LETTER OF GOV.
On the Approaching Election of President,
and the Candidates.
NEW YORK CITY, Sept. 23, 1856.
To tiu Editors ofiht Evening Post:
Gextlkves : The letter of your corres
pondent, H., and your editorial comments
upon it of the 16th inst," seem in common
courtesy to demand a reply- Your corres
pondent does not err in saying that I de
sire the success of the Republican party
and the election of their candidate, and
that I am ready to contribute any honora
ble effort to briug it about. This is not
the result of any preference as to men, but
in spite of it. With Colonel Fremont I
am unacquainted. -'I have never seen him,
nor had any communication -with him di
rect or indirect, verbal or written. On the
other hand, my feelings of friendship fhid
admiration of Mr. Buchanan, as a man,
are ' of no ordinary character, and are
strengthened by years of friendly intimacy
and reciprocal acts of kindness, uninter
rupted to this time by a single misunder
standing or unpleasant : feeling; aud 1
would at any time defend him promptly
and . indignantly against personal, attacks
upon his reputation. " I believe him to be
a man af distinguished ability, of high in
tegrity and valuable experience.He is
6urrounded,too, in Pennsylvania, by many
political friends, whom, persojuilly, I love
and esteem, and to whom 1 am united by
ties long cherished political and social in
timacy, and the loss of whose friendship I
should regard as' a great -calamity. For
more than a quarter of a century I have
steadily labored with the Democratic par
tr, and never doubted that I should do so
during my life. For years I have exerted
myself to bring . about Mr. Buchanan's
nomination. In 1848 and 1852 I was
one of those w ho carried, for him the dele
gates of our district, and was his zealous
and ardent supporter. On each occasion 1
was in the National Convention as one of
These ties are exceedingly strong and
hard to cover especially with one who is
naturally of conservative cast, and slow to
change old habits of thought and action ;
and I have resisted for months the convic
tions that were urging me to my present
declaration. I Lave diligently sought rea
sons and arguments to save myself the pain
of breaking up old associations and alienat
ing myself from my old friends, but all in
vain. .. My love of country and hatred of op
pression would not allow my. feelings and
inclinations either to delude my judgment
or suU my conscience, and 1 am compelled
to forfeit my self Tcspect by cpmmiting
what I believe to be palpably wrong,
of else to enroll myself in. opposition lo the
Democratic party. , -r. ti
I can see no reasonable hope of justice
and sympathy for the people of Kansas, in
the success of the Democracy. In its rank
and with the power to control its actionj
are found the Border Ruffians of Missouri
and their accomplices of the South, who
have trampled upon the Constitution and
all the essential principles of our Govern
ment, robbed Kansas of its civil liberty and
right of suffrage,- laid waste its territory
with fire and sword, and Repudiated even
civilization itself, . ... .
' In its platform I find the enunciation of
principles which would put the rope about
the necks of men, for exercising .the Con
stitutional right of petitioning Congress for
a State Government, as a redress for griev
ances far worse than those which led to
the war of the Revolution, and a ' declara
tion stigmatising as "armed resistance to
law," the moderate and justifiable, self, de
fence of men shamefully and infamously
oppressed by ruffian violence and outrage,
beyond all human endurance.
I find the whole party of the nation as
sembled in National Convention, with but
one individual dissent, expressing its., "nn
' qualified admiration" of an Administration
which has lent itself as the tool and accom
plice of the wrong inflicted upon Kansas,
and by its venality and imbecility brought
the country to an intestine war.
I find all its representatives in Congress,
with three individual exceptions, laboring
in earnest zeaL by speech and vote, to cov
er up the iniquties of this administration
and the Border Ruffians of Missouri, and to
surpress a fair investigation . of outrages
which shock both humanity and republi
canism, and defy the Constitution aud the
. I find these same representatives, after
the truth was elicited in spite of their efforts,
still refusing to relieve the people from a
code of laws imposed upon them by a for
eign army, and still refusing to admit them
into the Union, only for reasons which,- in
the cases of nine existing States, had been
declared untenable and of no account.
