"JFhereas, The political parties of the nation have nominated their candidates for the President and Vice President, to ffether with a platform of principles by which they severally aspire to control the neneral government it Decnmcsnur amy in the exercise of our inalienable rights to determine which of them are entitled to our suffrages. And Whereas, The Democratic parly has made the extention of Slavery the paramount object of government, and de ny the right of Congress to prevent the extention into the territories ; and in do ing this they have departed from the prin ciples and practice of George Washing ton who signed a bill to prevent the ex tention of slavery into the north wesiern territory ; they have departed from the principles and practice of Thomas Jeffer son who fraiadd the above bill, and as President signed several similar ones. - They have departed from the princi ples and practice of Jmes Monroe, An drew Jackson, r.nd James K. Polk, who - in their executive capacity signed bills to prevent the extention of slavery ; They hate departed from the estab- lished practice of the general government during the first sixty years of its exis tence. And they and James Buchanan of 1856 have departed from the principled of James Buchanan of 1819, whofhen de clared that 4 those members of Congress who opposed the extention, of slaery, ' were entitled to the wannest thanks of ' every friend ol humanity.' ' And in making these departures they have undone the work of the greatest statesmen of the past generation, in the - repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and have brought the nation into sectional strife and civil war ; ' And Whtreas, The American party re fused to take issue on (his question, which is being foiced upon the nation, and thus by failing to interfere they tacit ly acquiesce in the extention of Sla very; " And Whereat, the principles announ ced by ' the Philadelphia Coiiven ion which nominated John 0. Fiemont and Win. L. Dayton, accord with the princi ples of the founders of oui Govorninent. arid if adopted, will tend to reatore ihe - whole uation to that state ol peace ami prosperity from which we have fallen : j therefore we declare, , ,1.. That we will give our hearty sup- port to the nominee of tl;s Republican . party. 2 That Slavery is a local institution and can only exist will in tl e limits of those States whose laws legalize it. ' 3 That in accordance with the estab lished practice of our government from its first organization until the year 1848, Congress has the power to prohibit the extension of slavery. 4. That in the language of Daniel Webster, we will 'under no circumstan ces consent to the lurther extension of the area of Slavery in the United States 'or to the further increase of Slave rep-! rcseutation in the House ol Kepreeenu .lives.: ; 6. That the citizens of die whole Union should be admitted into the terri tories upon an equal footing, and that no citizen when in a territory should exer cise any rights derived from the State from which he came, that are at variance w ill: tne rights common to all. . . 6. That we deny the right of Congress , to interfere with any of the Stales in re gard to ibe 4 peculiar institutions of the biate, and that the rights of the States and the Union of the States, must and shall be preserved. , .. , . 7. Tuat we recrgnixe -no geographical divisions, no local interests, no narrow sectional prejudices, ihai the rights priv ileges and liberties that we demand as our inheritance, we concede to be ' the inheritance of all the citizens of this Re public.

That we will maintain those great rights ' which the constitution declares inviolable, freedom of speech, and of the presa, the free exercise of religious belief, and the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government "for redress ol grievances. : V t 1 After tlie adoption of the resolutions a fetter from Hon.

MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS, JOHN WADDLE, Of Ross County. Oat of their Own Mouths, ft will be recollected that shortly be fore the adjournment of Congress, Sena tor Bigler, who is regarded as master fugleman of the Buchanan party in Penn sylvania, and confidential and advisory friend of their candidate, offered a res olution, in the Senate, calling on the Pres ident for information touching the accounts of Cul. Fremont with the Government, and undeniably for the purpose of casting suspicion upon his integrity, and for none other. From the same source slanderous reports have also been put in ciiculalion, unsupported by any proof whatever. Apropos of the mailer, we have an affi davit of no less a personage than Mr. James Buchanan himself, a copy of which las been recently procured from the Re cords of London. In the year 1852, when Col. Fremont was in Loudon, he was arrested at the suit of Gibbs and others, on certain Bills of Exchange which he had drawn upon the Secretary of Slate, while acting as Governor of California. Mr. Buchanan was at that time Secretary of Slate. The Bills were not paid at maturity by the Government for the reason that, not hav ing been anticipated by Congress, no ap propriation had been made lo meet them. A commission issued out of the Court of Exchequer to three gentlemen in Phila delphia to take testimony in the case, James Buchanan, in the course of his examination, says : " Col. F reinont, the defendant, was in California at the commencement of hos tilities between the United States and the ReDublic of Mexico ; he there raised aud commanded a battalion of California vol unteers, consisting of about four hundred men. His services were very valuable ; he bore a conspicuous part in the conquest of California, and, in my opinion, is belter entitled to be called the conqueror of California than any other man." As to the supplies we hear so much about, he says : " I do know that such supplies were necessary for the forces under tbe com n.and of the defendant, (Col. Fremont) and that no appropriation had been made by Congress to pay for these supplies. Congress could not have anticipated that tol. ireinont would raise a California ba'.ialion bv li is own personal exertions and wuhuut previous instructions." And, as a tribute to the integrity of Col, Fremont, he states further, that he would have accepted and paid these bills from his general knowledge of the trans actions in California, had Congress ap proprialed any money and placed it at his disposal which could be applied to their paymeut. And while we are indulging in remin iscences we will give the opinion of the Charleston (8. C.) Mercury relative to merits of our candidate. In the number of that Journal for September 24lh, 1847, we liud the following : " The marked and brilliant career of Col. Fremont has arrested general atten tion and admiration, and has been watch ed with lively interest by his fellow ciii xeus of South Carolina. , Charleston, particularly, is proud of hiiu ; and . the reputation which he has at so early an age achieved for himself, she claims as something in which the loo has a share." The above taken in connection with the present unmeasured abuse so unspar ingly heaped; not only upon the fair fame and character of CoL Fremont, but upon the memory of the dead his virtuous, j Intelligent Bnd beloved mother preaents ' the miserable mendacity and detestible and calumnioue conduct of that sheet in a most unenviable and damning light. The "Plain Dealer " oa Buchanan . The following extract from one of the leadinsf Democratic papers in Ohio, hows the atandingof Buchanan, in that party only five years ago. . Nothing is more certain than that Jamea Btchanan is the tool of the South. Mi a hard dose for the Democrats of the North to awal low... Read, and see their consistency The small and malignant clique who wear the name ot James Buchanan on their collars, are endeavoring to sell the Democraoy of Pennsylvania, into the hands of South Carolina traitors. James Buchanan never was elected by the peo ple to any office, except when he was a Federalist. He has not one drop of Democratic feeling about his cold-blooded batchelor hed 'rt. He could not receive the votes of one third of the people for any office. And yet by the force of man agemerd, of the basest kind of political machinery, he has been ablfli for years past, to crush the democratic party of this State (Pennsylvania) lo hang about its neck like a mill-stone, to kill every professional thought iu its bosom. He and his tools virtually gave the State to Taylor in 1848, and if Bigler is defeated a good and noble man fou may charge it to James Buchanan, wlo like the old man in the history of Sinpad the sailor, now hangs on Bigler's neek.

We have some fifteen hundred dollars marked on our books against about five hundred persons resid ing in this and other States. Now, two or three dollars is but a small amount, and we presume there are many who think it a matter of no importance that they should be prompt in sending so small a sum. But look at it! Five hun dred subscribers reasoning in that way, while the editor is compelled to either raise from thirty to forty dollars every week, or suspend the publication of his paper. For six or eight months we have not said anytning upon this subject, and hence onr subscribers seem to take it for granted that we are publishing a paper as a mere mailer of recreation.

Mrs. Elizabeth Barrett, widow of the lamented John Barrett, Sr., departed this life, on the 4th inst , at the house of her daughter, in' Wells Township, Jeffer son County, Ohio, in the 80th year of her age. Mother Birrett had ihe misfortune to lose her eyesight some yeais before her death, which was a great deprivation. She died of dropsy from which she suff ered very much for some lime before her death. But she bore all these grevious afflictions with great patience and Christ ian fortitude, trusting in the Savior of the word for a final deliverance from them all. Her remains were followed on the next day by the surviving Iriends and a large and lesteciable procession ol sympathiz ing neighbors and acquaintances to the family cemetery, on the farm where her hutbaiid and herself first settled wben they came to the State of Ohio in the year 160 1 . A very appropriate discourse was delivered on the occasion by Kev Mr. Quillin, of Wellsburg, Va.

