing has yet been heard of the partv whieh loft
Carsou Valley on the ninth, to establish the pony ex
press. There hare beeu no recent disturbances at the
Wa-hoe mines, but the danger still exists ou the road to
Salt Like, and hopes arc entertained that the troops at
Camp Floyd will protect the mail route.
The accounts from the Washoe iniues are not very fa
vorable regarding the new discoveries. The Comstock
lead rein continues to widen, appearing more valuable
and extensive. But little confidence is felt in the silver
mines, and prospectors are becoming discouraged.
THE ALABAMA OPPOSITION PARTV.
We stated a day or two since that the Opposition par
ty of Alabama, in Convention assembled at Montgome
ry, had declared in favor ol the Breckinridge and Line
ticket. It turns out, however, that the Convention tc
which we referred embraced only the representatives ol
the so-called “Southern Rights Democracy of Alabama”
—a mere fragracot, it must be confessed, of the old Op
position party of the State, only nine counties having
sent delegates to Montgomery.
The regular Opposition Convention of Alabama, which
assembled recently at Salem, was numerously attended,
and resulted in the formation of a strong elcctorial tick
et for Bril and Everett. According to former tests the
Democratic majority in the State docs not exceed 12,000,
. and with two Democratic tickets in the field, each receiv
ing a strong vote, the claims of Bell and Everett in Ala
bama are by no means desperate.— Virginia Index,

