The New Orleans Courier ; a Breckin
ridge journal, asserts upon what it pro
nounces entirely reliable authority, that
parties in that city have already commenc
ed making arrangements for the publica
tion of a Republican journal, In the confi
dent anticipation of the election of Lin
coln. The Courier also more than inti
mates that there is a strong Republican
dement In that city which, immediately
upon the election of a Republican Presi
dent, will not hesitate to take ground open- ;
ly. Wc presume the Courier is not mis
taken in cither statement. If so, wc can
safely promise the New Orleans people
a great improvement upon the journalism
to which they have long been accustomed,
as well as assure them, in advance, that
when the Republican element of that city
declares itself openly, it will be found to
consist of the most solid, conservative and
law-abiding citizens which New Orleans
The SL Louis Republican —a journal that
abetted, by all the means in its power, the
Kansas frauds—that has, since it sold out
to the pro-slavery parly of its Slate, been
the malignant and unscrupulous re viler of
free labor and free soil—ls sure that the
Germans of SL Louis, “men of Carl
Schurz's principles/ 1 arc about to rush over
into the counties of Madison, 3lonroe and
St Chur, and vote the Republican ticket.
•* Old wantons are sure to ciy 4 Wanton P
first,” an adage that will be again illustrated
in the course pursued by tliat unprincipled
sheet We warn our friends, in the conn*
ties named, to beware. The effort of the
Republican to fix the crime of importation
ai}d illegal voting upon onr friends in Uli
riots, is sufficient evidence that it is ac
quainted with the iniquities which the
Sham Democracy arc preparing to practice.
Just so it bellowed about the Free State
when the marauders from Missouri were
making their invasion of Kansas. Just so
3t behaved when the Oxford and Kickapoo
atrocities were perpetrated. Just so it
scolded and warned when Madison and
Sangamon counties were carried for the
pro-slavery men by the importations and
pargcrles of 1858. Let the Republicans of
SL Clair and the adjacent counties look out
for an invasion!
Xx-Gov, John Reynolds, familiarly
lenow.n as the “ Old Ranger,” is out in an
address to his Breckinridge friends in this
State, urgto.g them to vote for Douglas. He
has no word to savin lavor of Douglas—he
entertains the satfie hostile feelings for his
principles and his course in breaking up
the Democratic party that he has held for
the last six years—ho advises no close alli
ance, no public or private affiliation with
the “Douglas rebels,*’ —but still he urges
his friends to vote for Douglas; and why ?
44 Are the Breckinridge men,” says he, “so
"short-sighted as not to sec that if they
"support Breckinridge in Illinois, it will
♦* elect Lincoln, perhaps by the people, and
that event Breckinridge is lost? Why
"stand off from n friendly union with any
"Democratic ticket to save the country?
"The Union ticket in the free States may
"defeat Lincoln, and, hy means of the
“Souse of Representative* elect Breckinridge
“President.* There is the inilk in the
cocoa nut. “Vote for Douglas,” says
the “ Old Ranger ” —that is the only hope
left of electing Breckinridge.” We have
been telling our Douglas friends, from
