The Senate of the Uni ted States, in which the Democracy are largely in the majority, have for six weeks past, spent their time in fixing up a platform for their par ty to stand upon during the coming Presiden tial campaign. Two different platforms were introduced and debated. Neither of them know any North. ' The resolutions .of Mr. Davis, which were adopted,' in substance, deny that the United States " constitute a nation,-or that we have or can have, under the Federal Constitution, any such thing as a common inter act, or national policy They set up the State lines as fixed and impassable barriers, within which the political, moral, religious sympathies of their respective citizens are to be strictly con fined. They denounce, as a violation of the Federal Constitution, any interest which may be taken by citizens of one State is meliorating the laws and institutiots of another.; The Va- ion was formed, if we are to accept the doctrine of these resolutions, not with a' view to mutual aid and assistance in the gradual improvement of our institutions,' and the transmission from State to State of the fruits of knowledge and experience, but solely for the purpose of keep ing the States, so far as their domestic institu tions are concerned, in a perfectly isolated, and not only In an isolated, but in a stationary con dition.' The Union according to this account of it, was intended not to make us a united, but to keep us a divided people. It aimed at raising barriers in the way of assimilation. Whatever existed was consecrated by it. The States are represented as having solemnly cov enanted together not merely to protect each oth er against the overthrow by force of their exist ing institutions, but as having mutually agreed that their respective citizens should refrain from any criticism, whether based on political, mor al, or religious ideas, upon anything which any State might see fit to tolerate or establish. An amendment was offered by Mr. Hablan, that these resolutions should not be understood as intended to interfere with free discussion, free speech and the freedom of the press, which amendment was voted down. . 5The expectation of our political oppo nents that Mr. Seward, and manv of his friends throughout the State of New York, would refuse to support Mr. Likoolx, are early being disap pointed. The Republican press of that State, without a single exception that we have heard of, are giving him an earnest support, and Mr. Seward himself has written a letter to some friends in which he expresses the hope that no feeling of personal friendship for him, will pre vent them from giving "Old Abe" the support he merits at the hands of every lover of "free homes and free speech."

THE NEWS. The United States practice ship Plymouth sails from Annapolis on the 20th of next month, with one hundred and thirty midshipmen on board, and about half her usual quota of sail ors,, as the -youngsters will be called upon to manage the ship. The cruise will embrace Ma deira, the Azores, Cape Yerde, Cherbourg, Brest, Cadiz, and such Mediterranean ports as the three month's' cruise will allow-. , t , ... We copy the following from the Washington correspondence of the Philadelphia Ledger:, "We have very . dcided evidence of the tact that the whole South is more determined now than ever to insist, at the adjourned. Baltimore Conven tion; upon a plain and explicit and equivocal declaration that they have an equal right to go into the! Territories Vith their property, and that the right shall be protected, when necessa ry, by all the branches of the general govern ment. There can be no trifling, and indeed no compromise on this subject between the South ern and the Northern Demoracy." . About a month ago, the wife of Mr. Jesse Harbor, of Concord township.

Most of his children we be lieve, are living and doing well. . . j On Wednesday night of last week a little house just out of town,, on the road to Wat'cr ville, -Lccas county, occupied by a colored man and his three children was burned to the ground with all the poor man's; goods. - His youngest child, a bright little girl about 7 years old was also burned to death before any assistance could reach her.

The Struggle in Italy. long cherished idea -.of undivided Italy appears now -to bo near realization. The Pope, illustrating the ancient proverb that "those whom the gods wish lo destroy they first make mad, Jias marched his army towards the Tuscan frontier, whilst the army .of Piedmont and Central Italy is advancing eagerly to meet tha Papal hirelings. ; As the French troops have been ordered to evacuate Rome, it is easy to see what the result of the struggle will be. The temporal power of the Pope is totter ing to its fall. , I . .A 1 .. ' ' From Naples andSicily the news is of. a yet more startling character. .In spite of the prophecies of a failure and inevitable destruction, Garibaldi succeeded in land ing at and capturing the fortified town of Marsala, on the west coast of Sicily, His presence 6eems to have been the signal of a general effort on the part of the patriots, for the accounts brought . by the Arabia state that all the island, except the forti: fled cities of Palermo on the Northwest, and Messina on the .jiast.at once came under his command, -and tljathe was march ing rapidly on Pfllroero. , , . '; The news of .his success created a panic among the governing classes at .Naples. The Royal family and the, royalist - nobili ty immediately proceeded to pack .up for sudejen flight.