I find them disregarding a free Consti
tution adopted in a legal, constitutional
and time-sanctioned manner, (and whicli
no man can doubt to have reflected the will
of the people,) and supporting a law to
produce a substitute, which it is easy to
show would nave perpetuated in the btatc
Government the usurpation which had by
force already seized upon the Government
of the Territory. ; ' 1
I find them refusing to make appropria
tions for the army unless that army is to
be used to enforce a code of laws violative,
on their face, of the Constitution; enacted
by a legislature in violation of the law of
the United States, and imposed by foreign
force upon conquered and subjugated Amer
I find them, in a word, steadily . aiding
by all their Congressional action to make a
Slave State in Northern latitudes, and that,
too, against the will of its inhabitants.
I find that one member who more than
iny other stood out against the enslave
ment of his white fellow citizens, is refused
a re-nomination by the Democratic party
of his District.
I find in the canvass now going on that
the whole tone of the party press is in the
same direction. When the first startling
intelligence of the outrages in Kansas reach
ed the States, their editors denounced the
foul wrong in terms of fitting indignation.
Ii was but a spasmodic effort, however, and
in deference to the South and the prevail
ing sentiment of the party, they have drop
ped off, one after the other, until now, so
far as I have been able to ascertain, there
is not a Democratic paper which dares bold
ly to justify and defend the Free State
party, ana denounce me invaders, in place
of encouragement and sympathy for their
outraged fellow-citizens of the North, there
is little else than jeers and ridicule for their
oppressed and suffering condition misrep
resentation of their motives - and conduct,
and a pretended increduality of the state
ments and appeals which they send to their
brethren of the States.
I find their speakers exhibiting the same
spirit some of them ignoring the question
entirely ; others of theiu treating it with
perversions, misrepresentations and false I
issues: and others taking openly the side
of the oppressors; but no one of them ad
vocatmg the cause or Kansas, or lavoing
her admission under the Free State Con
stitution adopted by her people.
In the public demonstrations and two-
cessions of the party, I find banners and de
vices coniainiug brutal insults, in response
to the appeals of that people for protection
against uniwralleled wrongs, calculated, as
no aouDt wiey must be intended, to prepa re
the masses for a continued refusal of jus
lice and protection, aud a relentless persis
tence in ouirnge and oppression.
. I find all the Democratic South, and a
jiortion of the Democracy of the North,
boldly repudiating the Kansas Nebraska
bill, by insisting that Slavery has a right
to go into the Territories, in spite of Cou
gressor the people; and that the inhabi
tants or me lerntory have no right to pass
territorial laws to forbid it or exclude it.
Democratic representatives from Pennsyl
vania even, in the tx'iiale and the House,
hold and proclaim these opinions, while
other rejresentatives from Pennsylvania,
with Democratic leaders from other States,
declare themselves publicly to be non-committal
upon this heresy; the inevitable ten
dency of which, it is easy to show, will be
to prevent almost entirely the formation
of any more Free States. .
Having originated a movement myself,
to aid our people by sending them men
aud money, and having prosecuted it w ith
the strictest avoidance of party' character,
and a studied neutrality as to the political
canvas, and having earnestly asked the co
operation of men of all parties, I have fail
ed to enlist in it, to mv knowledge, a sin
gle Democrat. In the Conventions of
Cleveland and Buffalo, called without' dis
tinction of partv, iu furtherance of this en
terprise, there was no Democrat present but
myself. ' This can uot have been from anv
want of generosity or of means, but only
in deference to the prevailing tone and sen
timent of the party, whicli is enlisted upon
the other side of the question. And not
only have they abstained from aiding the
movement, but in their presses and by their
private influence the v .have endeavored to
cripple and retard it by sneering at it, warn
ing the c immunity against it as treasonable
aud declaring that the money would be
mi:-jip)lied, thus endeavoring to prevent
contributions even from friends of the

enumerate other indications, if necessarv.
showing that the prevailing tune of the par
ly is hostile to Kansas; but 1 consider it
only necessary to add, that what I have
said relates but to the North. , The South,
where the great mass of the party is to be
found, makes uo pretensions, as a whole, to
the advocacy of anything but pure border
ruffianism. What, then, have the Free State men of
Kansas to expect from a Democratic Ad
ministration, even if presided over by Mr.