time to time, that the only effect of giving
the vole of tins State to Donglas would be
to increase the chances of Breckinridge.
Here Is good Democratic authority in sup
port of our position. What do yon think
of it Douglas men ? Are you willing to be
used in raking 3lr. Breckinridge’s chest
nuts from the fire.
Hr. Corwin, in his speech at the Wig
wam oO Thursday evening, revived an il
lustration originally used by Mr. Lincoln
in a speech at Leavenworth, Kansas, in
1859, to show the baseless claim of the
Douglas men tlu'ti slaves, under the Con
stitution of the United States, are property
in the sense that hort’os, cattle and ships are
property. Said he, ** Suppose a vessel
“ breaks from her moorings in Detroit Riv
•*er, and floats over to the Canada shore;
“ or,- that a horse swims the stream and re
** gales himself in a Canadian pasture, and
4 *the Canadians should in these and all
•‘other cases refuse to give up the articles
•* or property which had gone astray—how
•‘long would our amicable relations with
•‘the Canadian government be maintained
“ in. the face of such disrespect for the rights
“of common-law property—such want of
**intcniL'tional comity? Yet slaves—‘prop
“erty* according to the definition of the
•* South—art every day escaping into Her
•‘Majesty’s dominions; but who ever heard
■“that they were claimed as merchandise—
chattels personal? What would be the
•‘answer to a demand for them in that
“character? Who ever proposed to go to
“ war with Great Britain or to make repri
“sals bn her subjects, because the Fugitive
“ Slave Law is not executed in her Canadi
•* dian provinces f*
The illustration, plain as it is, reveals the
untenable character of the Democratic
claim, and the deceit which the orators and
editors of that party practice when they
pretend to find in tbc Common Law or in
the Federal Constitution a warrant for ab
solute, unqualified property in man? Wc
commend this part of Gov. Corwin’s speech
to the Times and Herald, It annihilated
Gov. Seward by calling him a Pecksnifflan
hypocrite; now let it exercise its vocabula
ry on tough old Tom.
In Toting for Mr. Douglas what do yon
expect to accomplish 1 If he is the repre
sentative of a specific policy which you de
sire to see adopted, can you secure that re
sale by giving him ydar vote ? Whatever
may occur iiercr.lier, is it not certain that
the Douglas policy will not be the polity of
the government for the next fonr years ?
The President—whether it be Lincoln,
Breckinridge, or Jo. Lane—will be oppos
ed to it; it will have but one vote in Ifrp
Senate in addition to that of Douglas him
self; it wQI not have twenty suppportcre
in the House; and the Supreme Courtis
dead against it, in the sense in which it is
understood in the free Buttes, Each of the
co-ordinate branches of the government
will present an unbroken front against it.
The whole of the South is compactly ar
rayed'against it; and there Is not a free
State in the Union which can be relied on
to support it. Its adoption, then, within
the next four yean, is a sheer impossibility.
Wc ask you, Douglas men," whether it is
wise or patriotic to throw away your votes
upon what yourselves will admit is, for the
present, a mere abstraction? Are you
Willing to be counted out of the contest—

