The True Issue. : The Democrats of the South fn tie pres ent canvass cannot rely on the old grounds of defence and excuse for slavery; for they teet not merily to retain, it tehere it is, hit to extend it into regions 'where it is vn lnown. Much hss can they rely on the mere coiistitutiohai 'guarantees of slavery", for such reliance is pregnant with he ad mission that slavery is wrong, and but for the constitution should be abolished; ' The constntional argument" Tor slavery, stand ing alone fully justifies the abolitionists. They are clearly right if slavery is moral ly wrong, for "to get " rid of it tinder the constitution, or by amehding the constrtti tion, . is confessedly . impracticable. In truth the Constitution cannot help slavery, if it be a violation of the laws of God and morality; In that case the con stitution should be changed, or the free States should secede, rather than continue to guaranty what they consider immoral and profane; ... The constitution cannot help slavery for another reason: That ih-stitntior,- extending through fifteen States, and interrnmified with the interests, the feelings and the very existence of many millions of inen is much stronger than the constitution. It would be far easier to change Or -violate the constitution, than to abolish slavery. Besides slavery is older than the constitution, existed before it, aud independently of it. We derive no right to our slaves . from it ' and weaken -.our cause by seeming to rely on it : Nor will - it avail us aught to bIiow that the negro is most happy and best suited in the condition of slavery; If we stop there, we weaken our cause by the very argument hit ended to adtance it; for we propose to introduce into new territory human beings whom we assert to he unfit for liberty, self-government, and equal as sociation witlt other men.. We must go step furllter. - We must show that Afri can slavery is a moral, religious, natural, and probably, in general, a necessary in stitution of slavery.' This is the only line of arawnent that will enable southern Democrats to maintain the doctrines of State equality and Slavery extention. - For if slavery be not alegitimate, useful, moral, and expedient institution, we cannot without reproof of conscience and the blush of shame, seek to extend itor assert our equality with those Elates 'having no such institution. ' - :' - Northern Dh'mdcrols rieed hot go thus far; Thiy-do not seek to extend Slavery, but only agree to its extension, as matter of right on mirparL : They may prefer their own social system to - ours. It is best that tliey should. Our friends are con servatives at home, and conservatives of the Union conservatives of religion, of marriage, of property, of State institutions, and federal intitutiou. But whilst they may prefer their - own social system, they will have to admit in this canvass that ours is also tigldfid and legitimate, and sanc tioned alike by the opinions and usages of mankind, and by the authority and express injunctions of .Scripture. They cannot consistently maintain : that slavery is im moral, inexpedient and profane, and yet continue to submit to its extension; ' We know that we ntter bold truths. But the. time has now arrived when their utterance can be rid longer postponed. The true issue should stand out so boldly and clearly that none may mistake it. . Pennsylvania for Fremont. The Washington Organ, tho "authora- tive exponent" of principles of the Fill more party, m its issue' of Monday last, contains an article, reviewing Mr. rill- more's prospects, in which it comes to the following sensible conclusion in regard to result in Pennsyvania and Massachusetts : "In Massachusetts and 1'ennsyvauia things at present look dark and gloomy. It seems now more thftn probable that Fre mont . will carry Pennsylvania, unless the Buchanan men will unite upon f ulniore, sc it is supposed that State pride will prevent them from doing this," even hi tie w "of the now obvious truth, that there is no other mode of saving Pennsylvania from Fremont It will be for the Democracy of Pennsyl vania to decide betweeh Fillmore "and Fre mont A few days will enable us to make more definite calculations as to Massacba- setts. Three or four days ago we believed Fillmore Would carry Massachusetts; bnt the course of fcioveruor tiardner and his friends renders the condition of political affairs there more uncertain than they were, and we can only hope for the best in that btate Tho Organ says that the mformation oft which its conclusions are based is from "re liable sources," and wo have no doubt of it, The gaiue'the Democrats here are trying to play to save the State from Fremont is to effect a union with the Fillmore men, while the only hope of the latter party at Wash ington to obtain a similar result is to effect a union with the Democrats. This unwil ling admission from the Orgaii goes to cbnfirm onr previously oppressed opinion, that the friends of Buchariaii and Fillmore intend to play a bold game Mich will open the eyes of those who now think "Fillmore is as safe for Free Kansas as Fremont" Tho wires nre already laid, and the nigger drivers at the South will soon begin to pull them.- Ijook out for "startling develop ments" at homo and abroad!

Herald says i Upon Kansas, our modern niggerized democracy, from Mr. Buchanan at Wheats land, and Mr. Toombs in the United States Senate, down to all the little organs and stump orators of the party throughout the country, are proclaiming that "Fremont is a sectional candidate," and that "his elec tion will and ought to be the end of the Union;" How sectional ? Is his position in favor of Ksnsas as a free State in any de gree more sectional than the position of Mr. Buchanan in behalf of the admission of Kansas as a slave State f . But we are told that in lis election fifteen States of the Union will be ignored. How so ? The ans wer, is, 'Look at tho South not even a Fremont electoral ticket in any Southern State, excepting Kentucky." But we ask again, Why not ? And we are answered." Because the Fremont abolition parly dare not attempt it they would . be lynched, tarred and feathered, or hung up on the first tree, or drummed out of the State; and. they know it" Admitting all this to be irhe, we cannot see that it proves Fremont to be more a sectional candidate than Buchanan. On the other hand, We think it shows the boot to be upon the other leg; aud that tlie present Buchanan party of the South is seriously the most ultra and deplorably sectional party that lias ever existed among us Mr. Cobn of Georgia, and Mr. Senator Benjamin of Louisiana, forexample-both slave holders, we believe,- and both in favor of the election of Buchanan and the admission of Kansas as a slave. State, and both in favor of seces sion and revolution in tlie event of Fre mont's election have just been enlighten enihg the people of Maine on democratic principles, and on the sectionalism of Fre mont and his masses of northern supporters. Mr. Cobb and Mr. Benjamin are free to go and speak in this way, in every hole and corner of the North- free to yilii y Fremont, his party, his platform,- his supporters,. and free to preach secession as the democratic alternative should the will of the people be against Buchanan ; but how is it down in Georgia or Louisiana! Very likely if a Northern man in Savannah were to mount the stump for Fremont he would be stop ped by the fighting "democracy" of the place, as Mr. Brooks stopped the mouth of Mr; oumner in ine cscnaie cnamoer; ana very likely,, if Mr, Cobb were present he would not interpose to save the audacious intruder from the vengeance of his fellow citizens. - And as with Mr. Cobb, so with Mr. Benjamin. Is not this, then, the real sectional party tin's ultra-despotic, and sectional democracy of the South, which, upon Kaiisas affairs throughout the South, seals the month and the press of the oppos ition at the peril of Lynch law ? .
