The New Ycrk ifrem’ny Pott supposes
that Chicago alone will be able to supply
the twenty-four millions bushels of icheut
required by England out of our crop of the
current year. Possibly the Pott over esti
mates the surplus winch can be spared by
the farmers who sell their wheat in this
market, by two to five millions of bushels;
hut if it will take into account the fact Eng
land wants twenty-four millions of bread
atuffe, not whcatalonc, andthatthe exports
of Chicago will not Bill below forty millions
of bushels, including wheat, com, rye and
oats, it will sec that we -are prepared to
honor any drafts which ; the commercial
world will make upon our granaries. Give
ns remunerative prices, and Chicago can
fill any holo'that famine will open.
"We mention as a matter of political his
tory that a nomination for the Vice-Presi
dency on the Douglas ticket was offered to.
Sir. Yancey of Alabama, by an intimate
and trusted friend of Sir. Douglas, a short
time before the meeting of the Baltimore
Convention. Sir. Geo. A. Sanders was the
marr who endeavored to drive that bargain;
and his relations to Douglas arc such that
the latter must have been fully aware of his
Intention, if indeed he did not create it
This fret explains the policy which select
ed Hr. Fitzpatrick as Douglas’ coadjutor,
and, after his declination, hunted around
for U. JT. Johnson, who is more offensively
radical than almost any- other man in the
South. The history of the Baltimore Con
vention, yet to bo written, will show, Mr,
Douglas up in a waythat will open the eyes
of his followers if nothing else can. This
offer to Yancey is the least of his dishon
or- ' ~
"Wo have the most. cheering accounts
from the District represented by this gal
lant Republican. Without any assistance
from abroad, he lias made a splendid can
vass, meeting and overcoming the argu
ments and machinations cf his opponents
at every point. The Chivalry had set their
hearts upon his defeat. We have been as
sured that large sums of money have been
sent into his district for that express pur
pose, which doubtless came directly out of
Virginia pockets. This money has been
faithfully expended, hut, as the end will
prove, without the hoped for results* His
majority will be larger than ever before.
Wisconsin owes it to herself, as well as to
her gallant representative, to meet this
shameless ontside interference, with a ma
jority so overwhelming that the attempt
will never be repeated; and we arcglad to
loam that such is the intention of her
people. ‘
the alternative.
Recent events have diminalcd the Pres
idential canvass of all the aspirants save
Lincoln and Breckinridge. It is now as
well known as anything can be, that if
there should be an election by the people,
Lincoln will be our next President; and
that should the election go into Congress,
cither Breckinridge or Lone will be chosen.
2?o contingency can arise to prevent the
realization of one'or the other of these al
ternatives. The people of the North who
may be deluded into voting for some other
person on the sixth of November, will sim
ply perform an act of self-disfranchisement.
They will practically withdraw ffom the
contest, and leave to others the duty of se
lecting a Chief Magistrate and of determin
ing tho policy of the government for at
least four years to come, and perhaps indef
initely. We ask the honest portion of the
Douglas and Bell men if, for the mere sake
of voting for their first choice for the Pres
idency, with the certainty that such votes
can hart no direct bearing upon the result,
thojr «iro triQlag to sacrifice the -chance of
bwiring a part in settling the issues of this
campaign? Wc have the testimony of
Doughs himself that the Breckinridge par
ty is a disunion party. Thai it is in favor
of the indefinite extension of slavery, the
opening of the. African slave trade, and the
perpetuity of the institution, wc all know’.
Mr. Lincoln is for maintaining the Union
and the Constitution intact, is opposed to
the revival of the African slave trade, op
posed to the extension of slavery, and in
favor of leaving the subject of its ultimate
extinction to the peaceful and voluntary
action of the States In which it exists. Here
are the two policies. They differ radically.
Northern men especially, accustomed as
they are to the blessings of free speech, free
mails, a free press and a free pulpit, cannot
possibly regard with indifference the pros
pect of inaugurating a policy which would
deprive him and his children of these safe-,
guards of liberty. A vole cast for Lincoln
it a vole for maintaining them—a vote cast
directly for Breckinridge, or so cast as to
throw the election into Congress, is a vote
in favor of giving them all np. This is the
alternative. Men of the North! which do
yoa prefer?
Last spring, when the municipal election
in tills city was pending, letters were sent
off Bouth where many of the: Irish, labor
ers from Northern Illinois were profitably
employed, saying that Gurnee was sure to