Cltvelani flerali. , . ; Union Support of Lincoln and Hamlin. The wisdom of the action of tie Chica go Convention in the construction of a platform, and in the. selection of candi dates, is now everywhere acknowledged, outside of the demoralized democracy. The Democrats still feel sore under tbeir disappointment,' and would gladly change the . Republican standard-bearers if they could. , Their big guns for the campaign are spiked, and the ammunition for person al assaults stored away is useless. ' Allsections of the Opposition to Demo cratic misrule are harmonized in the free States. This fact is particularly gratify ing' in The States "commonly classed as doubtful.' InNewYrk; the leading Fill ' more journals lave hoisted" the names of Lincoln; and Hamlin. -. In New Jersey the .Opposition is a qnit foi the ticket, ' and it is announced that Mr. Day tun will take the stump for it. In Conneticut a like una nimity prevails, and the Bell and Everett move has no vitality. In Rhode Island the Bell ticket has few supporters! A Providence correspondent of the'N.Y. Times says "there is hardly a mau in the Stale professing Republicanism, that does not now heartily welcome the nominations. A large portion of the Sprague Conserva tives rejoice over the selection of "Honest Abe" as the ' Republican'. standard-bearer, while they repudiate Seward as too radical to lead the masses. ..n., ,. - . The People's Party of Pennsylvania hail the nominations with delight, 'and promise an earnest and victorious support,: -and the friends of Mr. Cameron are enthusiastic in the cause of Lincoln. Indiana and Illinois also present an united front of the Oppo sition for Lincoln and Hamlin, and tne prestige of victory in both States- is-with the Republicans. - n From Illinois, the home of Lincoln, the reports are J most encouraging. : ' The Chi cago Press learns from -all parts of the btale that the men who supported x1 ill- more in 1856, "are making all convenient haste to give in their adhesion to the Chi cago nominations," and says "the probabil ities are that no Bell and Everett electoral ticket will be run in this State: and - that nine out of every ten of the Fillmore men of 1856 will come up heartily, earnestly, honestly and patriotically to Honest Old Abe s support. ; . There is a general joining ef hands for a change in the administration of the Gen eral Government. - Democracy has been tried and found wanting. Agitation, sec tionalism, profligacy, bankruptcy, filibus tering, neglect of manufactures, of harbor and river improvements, and a general rec reancy to the principles of freedom upon which this government- is founded, thus the integrity of the Union in .

The po sition of the country and the signs of the times portend, au uprising of the people and a grand and much needed political rev olution.; Roll, on the ball! -Leader. How Democrats Receive the Nomination of Mr. Lincoln. .There is a terrible panic in the Demo- cratiVcamp. ; The nomination of :Mri Lin coln at Chicago- is almost universally Ac knowledged to be the very strongest-that could possibly nave been made,' and : tne danger that threatens ther overthow next November of the Democratic rule at Wash ington is "regarded as ' imminent. - "The nomination of Mr. Lincoln is a strong one," says the Boston. Herald, a rampant Dem ocratic sheet of the Donglas school, '-and will be' difficult to- defeat. .Those who natter themselves that the Democrats are to walk over the Presidential course with ease,' will find themselves mistaken." "There will be a great excitement through out the land," says that organ of aristo cratic Democracy, the N. Y. Journal of Commerce, in evident alarm, "and 'wig wams' will be built now as log cabins were in 1840. . "In Mr. Lincoln they have pre sented a gentleman who will poll very nearly every vole in the Republican party,'-' says the N. Y Sunday Times, another ex ponent of Democracy,, which warns its par ty that their day is up uuless they imme diately quit quarreling and unite firmly for the great contest. "The nomination of Mr. Lincoln at Chicago is a formida ble one probaly more so than would be that of any other man who had been nam ed in connection with it," says that rankest of negro-driving sheets, the N. -Y. .Day Book. "The nomination of Lincoln and Hamlin will be received with immense en thusiasm in .the West, - where they can hardly fail to make a clean sweep," echoes the N. Y. Sunday Atlas,, another . expo nent of the Democratic pro-slavery creed. "Lincoln is a man net to be dspised," cries the Rochester Advertiser, with an ap peal to arms to its Democratic soldiers. Tho Louisville Democrat, Douglas, pro nounces the nomination of Lincoln at Chi cago the strongest