Buchanan ? If he could be left to act up
on his own impulse, aud free from all pled
ges aud obligations, expressed or implied,
the case would be very different. But un
fortunately, it is not so. His election
would rightfully be considered a decision
agains us, whatever may be his own pri
vate feelings. His office at Washington, in
Kansas, and elsewhere would necessarilv,
to a large extent, be filled with our enemies.
His information would come throuirh a dis
torted medium ; and lastly, he could not
aid us without having first made, up his
mind to - be abandoned and warred
upon by his own party. Iho South
would charge him with violating his pled
ges, and turn upon him with the bitterest
hostility, and at least a portion of the Nor
thern Democracy would follow their exam
ple. He would thus be left w ithout a par
ty to support nis administration unless lie
should cast himself into the arms of the
Republicans. We cannot, it seems to me,
either ask him to do this on a question
where the party lines are so plainly drawn
lefore the election. Like all other men
in the same situation, he must obey the
party sentiment on which he is elected.
ihat there, Democrats in Pennsylvania who
are full of indignation against the conduct
of the South in regard to Kansas, I am
well aware, and that they would use their
influence to redress her wrongs, I am well
satisfied, but they are too few, m propor
tion to the, whole partv, and, of course,
cannot o so hereafter. I honor their
good intentions, but I cannot believe in
I repeat tliat I have been forced to these
conclusions after no slight struggle with
my feelings and inclinat ions. Should Mr.
Buchanan be elected, and his administra
tion be different from what my judgment
compels me to believe, 1 shall give hun
my cordial approbation, and my feeble
though willing support. As I believe now,
I must regard the Democratic party as fullv
committed to Southern sectionalism, to
ward which for some time past, it has been
rapidly tending, and I quit it, well assur
ed that my duty to my country demands
at my hands this sacrifice of jwrsonal feel
ing. Very truly yours,
A. H. REEDER.
Abuse of Gen. Jackson.
The recent publication of an extract of
letter from (jen. Jackson to his friend
Mai. W. B. Lewis, in which Buchanan Is
charged with "want of moral courage in
the affair of the intrigue of Adams and
Clay" has given oecassion to some of the
Democratic Journals to indulge in the
most virulent abuse of the old hero. The
Louisville Courier savs tliat Jackson was
"insanely viudictii'e old tiiranC who
secretly and meanly villified and slandered
IJucliaiian, because the latter would not
perjure himself, aud sustain him (Jackson)

The old line Jackson Demociats should see
to it, thai the old chiefs fame is vindica
ted from such assaults as tln-so from ro-
fesscd Democrats. They van do it, f.v nut

charge of "bargain and corruption"

Border Ruffian Outrages upon
Authentic account the Murder of Father
Holland, and the Tarring of the Rev.
Mr. Sellers—Letter from the Latter.
- We have at length obtained a full and
reliable account of the late difficulties in
Rochester, Mo which resulted in the tar-
sing of Rev. W. Sellers, and the shootiug
of Benjamin Holland, an aged aud belov
ed member of the Church. The account
has been delayed till this time by the se
vere sickness of Mr. Sellers, the consequence
mainly of his inhuman treatment: .
Mb. Editoii: At your solicitation,
herein transmit to vou, for the benefit
your readers, a plain statement of the facts
connected witu the recent mob iu Roches
ter, as they came under my own observa
I had appointed Saturday, June 14th, to
commence a scries of meetings in Roches
ter, Missouri, and had written to" several
ministers to come and assist me. On
Wednesday or Thursday previous, a pro
slavery man by the name of Sims, was shot
by a free soil man (one Hardesty) because
Sims attempted to drive him from his
home or. kill him. J arrived, ju Rochester
on Thursday, at 12 xi'clock. Soon aft
mv arrival, I was waited upon in Mr.