ADDRESS or MK3SR3. RlV*3 AND HARMAN.
To the Democrat* of Virginia, who are in favor of eon
forming to tho usage* of the party, and who are for pre
serving it* national organiittiort.by supporting the o**n
iueea for President and Viot President of the United
Stale*, Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, and Herscbell V.
Johnson, of Georgia, duly nominated by the adjourned
National Convention, held at Baltimore, the undersigned,
members of the Democratic 8(at* Central Committee of
Virginia, beg leave to submit the following statement:
By a call from the Chairman of the State Central Com
mittee, it* members held * meeting in the city of Rich
mond,'on Tuesday, the loth inst, to take such action a*
might' he deemed necessary to harmonize and conciliate
the division now existing in Virginia between the friends
ol Breckinridge and Lane and those of Douglas sod John
son. The proposition first submitted to the i ommluee
was whether a State Convention should be held. The
undetsigued, aware of the fact, as the Democracy ofVir
ginia generally arc, that the State Convention which as
sembled in the spriug pledged the party to support the
nomiuees of the National Convention—this pledge hav
ing been made by the body which appointed the Central
Committee—it could aot be revoked by said committee,
nor could the committee, in the opinion of the under
signed, take any action or institute any proceeding look
ing directly or iudlreotly to the support of other candi
dates than those named by the Democratic National Con
vention.
That'the Convention, should the committee decide to
call ODe, waa expected to nominate an elecoral ticket,
which would cast the electoral vote of the Slate against
the regular nominees of the National Convention, Douglas
and Johnson, there could not be a doubt Being satisfied
that the object of the majority of the committee was to
promote the nomination of an electoral ticket for the
support of candidates hostile to tbote of tho National
Democracy, the undersigned did not feel authorized to
aid in making this inroad upon the time-honored usage
of the party, and they therefore voted against the call of
a Convention; it, however, was adopted. Still being
anxious to besl dissension, to conciliate brethren of the
same party, who have so often and so gallantly fought
together uuder the same flag, whoee eagle* they have
kept perched so long upon the ramparts of the Constitu
tion. the uudereigned submitted the following fair, just,
and charitable proposition;
"Whereas, tho present division of the Democratic par
ty must lead to the loss of the electoral vote of Virginia,
uulcss some compromise can be effected; and, whereas,
this division of the party is caused by the nomiualion of
Messrs. Breckiuiidge and Lane, by their friends at Balti
more, and by the nomination of Douglas and Johnson,
bv their friends also at Utltimore, each by bodies claim
ing to be the National Democratic Convention; now,
therefore, with the view of restoring the question a* near
ly back to the bands of the people as possible,
"Kttolvtd, That we recommend to the friends of each
of tho tickets to hold each a seperato convention, to
meet in Charlottesville, ou the ninth day of August, to
be separately organized and to be held iu separate build
ings, to effect u compromise, if possible; and on the
failure of which, that said conventions be left to take
such course as they may deem proper."
This proposition so just iu itself, to refer to the dis
tracted members of a great party, brought into collision
with each other, not by any act of theirs, but by seca
ders from tho National Convention, was not met by a
direct vote on its merits, but. fell by a side-blow uuder a
motion to lay on the table. Was this not enough for
the undersigned to offer? It said to the divided De
mocracy, we usurp no power; we make no iuroad upon
tho usages of the party; you arc the sovereigns; you are
the sufferers; take the question yourselves and arrange
it as you tbiuk best, and, if separate you must, why you
must t'Ulr the terms of the separation.
The politicians and Presidential aspirants had, by the
nomination ol two tickets, at Baltimore, caused tins divi
sion in Virgiuia. They knew what would be the result
of their action; then produced the discord; we desired
that the /nople thus divided should each separately con
sult and correct, if possible, the digram violation of the
lime-honored usages of the party. This olive branch
was laid on the table, to wither ai d die; and tbe people,
who were told at Baltimore, are now to be delivered,
whether they will or not! Freemen, shall the politicians
or the people rule ? The issue is iu your bands; and it
the past history of the gallant leaders, wh have passed
from among ns; if the warning voice of those who coun
si 1 us to go for the cause and not for men; if the clariou
notes of the Napoleon of the press, that greut aud patri
otic man, Thomas Ritchie, are stiil ringing in our ears,
“Rally, rally to the nominees of our parly!”—if these
teachings will not suffice to stimulate you to action, and
the decisions of Uouveutions shall be no longer binding
upon honorable men, then you must choose submission.
For ourselves, we will suud by the party, its uominees,
aud its old platform.
The uudersigned will not go into a review of the fact*
which transpired at Charleston and Baltimore, to prove
whether Douglas and Jolinsou or Breckinridge aud Lane
are the regular nominees. It is euough to show that
one-third of a convention cannot make a Senatorial, Con
gressional or State nomination, much less a nomination
for the National Democratic party of thirty-turee States!
Yet this was the strength of the Seccders’ convention,
according to their owu showing. It is enough to show
that no member was commissioned or accredited to sit in
the body that nominated Breckinridge and Lane; it is
enough to show that, the delegates to the National Con
vention were commissioned to sit in and uot out of it.—
We shall not introduce any argument to prove that their
nomination is null and void. As well might the chair
man ol the central committee, with four members, with
draw from the room in which wo sat, organize them
selves, and decline that they wero “the Slate central
committee" and that the other two thirds, ten members,
were no', competent to transact business. Indeed, why
could not the undersigned take the position that they are
the central comm ttec ? It would ouly be working out
the principles of this nan invention.
Nor shall we, on the otbt r hand, argue to show that
Douglas and Johnson were the regular nominees. It is
enough to show that they wero nominated by a body au
thorized to make u nomination, that Douglas’ nomina
tion, when made unanimous, washy a vote of more than
two-thirds of the entire Electoral College, viz: 210
votes.
No friend of Breckinridge and Line has vet been so
bold ns to aver that their election can he made by the
people. Their entire elf rt is to carry him before the
House of R preseutaiives. Is this Democratic usage?
H is the contest between Jcll'eison aud Buir been for
gotten ? H as the struggle between Crawford, Adams
aud Jackson been forgotten ? Surely these warnings
should teach Democrats a s id lesson. If not, what ele
ments in the present House of Represent! ives are so
enticing a« to induce a Democrat to subject the claims
of a favorite of his party to that body ? Have they for
gotten the eleection of the Speaker? Don’t they know
that the Black Republicans can c trry or defeat any mea
sure? We cannot believe that the jieople desire that
tii h a Home shall select a President lor them.
Then what shall be done? I he under-ign-d, after
much reflection and consultation with Democrats of dis
tinction for their talents aud service in the cause of De
mocracy, concur iu the plan suggested tor a mass Con
vention of National Democrats, who adhere to the usa
ges and nominees of the regular organization, to be held
at Staunton on the 10th ol next August.
Iu our opinion, this is the only way which will secure
the election of the nominees ol the National Democracy,
aud defeat the election of Lincoln by the people.