be elected, that Chicago was to be 'greatlv
Improved, and that the “byes” must come
borne. They came, voted, and arc here
yet; bat most of them have not been em
ployed half the time during the whole sum
mer. The false Democracy arc again play
ing the same disreputable game. D. N. Bar-
Co., Democrats, or at least opposed to
fvnfnm.v, contractors on tbe Louisville
improvement, have their bills up for
laborers, on a work that will give them
constant employment for three or four
years; J. B. Asbly & Co, fcrocious'/Doug
lasltcs,havo a job on tbe Mobile/fe Ohio
road, and, In perfect good frith, advertise
for a. thousand men, at wages which no
contractor in the North will think of pay
tng; Mr~ Marshall, of this city. Democrat
also, a contractor on the levee Improvement
on the . Mississippi, wonts a thousand
men at S3O per month and board, with the
promise of work all winter, and an unlim
ited number of jiggers every day; he has
already taken down over two hundred and
is endeavoring to get more; J. AV. Wilson,
of whom*we spoke yesterday, contractor
on the Kenosha & Eockfbrd road, has his
bills up for men, promising steady employ
mental good wages. These are how-fid*
coatmctore—lhey want what they adver
tise for and arc willing to pay for all they
get * ; ' r
It is known to everybody that there is a
superabundance of laborers in Chicago; that
. there is but little improvement going on;
that what is in progress will be suspended
when cold weather sets in; that there is a
prospect for a tight winter among the poor
cr and that steady and remunera
tive employment during .the inclemcht
'months will not, if the laborers arc not de
ceived, be thrown away. Now what does
-the Tima. <£ Herald ? Says, and swears,
that these advertisements arc BlackKepuc
lican tricks to disfranchise the Irish voters;
.that they not go; that there is labor
here in abundance; that the new gas com.
• paoy are to laydown their pipes this winter
and thafihere will bo employment for all
- Ab that is simply heathenish— a political
dodge by which u few hundred men, at the
cost to them of work for themselves and
bread; for their families during the whole
winter, arc induced to remain here to vote
' thcDouglas ticket! .It is a repetition of
the trick by which many of the same .men
were brought back from the South last
i Spring, two months earlier thin they would
“ have come, to vole for Gurnee and share
- the spoils of his administration!
" ,VTe make no appeals to the Irish; but we
! appeal to the public'without distinction of
party, and ask if the tactic* of the Tima and
fferald ire not.grossly unfair to .the labor
ers, who need work and money, end the
contractors who are honestly endeavoring,
gel the means of completing their jobs-Thcre
is, there' will he, no work here sufficient to
employ'half the men who will he out of
place. fThe new gas company will not "put
down iti pipes this wintif, To do it would
cost them seventy cents per running yard
for excavation, when the same work, the
frost being out of the ground, can be done
for ten I cents. So of all other improve
ments how under way. It is unfair, 11 is
cruel to attempt to detain laborers here up
on such pretences—ns the Timet and Herald
setsupj We have only to say that if it suc
ceeds, the benevolent societies'of lids city
will foot the bilk They have burdens
enough with the care of those whose age
or infirmities make them subjects ofeharity.
Let them not be borne down by the'familics
of thosl who might have lidd employment,
if not kepi herb by the leaders of the De
mocracy, to vole a ticket that will not come
within’ ten day's journey ot successs. 1
Hardly two weeks will elapse before the
people of the whole country, except the
kingdom of South Carolina, will bq called
upon to choose national rulers for the next
four years. Our Republican friends in the
Northwest have been earnestly at work
for months to secure a triumph for the
principles which we believe arc necessary
to the perpetuity of the government on
the basis upon which the Fathers organ-
ized it They have done an immensity of
gratuitous and patriotic labor in the distri
bution of documents, in procuring for the
people an opportunity to hear distinguished
speakers set forth the necessity for the ap
plication of remedies to existing disorders
in the body politic, and in perfecting an
organization withontwhlch labor is vain. In
Illinois, especially,' the Republicans have
done their whole duty. There is no State
in the Union, not excepting Indiana or
Pennsylvania, that has been fought like
this, i In every part of it the Republicans
are thoroughly aroused and confident of
victory. But much; yet remains to be done.
The fruit of the days of toll are yet to be
reaped; and onr laborers must still keep in
the field. The time for monster meetings,
and for the distribution of documents has
passed. They have done their work. Bat
the men whose faith has been strengthened
by the appeals of our speakers and by the