bis party could have made, and says, "we have regarded Lin coln since ,1858, as their available man. j i Douglas has not met as nearly his match in debate, whether in ar gument or tact, as he did .when he met Abraham Lincoln in debate .in his own S:atei ,. . It is plain that this ticket is not to be easily beaten, and it is idle to undervalue its strength." The Louisville Vourier, which is a Guehib , paper does not see in Mr. Lincoln's- nominations, an argument in favor of. taking Douglas at Baltimore) but declares that ; "his nomina tion by the- Baltimore Convention . could only result in the -. defeat fr of . bis. party .'f It justly says of Lincoln. ,that v"he ;will probaly unite the strength fit Sewabd and Bates, and with, less qualifications -for President than either( be is the most for midable candidate his party could have se lected.", '; ! '. . .... - It is thus that the conviction is every where' spreading aud taking root in the minds of all, Democrats aud Republicans alike, that "Honest Old Abe? is to be' our next President. So mote it be. r ; We re joice at' the prospect before us of better for our country under the high-minded and freedom-loving auspices of his Republican rule. Cleveland Leader. . , Jt-The New York Sun (Democratic) recognizes the quality and fitness of Liu poln. whose nomination it admits is a strong opt i It shys :' ' . r.) Mr. Lincoln is peculiarly a "self-made, self-educnted man, and is, in all respects, a sterling representative of the "go ahead". American ' character.- That he would if elected,' make a good President', we do not entertain a doubt ' His chances of election certainly ar good, -unless- the Democrats show more wisdom at Baltimore than they did at Charleston." - The people are tired of being ruled by. professional politicians, and they would rather vote for a man like Mr. .Lincoln,' who holds, in a measure, an independent 'position, than for an old party leader, who has friends to reward and ene mies to pupish. Mr. Benjamin's Speech—Douglas doomed. The telegraph state! that one million and a half copies of the speech of Sena tor Benjamin, of Louisiana, were subscribed for by Senators for circulation. The special dispatch to the Tribune thus speaks of it: "Read and inwardly digest," if you can, Mr. Douglas Democrat: The ablest, clearest, and most forcible speech yet made against Mr. Douglas, his doctrine and position, was delivered by Mr. Benjamin in the Senate to day. ' It was free from all violence, and. therefore the more effective. Every proposition 'was fairly slated, fortified by fact, and worked to a common conclusion, which put Mr. Deuglas in open rebellion lo his party, and in direct antagonism to the principles he had heretofore avowed. He announced one extraordinary fact which, though well known before, had never been frankly ad mitted. ... Both wings or the Democracy agreed in a caucus of the Senate in 1857, that each should maintain its particular theory be fore the public one side sustaining Squat ter Sovereignty, and the other, protection to Slavery in the Territories, but pledging themselves to abide by the decision of the Supreme Court, whatever, it might be. This is the manner in which the people North and South have been deceived into the support of the Democracy, by pro mulgating doctrines adapted to both, and yet hostile to each other. ; Mr. Benjamin proved by the record what question they agreed to submit to the Court, and how it had been decided, read ing from the opinion of Justice Tanney to sustain his argument. He said that up to 1857 he had always regarded Mr. Douglas as one of those Democrats North ' who were entitled to the favor and affection of the South, and he had so commended him to the people of Louisana. Since then he had wandered off, and no longer .'de served the confidence which had been re posed in him, and was separated from the South forever. " '. ' ' V In reviewing "the position of Messrs.' Lin coln and Douglas in the Illinois Canvass, he said the former had consistently and manfully maintained the' principles which he had then asserted and was rewarded by his present distinction; while Mr. Doug las had been abandoned. In tbis connec tion he admitted, that after a careful ex animation of Mr. Lincoln's speeches, he was constrained to regard him as far more conservative than be had been represented to be. ' One of the most effective poiuts of his speech was a comparison of extracts from Mr. Lincoln s speeches with citations from Mr. Dougla's article in Harper's Magazine, lo demonstrate that the latter had used the arguments and language of the former, to vindicate his own position and justify him self witn tlie south. ' Nothing so effective has been witnessed for a long lime, and Mr. Dougla's presence was alone wanting to make it overwhelm in". Mr. Pugh replied sharply, saying that Mr. Douglas' friends would stand by him at Baltimore till the 4th of March next, if necessary, - and that the Southern dele gates who seceded has no right to return. This and other demonstrations render Mr. Douglas's nomination at Baltimore almost impossible, or valueless if accomplished by bogus delegates from the South. Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and the btates which did secede, can never ac cept him in the presence of this opposition, and his recent declaration against the com promise resolution they proposed; while those who withdrew will run a Southern candidate if he forced by any combination. In either event, Mr. Lincoln's success is fo be promoted. Whats Up? . The Sergeant-at-Arms' subpoena came to town yesterday and was served upon Mr.- Flood, of the Democrat, and Benjamin Andrews, comanding them to appear forth with betore the Uovode Committee of inves tigation. It is supposed they know some thing important as connected with the es tablishment and. sustenance of the Na tional Democrat of this city in which those who contribute to the National Treasury are interested. Cleveland Herald. . ine . uovoao committee is making searching work, piercing even to the divi ding asunder of the joints and marrow of this detested and corrupt Administration Its latest searcbings have developed the following: I llr. David Webster, of Philadelphia, testified that at the solicitation of Judge Black, Attorney General in Mr. Buchanan's Cabinet, he came lo Washington in rela tion to the giving of the printing- of the Post Office blanks to Mr. Forney, of the Press. This was in 1857- Mr. Webster testified thus: ; -" .- I came to Washington immediately, saw Judge Black, and he expressed great regret at the course Col.' Forney was pursuing on the subject of the then state of anairs in Kansas. He said it was evident that if he persisted in it a breach would follow." be tween him and ' the Administration, and predicted that in that event. Col. Forney's bones would whiten along with Wilmot's on the shore of Black Republicanism ; he wanted Col. lorney to give a pledge through the ' columns of his newspaper that whilst the pending question was fair subject of difference ' as between Demo crats, it was nevertheless, a question to be settled, within the orgaization of the party, and all the good Democrats would abide by the decision of the party on that sub ject. - He wanted him, also, to say,' that under no circumstances did he uol ror ney) intend to become a Black Republican. I asked if Col. Forney could then get the printing of the Post Office blanks, he said, "Yes the whole of it.? The job at' that time was considered by. Col. Forney's friends as worth $80,000. ' I telegraphed over to Col. Forney that I bad a proposi tion which I thought he could honorably accept, and returned immediately lo Phil adelphia As ' Judge Black's ..and my views agreed, 1 advised Col. Jforney to ac cept the proposition. lie indignantly re fused to do so, and directed me to write to Judge Black mat tj a itretime spent tn the Democratic party, and in the advocacy of , its principles, were ' not a sufficient quaranty of his continued adherence lo it, he had lived in vain. ' "" '" ' ' ' M. E. General Conference. BUFFALO, Feb. 29. A vote was tnlcnn in tha Conference this mornintr, on tho first resolution in the ma jority report of the Slavery Committee, which recommends a change of the . Rule in the Discipline of Slavery. The vote stood one hundred and thirty-eight for the resplutien and soventy-four against it lacking ten votes of the required two-thirds ot adopt;' . " Methodist Debate on the Slavery Question. The "irrepressible conflict" has been re moved from the Democratic National Con vention at Charleston to 'the Methodist General Conference - ai Buffalo, on the question of the change of the General Rule on the subject of Slavery. The total num ber 6f petitioners for a change is 45,857. The number who ask that no change may be made is 3,999. Thirty of the Confer ences within the bounds of the General Conference have remonstrated against a change, and the members from the border slave States oppose the proposed change unanimously. - The Conference largely favor it, but it is hardly probable that the required vote can be obtained lo effect a change. . . - The majority report, adopted in the Committee by a vote of 30 to 17, recom mends a change of the present Rule,' so that it shall read as fellows: "The buying, or selling, or holding of men, women, or children, with the inten tion lo use them as slaves." The report also recommends the