On Wednesday evening, just after Gov
ernor Corwin had commenced speaking in
the Wigwam, a procession of Douglas men,
numbering not over twenty-five, with a
band of music, a banner and torch-lights,
crossed over Lake street bridge and march
ed cast to Clark. In the rear of this little
crowd, and evidently making part of the
show, was a gang of young men, one
of whom was mounted on a rail carried on
the shoulders of others; around his neck
was a rope, the other end of which was
carried aloft on a pole—the whole intended i
to represent the hanging of the Republican j
candidate, Honest ato Lincoln I I
We leave to others the expression of the
indignation which such a spectacle in the
Republican city of Chicago may well ex
cite ; and appeal to such decent men as ore
not already in the Republican party, to set
the seal of their indignation on acts like
that of which we complain. Abraham
Lincoln is an honored citizen of Illinois. In
the history of hts rise from obscurity to the
commanding position which he now occu
pies, there is not a line which we would
wish to see erased. Malignity has done
its worst and is yet tumble to point to a
blotch on his reputation as a citizen or a
man. He Ims earned his soubriquet, and I
wears his honors as meekly as Tn«r\ can.
But he believes that human slavery is a
cruel and unprofitable wrong, and that its
extension into Territories now free would
carry with it a curse and a blight That is
the sum of his offence, if wo may except
his conspicuous ability which has made him
the leader and representative of the party
based on the free-soll idea to which he
holds. Yet for this, he is hung in effigy, at
the tail of an Irish procession, in the prin
cipal city of Ha own State I
There is this to be said: That the day is
coming in which, in this country, it will be
no hanging matter to believe in the inalien
able and natural rights of man—blackmen
and white; and that the misguided zealots
who have not the courage to attempt the
erection of real gibbets upon which men
may be hung for opinion's sake, but con
tent themselves with an imitation of the
way in which Democracy is enforced and
illustrated in the South, where Democracy
is the only law, will be shamed into an ob
servance of the decencies which they do
not affect.
The procession of which we speak
marched east on Lake, to Clark; and north
on Clark, we know not where. The dumb
show was kept up as long as we observed
it; everywhere the pro-slavery men greet
ed it with applause.
Under the heading “A Fixed Fact,” the
Tima and Herald states that it has been
told that:
fhe Republicans of this city proposed to
addfnsnlt to Mary by manning the polls by
their bands of armed and insolent Wide
Awakes, and that the Democracy will be com
pcUcd to march between two files of these par
tisan troops!”
We -would inform the T. and 1L that the
■Wide-Awakes are no more “armed” than
its “Ever-Eeadies,” “Little Giants,” “In
vincibles,” and other torch-light Douglas
dabs; and so tar from being “insolent,”
they are much better behaved than their
opponents. The stoiy that “the Dcmoc
“racy will he compelled to march to the
“polls between these partisan troops” is ns
silly as untrue, and had its orgin in a weak
or distempered brain.
For some time past the T. and H. has
been devoting much labor to create a dis
turbance at the polls. It is poisoning the
minds of its partisans in regard to the inten
tions of the Republicans, - distorting every
circumstance, and misrepresenting the ac-
tions of its opponents. :
The Republicans desire to have a fair,
honest, and peaceable election. They will
do nothing wrong nor insulting towards the
Democracy. They want every man who is
a legal yoter.to vote one*, and no oftener.
The way to the polls will be as free and
open to Democrats as to Republicans. The
Wide-Awakes will not ask nor exercise any
privileges which they are unwilling to ac
cord to the “Evcr-Readies,” and other
Democratic clubs; nor will they concede
rights which they may not also enjoy.
What the T and JL hopes to accomplish
by inflaming the passions of its followers
it is difficult to conceive. Is it endeavoring
to create disturbance—to reproduce the
bloody, murderous scenes of 1857?
It looks like that. The Republicans will
xepcl aggressions upon their rights; they
will stand resolutely on the defensive.—
They propose to trespass upon nobody*
They desire that the road to the polls
should be as open to legal voters and
as safe and easy of approach as the road to
church. But for ballot-box staffers, for
persons not lawfully entitled to the fran
chise, they intend to make it a thorny path
—like the way of the transgressor— a hard
road to travel
If the T. and It would employ its influ
ence with its party to keep away from
tbc polls spurious Democratic * voters,
and would earnestly - dissuade Dem
ocratic “repeaters” to content themselves
with voting once each, there will be a quiet,
decent, orderly election day; and any
proper person will have no trouble to
deposit his ballot for the candidates of his
choice, no one molesting or daring to make
him afraid.
The Republicans propose to live up to
this method of conducting the election, and
we advise and exhort them to do so. Will
not the Time* and Herald Join us in lids
good work, and cease its incendiary appeals
and shameless perversions of the truth.—
We appeal to its self-respect and patriotism
If It i>osscsses any of these attributes. .