printed evidence laid before them, and the
new men, who, impelled by a sense of duty,
are now acting with ns for the first time,
must he got to the polls. The labor, then,
hereafter, is in the townships and precincts,
and upon the local committees a weighty
duty is devolved. They will see to iL.
L That arrangements arc made for a fair
Republican representation in every Board
of Inspectors of election, to the end that
no Knngfl« and Wisconsin frauds upon the
ballot-boxes may snatch a well earned and
righteous victory from our bands,
IL That teams and men'are engaged, in
advancc, to get cyerjf- Republican voter to
the polls. This work must not be left to
chance in any precinct in the State where
our friends can enumerate half a dozen
ballots. To do this job effectually, voting
lists should be prepared, and as early as 2
o’clock in the afternoon, every man who
has not deposited his vote should he sent
for and entreated to come. Provision
should be made for the infirm and aged, as
if a rainy day were expected. This is all
IIL That fearless challengers who will
pledge themselves to stand all dr at the
polls to which they are detailed, should be
selected, and £ ihc exercise of their rights
they iSasl be defended at all hazards. This
is the more necessary because in all the
doubtful legislative districts the pro-Slav
ery men are preparing for frauds that arc
without example in the State.
TV. That tickets, and an abundance of
them, with the names of all the candidates
correctly spelled, are provided at every
poll; :
V. That enough Republicans are pledged
to go to every poll to protect their chal
lengers and each other from violence and
These are obvious dalles of election day,
and we entreat our local committees every
where to be sure that they are discharged.
Do not take it for granted that somebody
wDI do aIT this; but select the men—such
men only as are trustworthy and reliable
pledge them each man to his share, and on
the day of the great contest go to the polls
with the self-assurance that tho ground
work of a glorious victory is laid. In the
meantime, much work of another sort may
profitably be undertaken:
See and- labor 'with the doubtful men,
more or less of whom may be found in
every township. They arc deafened by
the cries of “ Abolition, 11 “ Nigger Equali
ty,” “Dispnion, 11 “John Brown,” and the
like balderdash. Their inclinations, in
nine eases out of ten, are for the non-exten
sion of slavery into Territories now free;
for a fair, just and economical administra
tion; for all measures which prom
ise to put this government permanently on
the side offree-soil and free men; for the
beneficent Homestead measure; for a mod
ification of the tariff in such a way that a
fair share of the advantages of incidental
protection may be reaped by our own far
mers, laborers, and mechanics. Sec them;
explain to them that this noise about Popu
lar Sovereignty is only clamor without re
ality behind it; that the Dred Scott dog
mas of the pro-slavery men, arc, if allowed
to control the legislation of the country,
a death warrant for all freedom whether of
the Territories or States; that Mr. Douglas
lias not the remotest chance of an election;
that the real contest is between' Lincoln
and Breckinridge—slavery restriction
and slavery extension by the power of the
Federal Government; that the Republican
party is truly national^ and conservative,
.with none but patriotic and Christianpur
poses, and that it is .to-day the only organi
zation which can give anygoarantys that
.it will govern the country justly in the
spirit of the Fathers of the Republic, whose
principles and policy it inherits. All men
!not sodden with prejudice and hate may
lie made to see these things; and, seeing
f them, unless false to themselves, their coun
try and their Maker, they can be induced to
vote for Honest Old Abe.
See to It, that Republican foreigners who
are legally entitled to their papers of natu
ralization arc furnished with them; and see
to it further that all these exercise their
newly acquired rights of citizenship, and
vote. In every county there are more or
less of these; and they are wanted to swell
the majority by which Illinois will declare
for the Rcpublicanfiulh.
See the young men who will vole this year
for the first lime. There arc inahy of them.
Entreat them not to signalize their assump
tion of the rights, duties, and responsibili
ties of citizenship in a Democratic Repub
lic, founded on the immutable principles of
Right, by casting their first ballot for the
extension of a system of human servitude,
which is the concentration of all human
Wrong. 'Ppmtontlo them their obliga
tions to the true Democratic faith, their vi
tal interest in the freedom; of the Territo
ries and' in the. speedy enactment of a
.Homestead Law by which they may be
come owners of the soil. Bid them range
themselves under the banner of liberty,
and there take service of Which they will
never be ashamed!
and! yon will sweep the State like a whirl