suspen sion of the 4th restrictive rule, aud the in sertion in tha chapter in regard to slavery ot the folio whig clause : . . , "Strike out all in the chapter on Slavery after the words "evil of slavery," and in sert the following : We believe that the buying, selling, or holding of human beings as chattels is contrary to the laws of God and nature, inconsistent of the Golden Rule, and with that rule of our discipline which requires all who desire to continue among us to "do no harm," and to "avoid evil of every kind." . We therefore admon ish all the preachers and people to keep themselves free from this great evil, and to seek its extirpation by lawful and Chris tian means. The debate on the majority report was opened with spirit on the 22d. Dr. Kings ley, of Cincinnati, moved thai- the first resolution be adopted, and deprecated pro tracted debate. He was willing to let the report speak for the majority of the com mittee before God and the people. The sneeches limited to half an hour each, were earnest and compact. Mr. Coombe, of Philadelphia, opposed the change, stating that all who advocate it are from the free States, and denied that the old Rule was obsojete, as alleged by the minoiily report. The proposed new Rule, which makes slave-holding equally criminal with slave buying or selling, Mr. C. claimed would place the border States in an antagonistic- al and defiant position towards the laws of those States. He cited Maryland, where, after the 4th of June next, emancipation will be impossible. - Mr. Moody, of Cincinnati, followod in support of the report, in a powerful speech Dr. Wilson, of Baltimore, replied for the conservatives, and produced a strong im pression. The Hall is crowded to listen to the able debates, which are continued from day to day. 1 On Thursday Mr. Durbin, of New York, introduced a compromise measure as a sub stitute for both of the reports presented by the Slavery Committee. Instead of establiscing an arbitrary rule with regard to slaveholding, the substitute recommends thai the administration of the Discipline shall be made in each state to conform with the anti-Slavery priuciples of the Church, so far as it is possible under the laws of the is late. Ibe substitute was tabled, yeas 136, nays 83. . The Committee have reported against extending the time lrom two to three years Ministerial service. Cleveland Leader. Is It Pot Calling the Kettle Black. Times and the New York Tribune are ve racious, they, severally, are the most mer cenary of men. Sometime since the Times became "independent" and turned its bat teries against the Republican party ; and, during as the struggle in Illinois, between the gallant Lincoln and the arch enemy of freedom, the Tribune recommended the Republicans of Illinois to desert the cham pion of their principles and elevate Doug las lo the Senate; so that those papers long since came to be suspected and hence since then have been, comparatively, pow erless for evil to the cause of Free Labor. 1 Long before this campaign opened the Tribune commenced to labor in its way for the nomination of Douglas, and to that sheet, more than lo any of their Democratic organs are the enthusiastic Donglas ' men indebted for the strength Douglas displays in the JNortbwest, ' ' Meantime the Times has been like the wind blowing where it listeth and its rea ders have beard the 60und thereof, but could not tell "whence it cometh, nor whi ther it goeth ; only that five days out of the six it was against the 1 nbune. ' well, umo wore on, and the Chicago Convention assembled. ' Greeley claimed a seat from Oregon, and Raymond appear ed as an outsider. - The mission of the for mer was - to defeat Sewards nomination, and by the rule of contraries, that of the latter was to nominate that distinguished statesman. Mr. Seward was defeated and the Tribune "goes" tho ticket; for like cause the Times does not "go" the ticket, but says it waits further developments by tue luenmona and rsaitimore Conventions. Of course these two New -York Editors got by the ears, personally, as soon as they could reach their columns, and each paper, every other day, is largely devoted to criminations and re-criminations. ' ' - Thus far the fight hath this extent. ' Raymond, of the Times, says; that Gree ley's enmity to Mr. Seward dates from the moment Mr. Seward and his friends refused to favor Greeley's aspirations for the Gub ernatorial chair of the Empire State. Greeley, of the lrxbune, retorts by saying that Raymond's devotion to Mr. Seward was actuated by the hope, on the part of Raymond, to secure the sent in the United States Senate, which would be made va cant when Mr. Seward should be elevated te the Presidency., "" , ', . . i .