Farther Light on tho Galena Outrage.
Jerry Boyd, an honest, industrious and inof-
I Tensive colored drayman of our neighboring
city of Galena, where he had led a sober and
I reputable life for twenty years; his wife, Mary
I Boydvwhomhe had bought of out slavery .with
I money earned by the sweat of his brow; a girl
also colored but also free, aged 12 to 14, who
I lived In Jerry’s family; and a white child that
Maty took care offer a poor woman at service,
I were enticed away from their home two or
I three weeks ago by a couple of strangcrs,npon
the pretence that tho three oldest persons of
I the party were to have profitable and pleasant
I employment on a farm and in a hotel at .Dcs
| Moines, lowa.. They were last seen in John- 1
I son county of that State, In a covered wagon,
J going westward. A few days after their de
parture from that county, the body of a man
was found by the road-side, near where they
I were last seen, and from papers in bis pocket
I it was plain that it was the body of Boyd, and
that be bad been murdered. News ofhis death
went back to his friends In Galena, and then
I for the first time a suspicion that the party
had been kidnapped for sale Into slavery, was
excited; that suspicion grew into a certainty
by farther developments; and the people who
used to sec Boyd every day at his work cam-
I ing honest bread, offered, though he was a mu
latto, a reward of five hundred dollars for the
apprehension of therillalos who had committed
a double crime; and despatched two trusty men
to follow the criminals up. These facts we
published before, but since they were laid be.
fore our readers, wc have heard nothing of the
dreadful case. But the mystery is now solved.
[From the St. Joseph, Gazette, Oct. SO.]
Our city was thrown into considerable ex
citement yesterday by the arrival of two kid
nappers under arrest and guarded by citizens
of this county. The particulars so far as we
can gather them are about as follows: The
kidnappers, named Bolton and Goodwin, came
Into the lower part of the county a few days
ago, and stated that they had four negroes
which they desired to selL They succeeded in
effecting a sole, but before the money was paid
over, one of the negroes, Maty Boyd, informed
a gentleman that they bad all been kidnapped
in Galena, Illinois, and that one of the num
ber, qman, had been killed after crossing the
Mississippi riverjbecause he would not submit
to be ironed. This Information led to the ar
rest of the kidnappers, and they are now in
jail in tills city awaiting the arrival of persons
from Galena to identify the negroes. The wo
man. Mary Boyd, at the time of being kidnap
ped was nursing a child of a white woman
named Susan Goodlap, who lives with Mr.
IVigley, an attorney at law lu Galena, and the
child was brought here with the negroes, and
passed off here os Mary Boyd’s offspring. Jerry
Boyd was the name ot the negro who was kill
ed, and has a brother living In St. Louis, nam
ed Thomas Boyd. Maty Boyd was once the
property of a man named Vandcvcnter, a
clothing merchant in St. Louis.
Goodwin is a Canadian and a stranger in these
ports; Bolton married lu this comity and lives
In Caldwell county. They were arrested by
the slave owners to whom they attempted to
sell the kidnapped negroes.
A few days ago, the Muscatine (Iowa) papers
contained an account of a negro having been
murdered near that place, and the citizens of
fered a reward of SI,OOO for the arrest of the
murderers. It Is not improbable that the
murdered man was Jerry Boyd.
The Mayor of Galena was telegraphed to yes
terday, and request mode that some one who
could Identify the negroes be sent here to tes
tify against the kidnappers. If Bolton and
Goodinn have been guilty of the crimes charg
ed upon them, they should and will suffer the
extreme penalty of the law. We learn that it
was with difficulty the citizens of this connty
could be prevented from executing summary
punishment upon the prisoners, when the
facts as above related became known. They
will, probably, be sent to lowa for trial for the
murder of Jerry Boyd.
[From the Galena Courier, 24th.]
Die gentlemen who left here a few days ago,
in pursuit of the two negroes who had been
kidnapped from this place, a short time since,
returned this morning, bringing with them the
two negroes they were in pursuit of, and also
another which had been Kidnapped by the
same persons some six weeks before, from Du
buque, lowa. They were decoyed away by a
man calling himself George Wilder, who was
properly named John Goodwin, and who was
accompanied by his father-in-law, named Pe
ter L. Bolton, both residents of Caldwell
Countv, Missouri. These two men murdered
Jerry Boyd, one of the kidnapped negroes, on
the 30th of September last, near lowa City,
lowa. These men are respectably connected
in Buchanan County, Mo., about fourteen
miles south of the city of SL Joseph. They
were both arrested near St. Joseph. One of
them, Bolton, the first captured, was com
milted to jail, ha SL Joseph, on the charge of
kidnapping, in default of $2,000 bail. The
other, Goodwin, was taken charge of by the
gentlemen from this cltv, who brought him
within forty miles of Hannibal, Missouri, on
their way to this place, where he slipped bis
irons, and jumped from the car window while
