The tendency of this new political move ment towards Abolitionism, was apparent from the outset to all who reflected upon the char acter of its leaders, and our only wonder is that so-many sensible men, whose affinities are all the other way, were beguiled into the underground, dark lantern project, and in duced to take lite most solemn oaths of fealty to the infamous leaders whose sole ol.jcct is power and place even at the expense of our beloved Union.

The Demociaoy fully sensible of the importance of the result, are organizing with a spirit and zeal, which will render them invincible. They have gone into the contest with a determination becoming tl.eir cause, and are urged on by the 'same patriotic im pulse fell by our revolutionary sires when they were battling for the establishment of those peculiarly American and Cardinal principles of republicanism, which are no ao ruthlessly attacked by a certain parvenu organization, calling itself the American party. The fir.-s of trutbate brightly burning, warmingtheheartsof the people, and by their glair, exposing the hideous deformity of Know Nothingism, and we have now no fears that such an organiza tion can ever triumph, because we believe the Bible is tiue, and know that all its teachings stand in direct antagonism ta the creed of the Know Nothings. It spets of a period when all the scattered tribes of man will be united io one glorious brotherhood, when there shall be no more sin and no more death, and we know that such a period as this can never tr rive while Know Nothingism, in any of its loathsome forms shall find a home among men In view, therefore, of these things, It be comes the Freemen of Preble county to con tinue in action soon the day will come when you will be called to cast your suffrages for men to represent you in the Stale Government The old whig parly, as it existed two years ago, is no more in its place we have Aboli tionism, fanaticism and Know Nothingism, and all other political abomina'ions against which we have labored for many years, and if there ever was a time when the national men of all parties, forgetting their personal preferences and prejudices, should unite upon the common ground of the Constitution, and in defence of all that is dear to every lover of his country, that time is at hand. To the truly national ant patriotic members of the old Whig parry of Preble, who despise and spit upon the "bargain and sale" of their party, by a few aspiring demagogues, we would say, whither will you go in the present crisis f whither will you fly for safety ? how escape the yawning gulf that opens to receive you 1 Or how safe youiselves from being swallowed up in the dark vortex of Know Nothingism, Abolitionism, anil every other foul anJ un seemly ism iu which ihe evil times that have come upon us are piolific, unless you enroll yourselves openly, and without delay, as sol diers in the mighty army of Democratic free men, who in years gone by, jt is true, were your honest political foes, but who are now your best and truest friends.

The Times says : "Arrangements will soon be perfeoted by the K'ow-Nothing State Central Committee, for meetings, at which, in every county in State, speakers will add rest the people."

The Mayor seems lo thiuk that as they are paid by the whole pub their duty is to the whole public and not to party. (P"The Tbjmble papers sre by no means willing to concede that Chase will get more votes than their favorite. Here is what the Cincinnati Times says: "The opinion that Chase stands no chance gaining largely, and s resolution seems lo prevail that Trimble is the mun for the occa sion. We have no doubt of it, and predict by Ihe first of October such will be Ihe general conviction. There will then be a uni versal rally upon old Cincinna'us. Sound poli tical calculators say Chase is already beaten beyond all hope." io of by the the More the Trickery of Chase. The editor of the Sandusky Qennau paper, says the Cincinnati Enquirer, which is support ng Chase, lately published a letter from the Abolition candidate for Governor, in which, notwithstanding the fact that he ia tunning for that office with eight members of the order on the ticket, and that he has' been pronounced "all right" by ita head, Tom SrooNia. he lakes ground against the "dark-lanterg con spiracy." This, ia of course, a mere trick to wheedle and cozen, the naturalized citizens into his support. The Statetntan caused an exact and literal translation of the letter, as published in Ihe German paper, to be made for its columns, wereupon Cham cornea out a follows in the State Journal t "Mount Veknon, September S, 1855. "I have just seen an alleged translation of a translation ol a letter, in the Statesman of Tuesday. It is so grossly garbled (hat il might as well be a forgery. In no letter have I ex pressed any views inconsistent wish what I have constantly declared on Ihe stumo. Will write by mail. S. P. Chase." To this Colonel Medabt thus replies : "Whether the letter is 'grossly grabled' or not is altogether between Mr. Chase and his German editor of Sandusky. We say the let ter, as it appears iu our columns, is a literal translation of Ihe copy published in the Chase paper of Sandusky, the copy is in our pos session, and will be shown to any gentleman who desires to see il.