of both factions, and have heard their objec
tions to the Republican porly, ahd. think I
have a satisfactory answer to each one. In the
subjoined article will be found some of the
points raised against our cause, and the replies
I have been In the habit of rendering:

tjiicsiioii.—ls not the Republican party a
sectional orguulzatlou ? and would not the
election of Mr. Lincoln be a sectional triumph?
Answer. —Certainly not Civlilialion, Chris
tianity, Protestantism, arc equally liable to the
same charge, and for just the same reason.
Their principles arc universal enough to in
clude all mankind; but portions of mankind
have dogmalicaily set up against them a bar
rier called pr^uiidr. . Republicanism is a sec
tional berray In South Carolina; in the same
sense ih which Protestantism is a sectional
heresy in Spain. ; As well set down the Bible
os a book hostile to the people of Japan, be
cause tie' people of Japan will not themselves
raid it'nor allow others to road it for them.
The dcilrc to tyrannize, of which slaveholders
accuse lis, is merely the reflection of their own
intolerance; and it is over this narrowest and
meanest of sectionalisms that the election of
Mr. Lincoln will be a substantial triumph.
(1 It is verv evident that while slavery ex
igtjf Kemiblicsuilsm can never predominate In
the Southern States. There will be constant
irritation in those States until alldiscusslou
of the subject shaft cease In the North. Ln
less the purpose be to forcibly root ( ant slavery,
would It not be better to cease giving ollcnct.
A.—This is as if a madman should place him
self on the public highway, and command all
travellers to turn back under penalty of incur
ring his displeasure. Republicanism will
flourish wherever there are freedom of speech,
and liberty of the press.
Must wo surrender these safeguards because
they are distasteful to a haughty oligarchy?
Must the men of one community cease to do
right, because the men of another community
insist on doing wrong ? The good will propl
tiatediby snch a sacrifice would ben disgrace
while It lasted. It is related that a tbol once
sold his nose fora nosegay How much wiser
would it bo to purchase peace at the cost of
liberty ? - :
O.—Ail onr public domain was purchased by
the common blood and treasure. Do_»®t aU
our people possess an equal right to go there
with their property ? Has Congress authority
to take away that right f
A.—lf this right be absolute and nncondl-
tional, how ran it be annulled by the convcr
fiion of a Territory into a State ? Docs not the
right to enter upon the public lands remain the
same wherever they may be —in Texas or lowa,
In Minnesota or in Kansas ? This doctrine, if
true, would plant slavery Jn every State in the
Republic. No snch thing as prohibition could
ever have been possible. But If the right be
Umitcd and conditional. It follows inevitably
that the sovereign people have power to re.
strict its exercise within the domain which
they govern in common. Nor can this point
bo successfully controverted, unless it be
shown that the people of the Stales, through
their Congress, can exerdse no jurisdiction
whatever over their own Territories. If the
power to make an organic law for a Territory,
docs not include the power to prohibit slavery
therein, during the existence of that organic
law, how, in the name of reason, can the pow-
cr to make a Constitution for a new State, in
dude the power to prohibit slavery therein
during tho existence of that Constitution ?
Q. —The slave U property in Kentucky; the
horse is property In Illinois. • If Congress has
the right to prevent the man of Kentucky
from going into a Territory with his slaves,
has It not just tho some right to prevent tho
man of Illinois from going there with his
A.—The horse and the man arc not property
In the same sense. Let the slave kill bis mas
ter, and, If the law be observed, be Is tried,
convicted, and.hanged, the same as any other
10411 *ould be. Let the horse kill Ida master
—what punishment docs the law Inflict? Wc
have no law making horses property, and yet
they are recognized as snch throughout
the world. Slaves arc property only where
they are mode so by law. A statute declaring
horses not property could have no binding
force. During the Revolutionary war, tbe
second war, and all the southern Indian wars,
slaves were employed ns soldiers, scouts,
teamsters, and servants. They fell in battle,
they were taken prisoners, they died; but no
claim was ever allowed bythcFcdcral Govern-
ment for llic value of aslavc thus lost. Claims
were always allowed for tho value of horses.
The man of Illinois may not be prohibited
from entering a Territory with his horses, be
cause horses are property by the universal
voice of mankind, and by the universal sanc
tion of law. The man of Kentucky may be
prohibited from taking with him his slaves,
because the laws of Kentucky, by virtue of
which alone, he holds them os slaves, have no
existence beyond tho geographical limits of
his State.