Stm-k's store, by a committee of three in
dividuals, who said they were ; authorized
by the citizens of Rochester and vicinity to
instruct me not to preach again in Roches
ter, and endeavored by threatening to ex
tort a promise from me to that effect; de
claring at the same time that this Jortn
ern Methodist preaching would not be tol
erated in the country. I asked them for
a few names of the citizens who hail given
them this authority ; they had no names
ro give, . I then asked if thev claimed to
le American citizens. ' Thev said I was
fool, f ml had better promise not to preach
again ill Rochester. I told them I would
not make that promise: that I was cuiltv
of no crime, had violated no law, and would
oliey God rather than man. I asked them,
what rights or privileges they claimed as
American citizens bv virtue of theircitizen-
ship, that were superior to other Americen
citizens. . At tins remark, without givm
mo an answer, they left the store muttering
that force would be used in order to stop
me. - ; -. - -

the countrv, and after attending to that
important dutv, on Saturday morning,
started for Rochester, for the puqxwe of
Morning my meeting at me lime appointed.
As we rode into town, we observed grotqjs
ot meu collected at the comers of the streets
engaged in conversation. .- The excitement
appeared to bo general. I rode through
the village to Mr. Strock's stable . to put
up my horse, and Mr. Holland, w ho was
iu company with me, went immediately in
to Mr. Strock's 6tore. I came into the
state of ten or fifteen minutes, and found
several of my Rochester friends and some
trora the country who had come to attend
the meeting. Old Mr. Holland (a sainted
martvr now,) was standing near the front
door. One of the leaders, with several oth
ers of the mob, . were standing near Mr.
Holland and myself, having in their hands
a bite number of the Wistern Christian
Advocate, containing the report of the ma
jority of the Commtttee on Slavery in the
Creneral Conference. . 1 totd them how
that matter was adjusted, but all to no pur
pose; we were Abolitionists still and
must promise not to preaclt, or else be
mobbed. I said I would not do it. About
this time the mob began to collect in feont
of the door. . 1 suppose there were seven
ty-five or one hundred of them, some from
Platte county, some from Buchanan, some
from Savannah, and others from the vicin
ity of Rochester. Some were armed with
revolvers,: others had knives and clubs,
while others had picked up stones in the
streets. One fellow cried out- uIfhe hall
me out of the slorr he would soon kill
uie.n At that remark, one fellow got me
by the arm and drew mc to the door.-
lhree others then came to his assistance,
and seizing hold of each arm and leg, they
carried me to the middle of the street
where they haulted, raving, cursing and
yelling like a hotly of savages who had res
cued a prisoner. ...
While this was transpiring, Mr. Holland
was shot, the ball sinking him on ttiechin.
parsing through and breaking his neck.
He expired in about thirtg minutes. I af
terwards understood that Mr. Stroek was
shot also, the ball cutting off his cloth
and grazing the skin on his side. They
also shot at Mr. Beattie and missed him ;
and he-then knocked two or three of them
down and escaped at the back door. These
noble brethren stood with me m the bat
tle, till they were driven from their posts
V lule in the street the mob had a con
sultation over me, as to the nature of the
puuishment I should receive from them, as
the embodiment of civil power, and the
self-constituted guardians of society, for
thus attempting to preach Jesus and the
resurrectiou under the bannar of freedom.
Some said, "cut his threat;" others,
'scalp him;" others, "shoot him in the
head." At last they concluded to tar me.
They then carried me across the street, be
tween another store and warehouse, to a
tar barrel which was sunk iu the ground.
and throwing me down on my back with
considerable violence, hskl me there, while
they 'consulted as to the manner m which
the tar should be applied. Some said put.
hun in head foremost ; others were for strip
ping me. One fellow swore they could not
agree, and he would shoot me. lie aimed
revolver at mv head, but another wrench
ed it from him, exclaiming, "don't shoot
him, we will give him what we think ho
deserves." At last thev concluded to do
the work without stripping me. After
searching me to sec whether I w as armed
or not, anil fiuding I had uo anus conceal
ed about my person, they commenced put
ting on the tar with a broad paddle. Af
ter completely saturating my hair, they
jave my eyes, ears, lace and neck, each n
plastering. I had on a black coat, satin
vest, and black cloth pantaloons.
They furred my cravat, my shirt bosom,
and my clothes dow n to my feet. They
H-i jne u.(-
I was so sore I could scarcely stand on
my fret, but oh ! the agony of my eyes.