But we call for the rublicatinn ui mio ungual letier. we snail then see wnetlier Uhose telle the truth, or whether nis tsanuusity friend is a 'forger !"

"We want no new parties no new platforms" (he said)"no new organiza tionsand Ihetioner those dangerous efforts are abandoned, the belter will it be for us, nd those who are to follow us iu this heritage of freedom."

WEST ELKTON, Sept. 7, 1855. MbJCditom That "men and times will change" is an adage, the truth of which is to otvioua, I ha I none for a moment pretend to doubt. But, "that change is not always re form." is an adaee likewise true, which some political demagonues do s fleet to doubt, nd no where in the political world nave we a n.ore clear and happy exemplification of the truth of Ibe above adages, than in the person ol Mr. Chask, the nreseut luaioo csudhlete for Gov ernor of Ohio. And now for the purpose of illustrating, we propose presenting a lew of he phases and political summersets of Sir. Chase, with a brief notice of his present po sition ss a candidate for the high office of Gov ernor of the third State in the Union, to ded icate to his present supporters. A little hnnk thiil thev tMV look unon That they may see their fathers face when ha il dead and gone.

But suddenly Mr. Uiase become sorelv effected with "ennui," his ener gy begsn to grow beautifully less his zeal began to flag, and the brightness of bis fire to decrease, whistlers lan through Ihe ranks of whiggery that Chase was turning traitor. . Trie cause oi tins suauen change using invca tigoted Ihe discovery was mai'e lhat it was ell owing to the neglect with which lhat pony had treated his claims for office, their neglect to dose him vith government pop ! However the whig parly glad to rid themselves ofao useless and troublesome a member, and un willing lo gratify his voracious thirst for of fice, or tickle his palate with emolument, kicked him out of their party. And here in Mr. Chase's life followed s train i f foreboding evils-general lassitude, debility, unremitting languor, and an awful anguishing of spirit, the results of disappointed hope. Suffering under these misfortunes he declared his connections with whiggery forever at an end, and like the estranged Absolom, presuming he had just cause to war against whiggery. Hence he be gan batteling in right good earnest against the principles of lhat party, and against the meas ures that he but a short lime before had to earnestly advocated. Being compelled to re nounce whiggeiy lie apostatized his former faith and declaring il "unholy and unclean," il now became necessary for him, in order to gratify his monomania passions for office, and emolument, lo strike hands with some other party. Accordingly we find him, with many low bows and oblation!- approaching the dem ocratic party, affecting great penitence lor Ins former connection with whiggery and poiuting to 'he more recent anathemas against that par ly to prove that he was a true apostate, a pen itent sinner, asking lhat the "past might be blotled out and rerr.embered no more against him." He began voting and acting with the Democratic party ol Ohio with great zeal and resolution, but failing to have Ins unholy am bition for office gratified, setiug the Demo cratic party repleet, with many better men than himself who had dedicated their lives to Ihe advocacy of its principles, he wisely concluded there was little chance for aspiring sycophants. In that party, and sooner "reign in hell than serve in heaven," he hailed (he Abolition hack then being drove through the country by Lloyd Garrson, and Fred. Douglas, the funner as originator and proprie (or of the line, the latter us hired driver. Mr. Chase seals himself snngly upon the topmost seat and proclaims himself generalissimo, re nnuncing all his former don'.iines and creeds. severing, professedly, all allegiance to all Ihe old parties, and announced liimsetran "Abo litionist," a "Liberty party man." And here, in Mr. Chase's conduct, aa the leader of the Abolition suad of Ohio, we find meanderings turning aud political conmvancts, loo nun.er ous to attempt anything but amassing notice at a lew oi me inusi piumuicm ones, inmgur, bargain, sale, die, connections for sinister pur poies, mark the course of that most extraordi nary man.

A constitution is an instrument or the evidence of a limited agreement which would lose all its qualities of limitation by the admission of construction, snd as a constitution will fail to answer the purposes for which it wss constructed.
