BINGHAM A SIGNER. In the year 1857, an individnl named Hinton Rowan Helper, wlio bud been forced to leave bia native State (North Carolina) in disgrace, published a book, of which he was the repatod author, en titled "The Impending, Crisis." The book recommended direct warfare on Southern society, "be the consequences what they; might." i .It was so extrava gant in tone, and bo diabolical in its de signs",: that it was at Brst geuerally sup posed to be the work of a fool or a mad maoi x No one could believe that any satre or civilized person really entertain ed any such devilish purposes as it pro fessed. What, however, was the sur priseof the public when the book was actually adopted by the Republican par ty as a campaign document, and Its atrocious principles endorsed by SIXTY-EIGHT Republican members ol Congress and all the influential mem bers of the party I Below will be found an abstract of the principles it advoca ted, taken from the large editiou of the work, published by A.

Slaveholders are uuiaances, aud it is our imperative duty to abate nuiminoes; we propose .to Exterminate Sluvery, tbau which mrych nine itself is less a nuisance. 1'aob 139. 8. Slaveholders are. more criminal than Cora mon murderers. Paoh 140. . 7. All slaveholders are uader the shield of perpetual liceuse to murder. Paub 141. 8. It is our honest eonviction that all the pro-slavery slaveholders, who are alone re sponsible for the oontiuuance of the baneful Institution among us, deserve to be ut once re duced to a parallel with the basest criuiiunls that lie fettered withiu the cells of our public prisons. Paos 168. 9. We're it possible that the whole number (of slaveholders) could be gathered together nd, transferred into four equal gangs of li censed robbers, raffiung, thieves and murder era, society, we feel (insured, would suffer less from their atrocities than it does uoir. Pace 158. 10. Onto and forever, at least so far as this country is concerned, the infernal question of slavery must be disposed of. - A speedy and absolute abolishment of the whole system is the true policy of the South, this iB the policy which we propose to pursue 1'aub 121. 11. Slaveholders, it is for you to decide whether we are to have justice peaceably or by violence, for whatever oonsequenoe niay follow, we are determined to have it, one wuy or the other.

Such is the reunrdl We now ask, in ull candor, whether thesu men, tie lead ers of the Republican Parly, who en dorsed and circulated the above book, are not morally, before High Heaven, responsible for the revolution aud bloodshed which hits followed? If they really intended to carry out their threat euded designs, when they got Into pow er, then every man cun see why the South took such steps as she thought would insure her safety. If they did not in tend to carry out these threats, they aro nonetheless responsible, for they con vinced and alarmed the South that tbey did intend to carry them out. There is, therefore, ho escape for "them as be ing justly and mainly responsible for.our present civil war. Will any one dare to assert that these men are not the lend ers of the Republican party? Look ov er the names and see whether nearly all are not high priests at present in the party now engaged in carrying out the very programme to which they pleged themselves? The author of this atro cious book now holds a position under Mr. Lincolu's administration! W. H Seward, who dcclured it a work of "great merit," is Mr. Liucoln's Secretary of State; L. Clephane, of Washington, another endorser, is Postmaster of that city; C. A. Peabody, of Now York, js now Judge of Mr. Lincoln's Courts in New Orleans; David Dudley Field and Curtis Noyes, broke up till. Peace Con vention; Abram Wakeman, another en don-er, is rewarded wi'h the position of Postmaster of New York. A number are still members of Congress. Some are really 6ghting to carry out their princi ples 8 tbey would, like Frank Blair of Missouri, and S. R. Curtis, of Iowa. Most of them, however, are content to bold civil positions, & spend their time in coaxing or drafting Democrats to do the fighting. Yet ak, in one way or other are vigorously at work to make good their assertion: "Wo have deter mined to abolish slavery, and so h lp us God, abolish it we will." Can the people be any longer deceived as to who aro justly responsible, before God, for our present horrible fratricidal and . de vastating negro equality, civil war, and all the consequences that htt7e followed in its train .- Mrs. "Govern in cu t" mid Sun al Wlrttc Mountains.