The North would not submit to dictation from the South as to their ' principles and selection of candidates. ' They would not level themselves in the dust at the bidding of any set of men. ' Mr. Douglas was now the impersonation of Northsrn honor.-;--His enemies had made him greater lhan his friends ever Could., They might , kill him at Baltimore if they chose,' but his friends would carry his bleeding carcass to ibe North-West, and show him to the young men coming to cast their first votes, and tell them' this is the author of ihe Kansas-Nebraska bill, and this is Southern gratitude. ' . Served the Police Right. ' The Police of Washington are as subser vient to' the slave power as the Northern doughfaces in Congress, and when mobs assail Republicanmeetings they only laugh and hoot on. When the nomination of Lincoln and Hamlin was received at Wash ington, the Republicans in and out of Con cress held an impromptu ratification meet ing, and before it was over they were be set by a .Democratic moD, tne Duuaing stoned, windows broken, and the meeting so much interrupted and thwarted that it broke up and dispersed. The police gave the Republicans no sort of protection in the capitol of the United Stales.- '. .. . The House in Committee of the Whole, has since stricken out the usnal appropria tion of $30,000 to the police of Wasbing to City, aud we trust it will stay out. Mr. Stanton of Ohio, Washburn, of Illinois, and others, mnde vigorons speeches against the appropriation, putting their opposition on the distinct ground that the police of Washington will not protect Republicans in the conslitutional right of free speech. Stopping the pay is the very best return for the official neglect of a partizan police. Leader. . . . Political Items. The entire harmony of the Republican nominations is curiously illustrated in the names of the candidates, which are nna grammalhically convertible, thus: . ABRAHAM LIN-COLN; ' the Vice Presidential name being a union link on that of "Honest' Old Abe." The letters also contain Mr. Hamlin's first name Hannibal.- -The Illinois State Journal says that upon the reception of the intelligence of the nomination of Mr. Lincoln, the statue of Mr. Douglas, which has so long adorued ihe handsom jewelry store of Geo. Curran, was quietly boxed up and sent out of town on a freight train. There is a difference of opinion as lo the proper manner of pronouncing . Lin coln's name. Out' in Illinois they . call him uOld Abel Lick-em." Senators Toombs and Benjamin have each delivered along aud pointed speech against Mr. Douglas, the result of which is an attack of Neuralgia thai has- kept bim from his seat. Neuralgia is a convenient institu tion at Washington in ' these perilous times. t' ! " ' ' I r Negro Slavery in Ohio. : Tbat the introduction of negro slavery into the State of Ohio, would not only be acquiesced in, but actually aided, is frank ly avowed by the Ashland Union in an article commendatory of. Yancey's speech before the Democratic Convention at Char leston, in which article the editor of that paper says :!-. t.-;- : ; Few here would desire the introduction of Negro servitude in , Ohio,' at present; but if the African population would crowd npon us in such masses as lo threaten a numerical preponderance, a majority we doubt not, of those who are now Abolition ists and Republicans,- would be the loudest in. their clamor for a reduction of the negroes to servitude, as a measure demand ed by the best interests of both races. Speaking for ourselves alone, and aside', from all party trammels, we do not hosi -tate to express our conviction-allhough no one is responsible for our opinions that African slavery is not only right . in those States aud the Territories where ' it exists, but that it is a matter of such abso lute necessity that its abolition would prove the ruin of both races. In admit ting tbat slavery is repugnant to the law of God and of Nature, and that U can only evist by force of positive law, we have, as Mr. Yancey . says, yielded too MUCH..'.; . . 4 r ' '. Cattle Disease. Governor Banks of Massachusetts has called an extra session of the Legislature to take' measures' to prevent tbe further spread of the cattle plague. The Worces ter Spy of the 25th says that "fears are expressed that the disease may speead in to the State of Maine," aud tbe Portland (Me.) papers say that parties belonging in that city are engaged - in purchasing cheap cattle in . Massachusetts for slaughter in Maine. .. . '. . . - V -:- News Items. : The Pniiiesvillo Press estimates tbe To tatoe crop of Madison township last year at 100,000 bushels. ,. .'
