edition. "Whether it resulted tirom the hot
weather, the ink, or papir, eripariially from
' all three, we have not been able to determine.,
but shall do lo, an 'endeavor to remedy the
evil. Nothing is more ; provoking to a Printer,
' than having hit-paper work badly .T The paper
which we now use, is inferior in quality we
1 know, lo that we Bsed heretofore, but, it costs
us more money than the other did, and a the

raised their prices of subscription,' in view of

Again, we are called upon to record the
- death of one of our most enterprising citizens

Dixon township, on Friday evening last, after
a short illrrrss, of a complication of digests.

Dayton, Inst week, and a number of cases oc-

Surely they do not mean to let the elec

walk leisurely over the course ! What theii is
the matter t llasthe Free Soiiers placed them
in their present position, and are they afraid
lo make norninatiQiia, leu the "third party,"

used to call together the, legions of Whiggery
in other days, and rally them in solid phalans

chosen leaders? Echo asks wiir.Rs; ! Where.,
are the principles, in the maintaiaaoce of

Whig State Ticket? Where i their County

is their plntfoim t All gone; gone ! gone for

of "fution," and iu some of thestrongest whig
counties, as in this, they have rio existence or

once knew the whig party, wi I know it no
more forever, and it will be forgotten, except
upon the pages of the poli'ical history ofour

giving a little galvanic life and animation to
rutu:e fanatical opinions, springing; up Tor a'
dayto agitate the country, and then passing
imo oblivion. In reviewing the history of the
whig party, its rise, progress, and fall, we
cannot but be impressed with the troth that,
no psr.ty can exist for any length of time in
this country, unless its principles are strictly
national! No organization jon live, and pan
der to all the sectional interests which may
spring up. No party can embrace all the isms
of the time and survive. In gathering in al1
kinds, of ever7 faith and opinion, too much
explosive matter isaccurrulai'ed, and although
for a season the latent fires may be smothered
yet they must a a natural consequenee ex
plode, and blow the party or body containing
them, "tlcy high!" So it has been with the'
whig party. So it will be with any party which
pursues a similar course. The Democracy, by
tefusing at all 1 mes to "uf," ,hd (landing
upon national principles, has outridden all op
position, and will continue to be triumphant,
whenever the sober second thought prevails,
so long as nntionnlily marks the conduct of its
renresenia'.ives end its course, of policy. , We
trust in God that the democratic party may al
ways remain true lo the country and ,ils own
future. Republican and American in princi
ple, the democratic par.y must in the future,
as it has in the past, prove the salvation of
this countiy and guide its onward and up
ward course in prosperity. We hold that no
true American enn beanylbing else than
democrat ! Republicanism and democracy
are twin brothers, and no man horn-in this free
and haopy country, can be I rue Id his. birth
place and Ins birth-right, unless lie is true
his country and her institutions'. No man who
has chosen this land as his home, can be true
to himself and the interests pf his adopted
country, unless he supports the genius ofour
institutions, and in so doing, as a natural con
sequence lie becomes a democrat and true
American. We hold '.hot the democratic par
ty is the only true American parly, the proTes
sinn of all others tothe contrary noiwi'.hsiand-
ing. You might as well call a (f'e'polism
republic, as to attempt to administers Repub
lican form of government, npon any 'Other
than democratic princinles. We stand upon
i he broad pla'fprmof democracy, and with
the banner of true Americanism Hosting over
us in the breeze, shall ever be f una ailvoea

ests ofour country. We say "our country,

at Chicago t Douons was refused "free
ipeeck" by a rowdy mob, aud latterly Gov.
Willasd, of lnd ana, was repulsed in like
manner, -fret tpeeeh?' indeed! . Such pes
tilent hypocrites are much better entitled to a
frt pillry I . ... ' .
The Chicag V Times says of Gov. Wit.uap,
The moment he attempted to show that the
Nebraska and Kausaa aot was framed pu ely
upon that prin iple, the same disorderly gang
of Abolitionist rowdies who, the week before
hud insulted Judge Douglas, as if by concert,
commenced biaying, bleating, groaning,, yel
ling and hooting. lSese elegant performan
ces, woicn evidently were most natural to
those engaged in them, were relieved of their
monotony by such cries as "That's a lie,"
"You get down," "Kick him- out,1
him up," "Kub his head with a brick," cel.,
each of these choice remarks elioiling from Hi
rowdies hurrahs, stamping of feet, and other
marks oi approbation.
What kind of a people have they in that
city, that tfuch infamous conduct should be
toleratsd a eecond time ? Have the National
Democracy there no spirit, no respect for city
'or self courage? The Ohio river would (loot
very soon with such stinking garbage, should
an attempt like that ever be mule in Cincinnati.

Going to Kansas.
Three hundred freemen, from Marsachnxetls
and Ntw York, passed through Albany, a few
days ago.on their way toKansas;and from ma
ny other quarters we hear of like movements
Kansasand Nebraska are rapidly filling np with
an enterprising, industrious class of men from
the Northern States, who take wiib ibem all
the implements of farming, as well as type and
printing presses, to spread intelligence over
the new territor es. The Abolition fanatics
don't like these movements of the people, as
they clearly prove that all the stories in itla-
lion to Kansas and Nebraska going to be Slave
States, are silly falsehoods, circulated . for the
sole purpose of keeping alive abolitionism and
fanaticism. -'

behind, and so one of the Indians, a Minnee--

ate it up. The Mormans 'then went to the
fort and reported that the Indjana. had killed
one or their cowa. On the 19tb, about 2
o'clock in the afternoon, Lieut: Grattan, with,
a command of twenty -bbvco- soldier, and