" The Democratic party relies upon the people at the ballot boxes to redress po litical grievances. . . The Abolition party resorts to bayo nets, and military. Intimidation at the ballot boxes: ' " The Democratic party believe that the Constitution should be adhered to strietly in time of peace or war. The Abolition party believes that the Constitution should be disregarded if their party is in power, and the Admin istration of their choice deems it "ne cessary" to set .it aside. the Democratic party believe in the great constitutional right of the habeas corpus, as a' shield to tb. eitizeus, against an awful arrest, and that Con- grans alone can suspend it iu time of in sumection or invasion. ' . . i -.-. i The Abolition party believe that this right should not be regarded if their President sees fit to suppress it.- The Democratic party believe that the civ, I law is superior to the military. The Abolition party believe that the military power it superior to the civil power. . i " The Democratic party are. opposod to military arrests "without duo process of law," where tho courts are unobstructed.-': . i - . .i The Abolition pnrty aro iu favor of all such. .... The' Democratic party believe that the States are sovereigu in all political power which they have not delegated to the Federal Government. The Abolitionists centralize power in tho Federal Government and sanction acts which subvert tho rights of the States and suppress tho liberties of the people. The Democrats believe that thcLViou can be maintained only upou tho prin ciples of the Constitution upon which it was based but when all the States are not admitted us equals in the Union, the Union itself caunot stand, . The Abolitionists propose that a por tion of the States shall dictate to anoth er as to the State institutions that shall exist withiu their jurisdiction, and hold that a portiou of the Stales should be dependencies to the more uumerous aud more powerful States. The Democrats hold that secession and rebellion are hostile to the Cousti tulion, aud wickedly in violation of the pledged faith of the State; and that the Constitution, and the laws in pursuance thereof, shall be maintained in ALL the States of the Union. The Abolitionists go much further, and hold that the laws under tbe Con stitution the Fugitive Slave Law and others shall noi be maintained, but destroyed by armed forces thut tbo President's word or order shall overrido Cousti tution and law, and destroy not only provisions of tho Constitution, but Slate laws and State institutions. The Uuion as it was, they will nor have. No Uuion with slave-holders is their cry. The people should judgo which set of principles are the best, iu peace or in war, and which party is tho most likely to save the Union. A Good Story from Judge La tig. Judge Lang, of Seneca couutyywus among the speakers at the Democratic meeting iu Sidney. The Shelby Demo crat says: "Judge Lang, of TilBu, followed Mr.. Pugu. The Judge said the Republican party came into power by accident, and illustrated the present condition of our distracted country, lie told of Yankee brothers who resided iu Cbeesedom, aud who lived on wbittliug sticks and wood ed uutmegs.

Tbe stars were in a circle, symbolizing the perpetunity of the Uuion, the ring like tbe circling ser pent of the Egyptians, signifying eter nity. Tbe thirteen stripes showed, with the Btars, the number of the United Col onies, and denoted the subordination of the States to the Uuion, as well as equal ity among themselves. The whole was the blending of the various flags previous to tbe Union flag, Viz: the red flag of the armies aud tbe white of floating but teries. The red color, which iu the Roman day, was the! signal of defiance, denote daring, the blue, fidelity and the white purity."

But a short distance from here can be seen tho perfect skele ton of a large sized man. The bare skull, with its great, hollow, eyeless soekets, was there; the long finger bones and each particular rib was in its place. All was bare, white andgastly. No; I forgot to mention that a well preserved pair of boots still encased what were the soldier's feet, but iu whose friendly cover now rattled the skiu bones of the deceasod.

How a Frenchman Got Even. A tall Yankee was riding a diiniuutive specimen of the donkey tribe through the muddy streets of Gotham; and the animal being very stubborn, Jonathan found it quite difficult to accelerate his pace. He used the persuasive eloqueuce of a hickory stick, and at each blow be would drawl out, "Git up, Bonypart! git up, I say!" A little Frenchman, iu passing, heard with rage the name of his'fttustrious countryman applied to the u'gl beast, and commenced heaping a volley of abuse on tbe head of the of fendind Yankee, "iair," shouted the Gaul, "Suir, vat for you call that ugly beast Napoleon I Sair, I shall have ze grande satisfaction. " "Git up, Bony part !"! was tha buly response. "Sair, mousieur! I say vat for you call that vagabond horse Napoleon?" "Git up, Buny-part!" Here tho Frenchman's rage boiled over, and stamping his feet upon the pavement, he screamed out: "0, by gar! I shall havo dcr revenge. I have oue mean little sheepish dog at home! I go call him Guillaume Wash ington, by gar!" A colored servant sweeping out a bachelor's room, found a sixpence on the carpet which be carried to the own er.