publican answers will be presented In my next

Southern Illinois Conference .and Sla-
Buxkeb Hill, 111., Oct. 22,15G0.
Editor Chicago Tribune;
The Southern Illinois Annual Conference
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, now in
session In this place, has by an almost unani
mous vote, just. adopted the report of their
Commute on slavery, a copy of which I send
you.' *
I will say further, that the Conference has
just heard of the assassination of Rev. Mr.
Bewley, by ft pro-slavery mqj) In Texas; and a
.set of very pointed and forcible'resolutions
in regard to the matter, were introduced by
two of the most Influential men of the body,
and unanimously adopted. These resolutions
will make their appearance in due time.
Yours respectfully, J. P. Davis.
To the Southern Illinois Annual Conference.
Tour Committee on Slavery respectfully offer
for consideration, the following resolutions,
L That we rejoice in the fact, that from the
commencement of Us existence, our church
occupied decidedly- anti-slavery ground;
and bos always had upon record,. a pointed
earnest and solemn appeal against the evil of
6l ? Cl ?hat while we announce this tact with
out any hesitancy or concealment, vx unhes
itatingly and distinctly avow our determina
tion to refrain from participation in all oppo
sition to slavery that is not of a peaceful and
legal character; consequently we affectionate
ly blit earnestly solicit our friends everywhere,
to frown upon all attempts for the forcible dis
solution oi the relation of master and slave,
which, by the sanction of municipal law, exists
in the slave-holding States of this confederacy.
3. That while we concede to slave masters
their vested right in this particular, we must
aflirm our right and that of our brethren eve
ry where, freely and peacefully to discuss the
evils of slavery; and we Insist, that such dis
cussion cannot undcrany circumstances, what
ever, constitute the least infringement upon
the natural dr vested rights of any portion of
the citizens of our country.
4. Thatlu order to demonstrate the com
j edibility of an am Slavery church, distinctly
avering its determination to labor for the ex
tirpation of slavery, with social order and tran
quility in slave holding communities, we point
with satisfaction to the history of our ecclesi
astical organization from the date of its earli
est existence, and to the statistics exhibiting
the great numbers both of masters and slaves
who have been gathered into its pale, and fur
nished withthebreadof life through the la
bors of its ministry.
5- That in view of the facts, exhibited in
the foregoing resolutions, we .reflect with re
gret ana amazement upon the attempt recent
ly made in a neighboring State, to forcibly dis
perse one of the annual conferences, when in
peaceful session under the supervision of one
©fourchief pastors;that we deeply sympa
thize with our afflicted .brethren, both of the
clcrgyand laity, whose most prcclons rights
have been assailed by repealed acts of lawless
force; and that we commend the eases of those
brethren to the fervent prayers ofthe member
ship of the entire church.
G. That, notwitbstadlng the opposition in
dicated by our votes at our last annual session,
to all cliangcs then contemplated in the pro
visions of the discipline concerning slavery,
we nevertheless acquiesce In theactionofthe
late General Conference touchlcgthat matter;
and that In the view ofthe advisory character
ofthe new chanter upon slavery, we regard it
as really more lenient to our brethren who are
unhappily connected with slavery, than were
the provisionstrfthe former chapter; conse
quently, we have not the least sympathy with
any movement'wherever, inaugurated, that
contemplate the secession - of any annual con
ference or conference? from the church, in con
saqncnce of the introduction into the Disci
pline ofthe chapters upon slavery.
7, That we hear with surprise and regret of
the occasional utterance upon the part of some
ofourchurch members, oi opinions favorable
to slavery in the abstract; and that we respect
folly yet earnestly commend to the prayerful
consideration of such brethren the following
facts, viz: '•
' That no Influence in all the land is ar
rived with more inveterate hostility furainst
the church of their choice,-than is the ease
with the slave power of the country. Second,
That the utterance of pro-sUvery sentiments
by onr church members is an exhibition of dls
rwmrd for the deliberate and solemnly exprees
: coWnions of the entire church. Third, That
such utterance has a tendency to expose onr
•brethren upon the border to persecution.
Fourth, That Christian people cannot consis
tently treat with indifference the dearly ex
pressed opinions of the church of their choice
uponlqucstions either of morals or doctrine.
JriftJh That to sanction slavery, is virtually to
approve of the African slave trade, which has
been decided to be piracy by the leading
power* of Christendom, but which, In conse
quence we fear, ofthe teachings of professed
••Christians of odr country, is being prosecuted

