The County Committee regard the present as a nt time to call your atten tion to a few facts which present them selves on the eve of the approaching election. While we do not deem it necessary to remind you of the indispensableness of an united efi'ort at the polls, yet in view of the past, we cannot forbear re calling to your memory the lessons evolved by the late election in this county demonstrative of the fact, that we must now work with indefatigable zeal if you would secure the success of the Republican ticket on the 13th of next October. OUR COUNTY TICKET. Our candidates are before you they are good and true men nothing can be gained, while much will be lost to us, by exchanging them for any of our opponents. Our candidate for the Senate, J: A. PARVHJ, is a tried man. He has rep resented this connty in the Legislature and in tho Constitutional Convention. He is honest and capable nothing more need be said of him, for all of you know him. HENRY RKKCE is also a man of pure Republican faith. Ably discharging his duties as postmaster of the city of Muscatine, his adherence to right amid the wild fluctuations of the Democratic party, worked too bright a contrast be tween himself and the followers of Douglass, and he was proscribed by the Administration of Gen. Pierce. He was Postmaster by virtue of an appoint ment made, after the people by a large majority had voted for his appointment yet he was removed because he would not swear by the new Democratic creed contained in Douglasses Kan$as~J\\ braska Bill. The people asked for his appointment —they did not ask for his removal but, because he would not worship at the shrine of Slavery, he was removed and one from the pure Stock of old Virginia appointed in his place—not at the request of the people, but at the request of the secret reporters, of the Pierce Administration, in Mus catine. Republicans, it is for you to elect Mr. Reese to an office where he may use his influence and his vote for the election of a good and true man to the United States Senate in place of G. W. Jones. WM. LUYOY is known to most of us. He was i6clared UNITED STATES SENATOR. Of the matters which will devolve upon the next legislature, not the least is the election of United States Senator The vote of this county may fix the political complexion of the legislature. If we elect our ticket we may secure a Republican Senator—one wnose voice shall ring with Harlan's through the Council Chambers of the Nation, in behalf of free soil, free homes and free men: if we permit our opponents t6 triumph in this county, we may lose the Senator and be misrepresented and disgraced for another six years by Senator Jones. The vote of a Senator from Iowa, may make another Slave State this we are determined to pre vent, if it can be prevented by consti tutional means. We do not design nor wish to war against the rights of Slave States with slavery where it now ex ists in the States, we have nothing to do yet we understand the Republican Party to be opposed to the aumission 'of any more States, with the ivithcr iny, blighling, damning leprosy of slavery engrafted upon its constitution. That Iowa may be represented with these views and purposes—that she sustain her republican chaiacter abroad, by a continued Republican, Administra- Permit us to a.ik, if thia mensnre if snch vital importance will be Sitfe in fhe hands of its enemies? Can it be e.T peeted tliat a Party who oppnged he adi]»tion of flic Constitution Oociinge^of regulated Banking system Will man who is a member of a private Banking or Broker's office be a suitable person to represent you in the Legisla ture when this important measure comes up C-\n it be cxpectc 1 that any man will yield a hearty support or assent to a law depriving him of the means of pursuing his ordiiary vocation? Is a party who are opposed to a great prin ciple, the proper parly to reduce that principle to a system, and create a Banking Law? It' not, then vote the Republican ticket, and let the friends of this measure enact the iuw. Other important measures will come before the next legiblataro but we have not the space to refer to them here. Any one who peruses the new Constitution, will at once see wh tt tfcey arc, and will foel the necessity of elect ing good and sound Republicans to the Legislature. Permit ua to call your attention to one or two points presen ted in the present canvass ui' a national character— SLAVERY EXTENSION. Upon this point, we wish to quote from tho Democratic Platform of 1856, to show what was then the popular idea upon this subject: "The American Democracy recog- u u to be the unanimous choice of the Republicans of Cedar and ftjuscatine Counties in their Convention at Wilton. Honest, capable, and an unflinching Republican, onr interests i"n his hand.