tire train was running at the rate of thirteen
miles an hour, and escap&d. • I
About two months ago they succeeded In !
decoying away a woman from Dubuque, named I
Mary Baker, and lately took from this place 1
Mary Boyd? wife of Jerry Boyd, who was mar- I
dcred, and a mulatto girl about 14 years old, I
the daughter of a colored woman in this vicin
ity. When the gentleman from Galena arrived
where these negroes were, the bargain was
made, and the negro buyer was at Sl Joseph
getting the moneyto pay for them. The price
for them was $1,700. In the meantime the
fact of the murder of Jerry Boyd came out
through Mary Boyd, his wife, and information
was sent here of the whereabouts of the nc-'
grocs and the men.
How Jerry Boyd was murdered Is thus
We understand Mrs. Boyd states that when
the party had traveled three days ant from Ga
lena, they encamped by night about sixteen
miles from lowa City. Here some movements
made by Goodwin and Bolton excited the Ban-
plcioQß of Jeny that all was not right, and he
loaded his gnu and revolver in the presence of
the kidnappers. The next morning Goodwin
and Bolton held a consultation, Goodwin urg
ing the necessity of getting rid of Jerry by klu
lug him. While Jerry was sitting down near
the wagon, Goodwin stepped up to him saying,
“Jerry, I am afraid of yon,” and fired, first
shooting him in the breast and then lathe
head. The murder was comittcd In the pres
ence of Mrs. Boyd and the mulatto girl
Now let us hare justice! The crime of kid
napping, nndcr the notions of the Democratic !
party that negroes had no rights which white
people arc bound to respect, has become one
of alarming frequency. In Souilicrn Illinois,
where Democracy is the gospel, It Is rampant;
bnt growing bolder by the impnnity irith
which they have practiced their pet crime
there, the kidnappers have at lost ventured in
to the North. Now let us have justice. "We
call upon the Governor of lowa and upon Gov-
ernor Wood of Illinois to act promptly with
their requisitions!
A Short Itfetbod with Doochfaceii
To the list of Democratic questions answer
ed in my first communication, I will add a few
more, which pretty much exhaust the objec
tions raised by pro-slavery advocates.
Question.— Does the citizen of a State lose
his capacity for self-government when he coca
to reside in a Territory ? If not, why shouldn't
he be allowed to decide for himself whether or
sot be will have slaves ?
Anwes.—As the organic law of the Terri
tory was made, previous to his emigration, by
the people of all the United States, through
their National Legislature, be continues
to live under a form of government which he
had himself a voice in making. This is the
theory ef-our Constitution. If the prohibition
of slavery by Congress, bo an abrogation of
self-government, so,'also, is the passage of an
organic law wot prohibiting slavery, for It
would still necessarily contain many other
Q.—Leading Republicans aster! that no more
slave States will be added to the Confederacy
Admitting this to betrue, of what further use
is an organization whose purpose it is to check
the spread of slavery, when there Is no longer
any probability of its spreading ?
. A.—Leading KepubUcans'predicate their be
lief that slavery will spread no farther, on the
confident hope that their j»arty will hereafter
mold public opinion and shape the policy of
th? " “ '
le Federal Government. Annihilate the Re
publican party and its principles, and slavery,
having no obstacle in its way, would go
wherever It pleased—into the Territories, into
the States, Into Mexico, Into Central America
—everywhere it dealrci .Thccflect of Repub
licanism has already been to check the spread
of slavery. Remove the cause, and the effect
would cease. Climate did not save Missouri, ■
bordered as she was by lUlnols,;and lying di
rectly in the pathway of Northern emigration.
Republicanism has saved Kansas, 'half sur
rounded os she was by slavery, and wholly cut
off from the free States. There are more Kan
eases to be Bared. Slavery must not only be
hut Md in check.
Mr, Lincoln has said that the Republic
I cannot always endure half free and half slave,
j Did not Mr. Douglas, In his Chicago speech,
wholly refute this doctrine, when he showed
I that our confederacy had already, existed sev
enty years, during which time the free States
had increased from one to eighteen?
A,—itr.-Douglas proved Just what Mr. Lin
coln asserted. LC within seventy.years, the
free States, from being as ope to twelve, have
become as eighteen to fifteen, within seventy
years more they may be as twelve to one. This
is not u permanently enduring half free and
half slaVc.”- ’The simple truth is, go. Institu
tion, custom, form of society, or system of
government, can permanently endure in this
country, unless it be able to meet the criticism
of free speech and a free press, and on enllght*
cned conscience.
Q. —Is it not very unjoat to the slaveowner,
this establishinga rule in the Territories which
prohibits him from going there? —treating him
as though he ownedno part of the public-do*
main?- -
A.—Ko; It to not unjust. It is a nutter of
necessity—an alternative which the slave-own
er himself forces upon ns. Both freedom and
slavery caanoVciiat together In a alaveState