Gus. Hurriugton, the Democratic nominee
to stay away from Congress held forth here last
evening. ' A Democratic speech- being a great
rarity in this scetlon,all the Republicans agreed
to attend, but Ml bftnc away belter satisfied
tb-if they were right Ilian ever before.
He dealt only in personal-assaults, such as
calling Seward a llatfor-saying that Douglas
ever uttered the sentiment that he “cared not
whether slavery was voted up or downl” IHb.
said that Douglas occupied a position like
Christ in the days of the Apostles,, and his
deeds were as glorious. Here a stampede of
the clergymen took place, they not caring to
bear such uuholy desecration of
the Saviour in connection with poatlcs; lie
a great handle of the people of Chicago
puttinadown free speech, when they refused
to hear Douglas, but forgot to say anything
about free speech In other portions of the
C °UeS[d the Republicans hired Black Doug
las to follow the great American statesman
S. A. some years ago, through this State, and
said he,- “ 1 was speaking at Aurora that year,
when the people commenced hollering for
Ford Douglas,” and said he, “ I had a pistol in
my pofckct, and as sure os there is a God in
heaven,* liad he came upon the stand I would
have shot him. I meant to do it I wanted
to do it, and I intended to do it” Here the
Democracy cheered .vociferously. .He said
that Douglas stood above any statesman that
ever lived in this country; that Clay, Webster
and Calhoun were nowhere when- Douglas
spoke iu the Senate. - . .
He sdid the old Constitution of Illinois re
cognized slavery—a lie that bos been too often
refuted to have even a semblance of truth
about ft. ,
He closed his speech by saying that the
Democratic party believe that- the negro is
■ the happiest and best off when in Slavery.
He tried to prove by John Wentworth s pa
per that the Republican party were Abolition
ists, and asked, “Is not he a Republican >” A
prompt and emphatic “no” “no, 'fromthe
audience silenced him on that point.
' He said so often that he began to be ridi

For three mohths this Itinerant pcdlcr of
Yankee notions bos been hawking his pinch
beck principles about the country, to the in
finite dh<oist Cf all sensible men. Ho has
made speeches wherever a handful of people
could be assembled to hear him—speeches at
railway stations, speeches from hotel windows,
speeches at college dinners, speeches at clam
hakes, speeches In the morning when duly
sober, in his dressing gowti, speeches at noon
when only a little high, in bis coat and collar,
speeches at night when more than half seas
over, in his night cap, speeches vindictively
ferocious, and speeches with nothing in them.
And all this speaking, and all this traveling, if
his own words arc to be believed, Is underta
ken for no purpose whatever. He disclaims
all aspirations lor the Presidency, arid talks as
if hb would not accept it If offered to him.
Then, wherefore Is he making such strenuous
exertions to obtain it ?
It is not probable that Douglas will be kind
ly received at the South. Since bis recent
visit to Virginia it has become plain to the
simplest understanding, that all bis efforts
during this canvass have been directed to the
furtherance of Lincoln’s interests, and to the
destruction of tho Democratic party. It was
for the accomplishment of these objects that
he interfered to prevent a fusion in Pennsyl
vania of tho elements opposed to Black Re
publicanism, and thereby procured the defeat
of the Democracy in -that. State. North and
South lie is pursuing the same policy, exerting
all bis influence to Insure the defeat of the
Democratic nominees. He hates the. South,
and he bates the Democratic party, and will
do all in his power to bring about their humil
iation. •
We regard it as somewhat ofaboldmoveon
the part of Judge Douglas, to venture on
Southern soil in the present excited condition
of the public mind.
We do not bdieVe that he will be permitted
to finish out his appointments, but before the
programme Is completed, that he will be in
mdignautly expelled from the limits of the
South. And we tincnxty hope he may be.
Lincoln would not bo permitted to make
the tour of the South, scattering broadcast his
damnable doctrines, and we see no reason why
greater indulgence should be shown to Doug
las while engaged in the' same office. Both
are working to the same end, the subjugation
of the South, and we,see no reason why a
white flag should not protect one traitor as
well as another.
We do not counsel harsh' measures against
Judge Douglas. We •would not have him
come to bodily harm. Such treatment al
though be may merit it, would compromise
the honor of the South. But we would have
him treated with neglect wherever he appears,
we wonld have such condemnation of ms prin
ciples and his purposes evinced that in the
language of the Memphis
may strike into his very heart, and retribution
ring through his every veins,” until humiliated
and abashed be may slink lock to bis North
ern fastness, never again to show his bloated
visage in any Southern community. That’s all
the harm we wish Judge Douglas for the
Dongbraco Lorrnbec.