DaKADurn Amain at Lawk Bokrkic.—Three Spaniardi
Kitted hit a Chinaman—The Chinaman Shot Head.—
A terrible affair occurred at Froetorvilie, Lake Borgne,
on Saturday afternoon, the main facts only of which
bare yet reached town. It appears that a Chlnamau
went into a coffeehouse with a party of fifteen to drink,
aud only put dowu twenty-five ceuta. They went out,
und another Chiuamau went in and claimed a drink, but
the barkeeper, a Spaniard, refused to give it to him.—
The Chinaman slapped him in the face, aud the Spaniard
threw a tumbler at him. A countryman of the barkeep
er's weut in to his assistance, whereupon the Chinaman
stabbed him. lie then rushed out and slabbed another
Spauiard on the gallery, who attempted to stop him.—
He then ran for the wharf, and was pursued bv another
Spaniard, named A cgustino Fe lerd.and he got cut in -eve
ral places. The Cclestiul desperado leaped into the Lake to
swim to a boat, but before he reached one lie was sin t
dead. The two men subbed in the coffeehouse expired
shortly after. Fellerd was brought up to town, but died
in the Charity Hospital at 7 o’clock yesterday morning.
He was stabbed in several places, and the flesh was lite
rally hewed off from the bone on the right arm, te .wreu
the elbow aud shoulder. He was a member of the Span
ish Benevolent Association.—K. O. Bulletin.
A Littli Dtrnooi.Tr.—The Laclede (Mo.,) Journal
“regrets to learn" that a “little difficulty” occurred at a
horse race ou Fox Creek, Douglas county, Missouri, tha
results of which are summed up as follows:—Win. W.
Gideon, a citizen of Wright county, was shockingly and
brutally beaten over tbe head with a gun, by Jack Aslup,
until life was extlucL Arthur Neal was fatally stabbed.
William Neal, Isaac Davis and Joseph Todd were knock
ed down aud severely injured ; a man named Teterick
bud his bead spilt open. Jack Aslup was kuocked down,
William Aslup'sjaw nos broken—another Aslup had hia
arm broken and his head badly bruised— aud a man
named Davis was shot through tbe hand and wrist, al
though not participating iu the “little difficulty.” “These
men,” adds the Journsl, “had long lived neighbors aud
fi iends.”

Uf^CIDID.—A number of oar \ Irgtnla contain port
riaa of tbe Democratic atripa hare not yet decided under
which banner they will light. In reviewing tbe difficul
tie* under which the party ire now encompassed, tbe
Rom not Argot, eaya: .
"If yther one of the Democratic candidate* hare half
tbe stNDgth, in the oppoeite section that bit friend* con
fidently claim for him, the inevitable conaequence mutt
be that Lincoln will carry every Northern, cod Bell and
Everett, every South Slate. Should Lincoln carry the
free State*, be will reoeive 183 electoral vote*, when 153
is all that is necessary to elect him.
"Of tbe Democratic papers In Virginia, which have
defined tbeir positions so far as we are informed, 14 are
for Breckinridge and Lane, and 8 are for Douglas and
Johnson.* In view of theoe facts, is there a sane man in
Virginia,-who can entertain the idea for a moment that
Bell and Everett will not carry tbe State by an over
whelming majority f It is an admission that we are
pained to make, but it i* folly and madness to console
ourselves with impossibilities.”
Close Vote.—Upon the down train on the South-Side
Railroad, on Wednesday last, a vote was taken in one ol
the coaches, as to the preference of the passengers for
the different candidates for the Presidency, with the fol
lowing result: Breckinridge and Lane 15, Bell and Ever
ett 15, Douglas and Johnson 15. The coach contained 45
male adult*, and it is a little remarkable that politically,
they should have been so equally divided. A good deal
of merriment was occasioned by a strong minded woman
in the coach, wlo wished to cast her vote for Douglas.
The Breckinridge ratification meeting at Charleston!
S. C., waa addressed by the lion. R. B. Kbett, who ac
cording lo the Charleston News, "strikingly enforced the
propriety of tbe South's preparing to take her destiny
into her own hands, in the Union, if possible, if not, out
of it.” Tbe resolutions of the meeting recognize Breck
inridge sod Lane as the nominees of the Richmond Con
vention, and do not recognise tbeir nomination by the
Convention held at tbe Maryland Institute in this city.
Dehth'Ctive Hail Storm.—We learn that a terrible
hail storm, |iasacd over a portion of Halifax county, on
Wednesday evening, doing immense damage to the Core
and Tobacco crops. The destruction in the neighbor
hood ol Clover Depot, on the Danville Railroad, is said
to he immense, the Corn and Tobacco being literally
torn to pieces. Some of ike stones, we learn, were at
large as hen's eggs.

THE BONNET TRADE.
A correspondent of the Boston TnctlUr% at franklin, Maas., tbs

“The bonnet business of ths season was brought to a eloss about
two wtek* ago, and the fair occupants of ths several manufacto

Dess so4*0u h»s been good-not remarkably active, but good. At
the commencement ef ihe year high expectations were raised, and
arrangements were made for a large increase of manufactures.—
One, two, three, and four weeks passed away, and still the market
was dull au 1 uopromljlng. Fears were awakened that the season
would prove a d sastrous one to all parti- s concerned. Hut much
later than usual, encouraging sales began, though not “brisk and
lively " Western trader* were c*uUous In thstr purchases, while
Ihe market was rapid y filling up ullh g >ods Thus, the first part
of the setsoQ “dragged Its slow length along." glviog place,for the
last two or three mouths, to a much thriftier trade The number
of ca*e* of tonoets manufactured In this place during the season
will not fall much below Un 1 h«-ae cases wi I average,
