JOIIX A. 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. B Burbick, No
145,. Nassau street, N. Y., 1860, aud
also the names of their endorsers, &.:
: THg PBOOPAMMB. . ,
1. We unhesitatingly deolaro ourselves in
favor of the immediate and unconditional ab
olition of slavery. Pack lit!.
2. We cannot be too hasty in carrying out
oui designs. I'auu 83.
3. No man can be a true patriot without
first becoming an Abolitionist. Paub 1 10.
4. Againstslavcholdcrs, as a body, we (that
is, the Kepubltcansiguera and endorsers) wage
an Extermination War. 1'aub 120.
5. 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. P aob 128.

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

Tue Two Parties.
There Is a wide difference between
the two parties."' 1 ' "". "
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

"Judge Lang, of TilBu, followed Mr..

distracted country, lie told of Yankee
brothers who resided iu Cbeesedom, aud
who lived on wbittliug sticks and wood

tired of living iu this way, and uot con

So he went on

and wound up bis letter by saying, "but

Language ol the American Flag.
The following explanation of the col
ors and symbolic meaning of the "Stars
and Stripes," was written by a member
of tbe old Continental Qougress to whom
with others, was committed the duty of
selectiug a Aug for tbejluftiut confedera
cy: -I
"Tbe stars of the new flag represent
the new 'constellation of States rising in
tho West. The idei was taken from
the coutellatioQ Lyra, which in the hand
of Orpheus signifies harmony Tho blue
in the field was tul ea from the ed jos
of the Covenanter's bauner in Scotland,
significant of the league covenant of the
Uuited Colonics against oppression, in
volving tbe virtues of vigilance, perse
verance and justice. . 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."
Armies of the Dead. -
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Press writes from New Brandy Station,
Va., under dale of Ang, 6th:
Last night I slopt upon historic
ground. The white bones of those who
had beeu slain before gave forth a gast
ly gleam when the soft moonlight shim
mered down upon tbem through tho
heavy foliage. 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. Tbo wayward wiuds played
through the cavity of the chest, and sigh
ed through the empty skull, iwhich gave
forth a loug, melancholy wail the on

The Trials of a Poor Young Man.
BY SYLVANUS CORX COBB. .
It was moonlight, aud the heavens
were gorgeously bespangled with twink
ling stars. A young man of. twenty
three wag leaning over the verandah of
i a boautiful cottage, musing intently on
the beloved object of. big adoration,
whilst a pair of strange cats were makiog
melody up a dark alley.
Time rolled on an Lour perhaps
and the young man changed his position
from a standing to a eittiug posture,
and in meditation sweet he gazed upon
everything about him.
Ezekiel, for that was his name, was
tbe only sou of poor but tiishonest pa
rents. From tho humble position of a
rag-picker he bad risen by perseverance,
and was chosen by the people for road
supervisor. Ail example, indeed, was
this, to the rising generation.
'"Zekel is that yon V were the first
words that fell upon his ear, and it
seemed that at last his mind was iu deep
trouble, for he saw that he ranst answer.
"Yes, it is me," and bis lips quivered
as he replied.
"Where have you been?" continued
the crinolinio being, tbe music of whose
silvery voice bad just aroused him from
his Bober thoughts.
"To a party, my (hie) dear, wnere I
(hie) have been indulging iu "
"Groat heaveus," cried Minerva, aud
the goddess of wisdom sobbed bitterly
over what 6he considered the inevitable
ruin of Ezekiel.
"Never (hie) mind, 'Nerva. Time,
iu his (hio) eventful march, will (hie)
iuaa n aii.mcrilit,"
II.
For nearly an hour nothing was said.
Ezekiel's intestines were evidently ip
deep convulsion, and hie face red ifjth
the anguish of his troubled Spirits.
The cats up the alley had left, andUfa
ture, in the rapturous glory of her still
ness, afforded solace to such as worship
at the shrine of Cupid.
"Ezekiel, you know you are doing
wrong, aud ruining your prosp "
"All but (hit) that. Tell me (hie)
that again, (hie) and I'll never (hie)
lead thee to the (hie) nltar." This he
told her more in anger thin in sorrow,
for bis bowels of compassion bad not
yet operated.
'"Zekiel 1 'Zckicl ! is it possible, that
after giving me a two-cent orange as a
testimony of your fidelity, we are bound
to part forever!" and out of her apron
pocket she drew a dilapidated towel, and
wiped away her tears.
"Yes," cried Ezekiel, "for thou art
(hie) false to me iu adversity. Tboo

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

A short time after he missed his gold
pencil-case, and inquired of bis servant
if be bad seen it.
"Yes, sir," was the reply. -
"And wliat did yon do with it?" "..
"Kept it for my honesty, sir." . ' .
The old bachelor disappeared., ' '