Their dress consists of a Wide Awake cap, red

Capt. J. J. Cole, and number sixty-six mem

such fine-looking men in physical appearance,

B S dy .fi? Dickinson on Douglas—
fustOr'll™ Con,,dcrc<l C'outend-
A meeting of the straight-out Democrats of
Broome County, K. T., was held, last Thurs
day evening, in the largo hall which the good
people of Binghamton, when they wish to give
formal utterance to their feelings on allmat
j tors of general local interest, nsnaßy appropri
ate for such a purpose.
The assemblage of Thursday is described by
the “ oldest inhabitant,” as having been the
most imposing and effective demonstration ot
the sort ever seen within the place. The first
speaker Introduced was Hon. James T. Brady,
Democratic candidate for Governor. He
nonneed Donglas as a traitor to the principles
of the Democratic party, and set forth the
Breckinridge platform as the only one on
which the Democratic party can stand here
) after. Supporting the Fusion ticket, he says,
! Gmn °t help Donglas, while it will keep the or
j ganization of the parly in the hands of the
Breckinridge men and give them control of
the National Democracy in ISGt The Breck
inridge State ticket, says Mr. Brady, is to be
kept in the field at all hazards.
This speech adds another to the many evi
dences that the Democrats are fighting for
ISOt They give np the contest for the pres- :
ent. In spite of the noise and clamor which
they keep np about it, they concede among
themselves that Lincoln is to be elected, and a
Republican administration is to come into
power. But each wing of the party aimtal

5 e w> extract from the speech •
Mr. Brady explained the opinions of those
who concurred with him as to slavery In (he
Territories, and said that the friends of Breck
inridge and Lane were contending and would
contend, for the Constltntion and the Union
“.j equality in the Union to all the States, lli
said that they had not made any compact with
the friends of Donglas or the committee of fif
teen In New York, which from patriotic mo
tives had recommended a Union ticket. But
they had concluded to support that ticket in
the ensuing election, because its meeetsmatd
not helpEouglat, hut might defeat Lincoln, and
would surely ostia JlrecUnridge. Our Slate
ticket Is to keep the field at all hazards Its
banner is to array those who contend for our
pnncjples. It Is to lie thcuuclensof a Nation
al Democratic party—the only one that can
survive the contest of ISCO, whatever may lie
Its result—the organization which, in ISttt
woidd control In any convention assembled to
meet a President, after tUe one now to be cbo
sen—a parlj not seeking for preferments or
spoils, and to which our friends at the South
mlsht confidently look for consistent ener
getic, and uncompromising support of all their
constitutional rights.
I now address myself to the honest Douglas
men, whom I consider to be misguided breth
ren, wandering away from the right path, led
on by “amockary, a delusion and a snare”
but whom I hope to see one day again incur
ranks, welcomed back as prodigal sons. I ask
each of them this question, and 1 he" a re
sponse from the friends of Mr. DoughS, espe
cially from those who advocate his cause. Wbv
is he running as a candidate?
I will tell yon my friends by whom he was
nominated—by a body for which Mr. Douglas
at last has great affection—he was nominated
by himself, lie is emphatically his own can
didate. He evidently means to continue In
the field, even if his end he not more giorions
than to “die in the ditch." Ho knows that
it is quite impossible for him to obtain one
electoral vote from a solitary State, except per
haps Missouri, unless Indeed the fusion ticket
succeed in Now York. Can any gentleman
Pjesent suggest the name of one state tehieh
*M'tf'‘*™to/°rC>ougtat’ It Is said to know
that Mr. Douglas, with the ability which his
admirers claim he possesses, has not, since the
hope of the Presidency first ostensibly allured
him, succeeded in doing anything valuable for
the American people, except affording one
more striking Illustration of the difference >-el
tween a politician and a statesman. The vonth
of America are indebted to Mm at a miminaa
an.ple When they desire to feel the distinc
tion between an ambitious Intriguer and

what he was running for. ThlsrenJnds me of

running tartly for revenge, and partly in order
to create hereafter a kind of Northern party—
the present design being simply to defSt Mr
Breckinridge. In the hope that Mr Doug
las has now, or of the future, I think
he is destined to be disappointed, and that no
chance or event in the contest can carry him
or his fortunes Into the District of Cotam

the lowest, to vote for him at all, anderiSS

Is, in a political sense, the state of sin and mls

No Democrat of any Intelligence will tcUmo
that Dongias has any expectation of gettin"