SPEECH 01 EON. JOHN If. B0TTS. The Richmond Enquirer, a few week ago, contained the following characteris tic editorials in regard to Hon. John M. Botu' Speech. Some people might be induced to think that such sentiments as these of the Enquirer, were only for Bun comb, only intended to be understood in a ' Pickwickian ' sense, but such we can assure thern, is not the case. If they had the power to. put down free Speech: they would certainly enforce it. They can find no be iter materia than Bolts to begiu with, ... '" ' :' - t ' v ' ,;i Mr. Bolls can be convicted of Black Republicanism on the evidence of his own declaration, in the speech which he recently delivered, and if Botts is not ar rested on the act for the suppression of incendiary language, the law is either a dead letter, or our prosecuting attorneys are not tiuet their duties.' What was the incendiary language that excited the Enquirer! The fullowiug extracts are among the most incendiary. Read them ; they won't hurt any onei , . ' I charge upon the Democratic party -that by the disturbai.ee of the Missouri Compromise they have not only sacrifi ced the integrity and honor of the Souih pledged in good faith to the Missouri Compromise, but which violated after they had received from it all the benefit they could derive. I charge upon the Democratic party that they have violated every pkdge that was made in the Con vention that nominated Mr. Pierce to resist any and all efforts, no matter when, where, or by whom made iu Congress or out of it, to re-open the agitation of the Slavery question. . , And I charge them with exciting a rev olutionary and rebellious spirit throughout the limits of this broad land and that hav ing taken possession of the Government when all was peace, they., have brought us to that point when threats of dissolu tion are heard in every quarter of ; the land. And now they come, as I said be fore, with that old deceptive syren song of Help us save the Union." " The Union cannot be saved except by the Democratic party." .They have had a Convention at Cincinnati, and they have fully endorsed the policy and measures of Mr. Pierce's Administration, that has produced civil war, (hat has sacrificed all the Territory of the United S ates to tbe eause of Free Soilers, and that has brought about a condition of things iu which Disunion is openly threatened in a great er or less degree in every Congressional District through ihe United States. They have put their candidate, Mr. Buchanan, upon the Platform, and he tells you that he stands not only upou that Platform, but that he is no longer James Buchanan, but merely the candidate of the Democrat ic parly. ( Cheers and laughter. ) Well, now, I want to know if the Democratic parly can accomplish all this from the 4th of March 1856, how much longer it wo'd lake them to bring about, a dissolution of the Union. (Laughter.) They've ac complished more than three fourths of their task already. Lei this policy be pui sutul but a little longer, and the Union is gone ; if anything can dissolve the ond of this Conleueracy, it will be anoth er Administration of the Democratic par ly. Of the Chivalry of the Hon. Pres ton S. Brooks, Mr. Bolls disposes thus : I have one word to say in regard to the Brooks affair, and it is only because have ieferred to it before a Northern au dience that I choose now iu the presence of a Southern audience, to repeat my en tire and absolute condemnation of the at tack made upou the Senator from Massa chuseits. If my own brother had acted ' as Mr. Brooks did (in the discharge of a solemn public duty, whatever might havo been my personal feelings) 1 sho d have voted for his expulsion. Mr. Bolts concludes his speech like true patriot as follows : With regard to the frequent threats of disunion, let me say, the Union is in no danger of a dissolution. There are but two ways of dissolving ihe Union : one is by revolution and force, which the strong arm of the general government will always be able to suppress ; aud the oili er is, by a convention of the Slates that adopted the constitution and framed the government of their choice. Newspaper editors and cross road'politicians have no power to dissolve, and there is now, and always will be. good sense enough among the conservative elements of ihe country now engaged in their daily avocations and busy operatives in the workshop, in the field, in tbe lactones, and in every pursuit of life, not heeding or caring for the cry of ' wolf I wolf!' with which the cars have become familiarized, but who will, when occasion calls for it, rise .'up in their mighty strength and trample un der fool ihes noisy, in'ucheviuu ' Dial contents, who make night hideous1 with their yells ol disunion ; and let me tel them, that when they attempt it for no better cause than it has yet been threaten ed. I fot one, will meet them at ' Phillip pi, and on that field they will find me kneeling at no other altar than that of the Union, worshipping at -no oilier shrine than the shrine of the Constitution, and fighting under no other (lag than the stars and stripes of the United States. Tut' Declaration of Independence Unconstitutional. Mr. Breckenridge, the Democratic candidate for Vice Presi dent, in a speech recently delivered in Ohio, made use of this language : Look at the principles of this party (the Republican). Listen to the ignominy and reviling which they combine to hurl on your sister Slates. We are told that the Declaration of Independence is em bodied in the Constitution of the United Slates ! The Declaration it an abstrac tion. Put it into the Coristiiution and what would follow I It would follow that the Constitution must protect every man in his right to ' life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness I' . You would find it interfering with the institu tions of the States, and it would lead our country rapidly to destruction,. But why do I calculate upon what it would da t Long before this our Union would be obliterated forever. It would become as Intolerable and hateful n : jta past hat been beneficial and glorious. .

As an evidence of his ability to enforce the laws, he told them he had juBt anested 90 or 100 outlaws, .who would be properly tried by the legal au thorities. In view of these facts, the Governor urged tlie Missourians to dis band, and abandon their projected attempt on Lawrence. . Gen. Atchison. Gen. Reid and Col. Titus, addressed the meeting and urged compliance with the Governor's proposal. I he Governor then withdrew from the conference to afford the Mi'sourans an opportunity to act among themselves on his suggestion, A meeting was instantly organized bv calling Gen. Atchison to the chair. Resolutions were passed declaring that, relying on the pro ection promised to peaceable setllers bv the. Governor, they, the invading army, would disband and return to their homes requesting the Governor to organize and distribute over the Territory a force of militis to protect the settlers from marauders and robbers and recommended that Col. Titus be made commander of ihe militia of the Territo ry. The Missourians then broke up camp and returned home, except those who intended to settle in the 1 erritory. The ninety or one hiindied men arrested by Gov, Geary, belonged lo ihe company of Col. Harvey, who made the attaek on Capi. Robertson, at Hickory Point. They were captured at Grasshopper Mills, op posite Lcconipion, on their return from Hickory Point to Lawrence. Il is said thai in the attempt lo arrest ti em, one U.