The attempt at fusion by the Douglas Dem

this county, and Harvey Foster, f or ®cri) ol
Knox county, well known by all our ,f o3 '
moved to Texas, two years ago, and settled at
Rock Creek, Johns county. They were both
conspicuous Douglas men in the campaign or
18S8,*the former having been borhi Democrat
and the latter being an old line Whig during
the existence of the party. 4 f _
It seems that they have become obnoxious
to the Southerners from tbe tact that they
came from the North. They have been sub
jected to outrageous Insults and among other
tilings, their honscs have been searched for
incendiary documents, a process that Is
through once a month with the houses or all
Northerners. • All letters and papers are taken
andclpfiely examined,and any
s((ra“‘hil a private letter, of any Republican
newspaper ii sufficient to gain the fiat, of in
dignation Jrom the Inquisitors.
The families of these persons have repeated
ly written home to their friends not to send
Inem any newspapers or fay anything about
slavery In their fetters. Both bhreeves and
Foster were in favorof slavery lll d were about
to Invat in that kind of property. But it
scorns that they wero regarded as objects of
suspicion and a short time since received no
tice to quit the State of Texas in nine weeks,
and th(s* are now preparing to comply with
thia outrageous demand. Both have much
property in lands and cattle, and Bhreeves was
largely lengagcd iu the practice of medicine.
They will leave at a great personal Inconve

they wfil-probably forfeit their lives.

[From the Canton (111.) Register, Oct. 23,]
The reader will remember, that .a few weeks
since we stated, on the authority dr a letter
received at Fairview, that Dr. Bhreeves and
Mr. Foster, with their families, had been
warned by the ruffians sway in Texas
to leave that State, and widE making prepara
tions to return to Illinois. On Thursday last,
Mr. Wm. Bybee, a resident of T.exas, well
klitJfrli to inahy of oiir ciUlcua fis adehlcf in
cattle and horses, arrived from that State, and
brought to the friends of Fairview the melan
eholy intelligence that Dr. Shreevea and Mr*.
Foster hadfallen victims to the spirit of out
rage which runs riot in Texas.
The two families, it seams, had complied
with the ruthless command expelling them
from their homes, atld were on theft way to
wards this State, when they were overtaken by
theft persecutors, aud Dr. Sbrceycs and airs.
. Foster summarily secured and hung to a tree.
Mr. Foster and the remainder of the two faml
lies escaped. * _ .
Wc get the news from Dr. Shreevea, of Fair
view, a nephew of the Dr. Shreeves above re
ferred to, and who has no doubt as to Its am
thentleity. He says Mr. Bybcc was a friend
aud neighbor of bis tinclcVi and au acquaint
ance of fifteen years’ standing.
No letters , have been received from Dr.
Shreeves or Mr. Foster fbr eight weeks, bv
their friends at Fairview, a cneiimsuicce of
fearful portent, as heretofore they have been
prompt corresp jndeuts. At no previous time
have they permitted letters to them to remain
so long unanswered. ..... *
lu our sympathy for the afflicted friends of
these martyrs to the cause of free labor, we
have no disposition to bestow upon the au
thors of this enormous crime, those denunci
ations which their guilt deserves. “Vengeance
is mine}” sflilh the Lord, cud these ruffian
murderers cannot escape the malediction which
made Cain a wanderer and and outcast upon
the earth. • . ...
Wc will remark, by way of explanation, that
Dr. Shreeves was not only not an Aboil
tioulst, but wc are informed by his connec
tions at Fairview, was in favor of slavery, and
was preparing to make Investments In negroes.
When he left this State he was a Douglas man.
The only grounds for disturbing him was bis
being a Northern man, and coming from a sec
tion where free white labor Is respected.