They appeared like balls of, fire, mid I
thought they would burst out of my head.
Although it was noon, and the hot sun
was bcnining down on my head, I grouped
my way as at midnight. After I arose to
my feet, one fellow said, "he has one min
ute to leave town;" another said, "ho can
have five minutes, and if ho is not gone in
that time he shall be shot," 1 groped niy
way into the street, they followed mo w ith
th eir revolvers cocked, telling me to stop
the peril of my life. I was in so much
misery, I knew not where I was going. I
could see objects, but cotdd not distinguish
one from another.
i i -
By this time I got across the street be
tween Mr. Strock's store and stable," the
tar had melted some, and I conld distin
guish between males ami females. Here
were the fenuila members of a flock
Rochester, over whom I felt the "Holy
Ghost had made mo an overseer," some of
whom had ventured . out in the midst of
this mob to rescue their pastor from their
bloody clutches. Some had fainted, others
were erving aiid wringing their hands
excessive grief. I thought of the patriotic
women of the revolution, and that their
daughters still lived, to lend a helping hand
to suffering humnnitv,' I found mv horse
in the yard with the bridle on, and with
assistance I got the sapdle on, and started
to go to some place as quickly as possibl
to get the tar washed out of mv ever. '
The mob followed nio, however, turned
me back, and made me go towards Savan
nah. As 1 passed out of the town, 1 prov
identially met Mr. Chamberlain and his
wife who were cimiing to meeting (I hoie
he will write and tell vou how they served
him.) When I came up to them, they
did uot know me. After I told them w h:
had been done to me, Mr. C. asked me if
I thought I could stand it to go to his
father-m-law's, a distance of twelve miles.
I told him I thought I could not endure
such a trip, but was willing to try it. We
rode as fast as we conld, not knowing that
the mob was in pursuit of us. hen w
turned off from the main Savannah road
to go to Mr. Miller's they wera not more
than fifteen minutes behind us. After rid
ing so far in the hot sun, in mv condition,
I was nearly dead, when we arrived, but
through the attention of Mr. Chamberlain,
and mv kind friends at Mr. Miller's, " in
few days I partially recovered from the in
juries received. : May thev receive a thou
sand fold in this life and m the world to
come, life everlasting.
These, Mr. Editor are facts, for which
hold myself accountable, and for which I
exject to answer at the bar of God. May
Gxl take care of the scattered flock, and
finally bring us all to Heaven.

The occasion was attendrd with most dis
graceful circumstances. A South Bend
corresM)ndent of the N. Y. Tribune, writ

A very turbulent spirit was manifested
on the part of the "Border Ruffian Democ
racy" at an early hour. Anon, a couple of
their leaders went over to the railroad now
in course of construction, and collected
some two or three hundred Irish laborers,
who armed themselyes with bludgeons, nnd
proceeded to the sm-aking ground. Intim
idated by the suiwrior number of the Re
publicans, these miscreants committed no
assoult of note till the meeting was at an
end and the people began to disperse. Af
ter the Plvmouth Delegation, consisting of
forty-two wagons filled with Republican
voters, left, the mob, led on by one David
and Doctor somebody, attacked a wagon.
dragged men, .women and children out of
it, and beat them most unmercifully. One
man in the wagon fired several pistol shots
in defence, but without serious etlect. A
Republican seeing the dangerous condition
of his friend, ran from a house nearby, and
with a revolver is said to have shot three
Irishmen dead and wounded some others.
The Ruffians then attacked the Marshal of
a delegation and dragged him from his
horse; but he escaped and took refuge in
a house. The mob followed him, and hav
ing driven the family into the street with
clubs and stones, made search for the Mar
shal, and finding him concealed beneath
bed, assaulted him with an ax, severing
"one ear from his head, an otherwise, though
it is hojied not fatally, injuring him. Iho
infuriated rascalls wound up their fray with
an successful attack upon Mr. Colfax's car
riage, and by knocking down and beating
several women in the streets.
The following day over four hundred
Irishmen encamped near Bourbon with the
avowed lotention of burning the -town.
Two hundred Republicans, well aniied and