* will be safe. Let this suf fice as to our candidates but let us not forget that great and to us vital interests are at stake, and call upon us, as we value our Country, our freedom and our religion, to put forth our utmost exertions for the success of our ticket. it therefrom The whole question was to be left to the "Squatter Sovereigns7' to regulate in their own way. The Democratic party contendc that the people of the territories could either admit or exclude it that slavery did not exist in the territories, and could not until by legal enactment it was permitted Squatter Sovereignty was then the great Demo cratic idea the orators and papers of that party denied that slavery did then, or could in future'exist there, until the people inhabiting the territories legal ized it. JVoiv, a new interpretation has been given. It originated in South Carolina and Virginia. It was sent by these Southern masters to their time-serving vassals at the North, who all at once discover that Squatter Sovereignty is a humbug, and is not Di mocrafic In order to manufacture a neic Democratic principle, they get fspoor negro in Missouri fDrcd Scott) to sne for his freedom. They raise the ques tion of jurisdiction the United States Supreme Court decide this question, and then for^he purpose of manufac turing this.DCW principle, and national izing the institution of slavery, thev step aside from the issue presented, ana decide that the "Missouri Compro mise" and the "Ordinance of 1787" were both unconstitutional! Nor is this all. Fearing that some might not understand what this principle was, the Chief Magistrate of this Nation, elected under the Squatter Sovereignty idea, over his own hand makes the foilotting declaration: BUCHANAN ON SQUATTER S0Vr EREIGNTY IN 1857. "Slavery existed at that period (the passage'of the organic law,) and still exists in Kansas under the Consfi tution of the United States. This point has at least been finally decided Dy the highest Tribunal known to our "laws. How it could ever have, been seriously doubted is a mystery Seeletter to Prof. Silliman and others.) When Texas was admitted, the sub ject of slavery was under discussion in the United States Senate, and James Buchanan was then in favor of the ex tension of the Compromise through Texas. He made a speech upon the question, and in that speech reminded the Senate of the agitation this question had caused both North and South re minded them of the fact that the Union had been in danger, and that Congress, by the passage of the Missouri Com promise, had settled this question upon a basis that was just to all parties, and he says: BUCHANAN IN 1814. "Upon this Compromise he had ta ken his stand, and there he would "let the question rest forever.

The 8otrthern masters of tho North have compelled the whole party, including thu President, to stultify themselves, and the Suprt-nie Court of the Country has been cuiupel- letl to mitke it»e!f appear ridiculous, by its banking clause, will fufor a well i ra^mK a point not, legnllj bet'orw it ui order to sustain i-nikiLg party. The spectacle is humiliating,-y«t it is a sluNbt.-rn fa«t! All the Acts of Congress her^fore had—tkll tho decis ions of the Courts heretofore uiadu— and all the received opiuioLM of all the Statesmen of our country, are declared have been unconstitutional, and the Rcpubii ,-i u is called a sectional party because it docs not subscribe to the doctrine* revealed under tho light of the New Dispensation! To-day we ave a sectional party be cause we deuy that slavery exists in the territories of the United States, by vir tue of the Constitution. Yesterday we were a sectional party because we would nut subscribe to site doctrine of Modern Squatter Sovereignty, and it will oou t»e true democracy to allow tho slave owner V) go into any of tho States of this Union, and hold Ids slaves there by virtue of this same Constitution, and cur opposition to such propagandise of the curse of slavery will still be met by tho cry of "Sectionalism." But wo caunoi enlarge. Wo ask you, Republicaas of Muscatine County, if you are willing to subscribe to this new doctrine? Are you willing to sc« our whole country prostituted to the embrace \f slavery If not, go to the polls, and see to it, that the WIK le strength of tho Republicau party in your neighborhood is mustered to the support of the ticket on election day. Art you willing to see the United States Senate longer disgraced by G. W. Jones? Are you willing that the euemiea of free soil and free homes should longer triumph, or be allowed to retard the administration of our State in that Act Let us gather it from the Government under the now constitution? words of the act itself J£ not, exert yourselves for the success "Z? being the. express intention of into these territories, or to cucludt 0f thin aet neither to legislate Slavt ry eouuty. the Republicau ticket iu Muscatine Let every Republican do his duty, and all will be well. If we bat put forth our full strength, the election of Parvin, Reece and Lundy is certain and with their election, we will give to R. P. Lowe, our former ftllow-ciii*en, a majority suthcieut to entitle our county to rank among the certain Re publican counties of the State. ORIE.Y'f\ lL TO O Til- WASH.