One of the editors of the New Orleans I\ca~
f/uiK who was here at the time of the recovery
of the body of the lamented Lumsden, In
writing to that paper particulars of the event,
after mentioning a number of our citizens who
had made special exertions to contribute to
the success of the search for the bodies of the
lost, says:
But If I were to give you a list of all who
sympathized with, proffered aid, ond gave it, 1

Chicago, with whom I had the fortune to
make acquaintance. lam more pmticalar In
mentioning these, because on the first occur
rence of the disaster, there were harsh things
said, and justly, of the conduct of a portion ox
the longshore population, In regard to v ine
property which came on shore. These crimi
nalities were indignantly reprobated by the
great masses of the population, and have not
been repeated. They were the acts ot a law
less lew, who took the opportunity of asuifc
den occasion of great distress to plunder what
they could reach; hot the people arc no more
responsible Intheir character than the citizens
of New Orleans would be for the pilferings on

Ou tlie contrary, uo community
behaved throughout this ead affiur with more
unvarying and distlntcrested kindness and
manliness than have been displayed towards
our poor friend. He came to them almost a
stranger; they made him thelrgue»t,andhave
eared for him with a rare sense of the highest
duties of hospitality. Disaster fell upon him
while in their household, os they thourfit, and
they sought for his remains with fiutnim in
tercel as for a brother. We, who have Known
him long,’ know how worthy he was of such
interest. They extended to him, exactly the
generous and loyal cares which he was always
so prompt to'estend to others. If any oucor
these had fallen into trouble and grief, here, H
was in the nature of Lumsden to do what has
been done for him; to lake them into ms
large heart, aud extend his open hand, to help
them, living;’or restore them,, dead, to the

“Mr. David Levi has just returned from Ari

stopped at Natchez, a vote was taken for Pres
idential preferences among the passengers.
One very respectable-looking merchant from
Ohio voted for Lincoln, with thc_ remark that

The Raleigh (N. C.) Messenger, says that
they have “undeniable authority,” that the
State Bank of North Carolina, in view of the
“ giarpiing condition of the country,” has de
termined to suspend discounting until further

look for the Democratic fire-eaters of North
Carolina. Where arc the sinews of war to
come from ?—the banks refuse to let them
have any.
The Governor of South Carolina has is
sued his Proclamation calling together tho
Legislature on the 6th proximo, for tho pur
pose of appointing Presidential Electors, and
“ also, that they may, If advisable, take action
for the safely of the State."
Gov. Pettns of Mississippi writes, in re
ply to an invitation to speak at a meeting in
Chickasaw county,that “a proper tax on north
ern manufactures, and individual action look
ing to non-lntcrcoursc commercially with the
abolition States, is the lever which, properly
bandied, can turn New England upside down
in six months. Half her population would be
paupers In less than twelve months from the
day Southern States ceased to trade with her.”
Missouri.—' The Breckinridge State Com
mittee of Missouri have issued a long address
severely denouncing Douglas, and inquiring
why any Democrat can still persist in support
ing him. In regard to the election of Lincoln,
that event is conceded, and the sentiment of
the Committee is expressed as follows:
“We do not despair, but we concede the
probabilities of Lincoln’s election. In that
event the people of the extreme Southern
States will feel that their property and their
lives arc endangered. Many of them, doubt
less, will urge a dissolution of the Union.
Missouri has everything to 10-e, nothing to
gain, by the happening of that event, fche
should do her utmost to prevent it. Now w
the time for her to act.”
Coming to His Senses.—Old Mr. Bennett
seems to be recovering his senses, which all
admit have been astray for this many a year.
The Herald has persistently predicted com
mercial panic, dissolution and civil war, as the
inevitable result of Mr. Lincoln’s election. It
has now made the important discovery tint
Mr. Lincoln Is a conservative, Union-loving
man. It concedes his election as beyond a
doubt, and says:
“It appears that ‘Old Abe’ I- a conservative

Tenxessee.— The Memphis Scalanche says
remarkable changes, from Douglas to Breckin

they continue for two weeks, the State is sure

to give the electoral vote to Bell-Evcrett.
