We have ht"rrl of to many tttempU on the part of Republicans to "traile votes" with Democrat, that we consider it our duty to notice the fitct, and warn our friends in Mont gomery against the practice. The Journal has frequently declared of lute, that the Ke- pulilivan party has a certain majority in the county. . If this be so, why is it that we find members of thnt purty so anxious to "trade T Surely if they have a majority, they can elect their eniirf ticket, without resorting to a "tra ding" process, there in no need of asking Democrats to vote for the Republican camlr dates. Is not this "a self evident" truth? The truth is they know that they have not the ninjority they boast of they feel that the Dem ocraU will carry the county that our entire ticket will he elected if the members of both partiesrofrtHieraicArci ticket. This accounts for the Juurnatt attack upon our article advi. ting Democrats tn adopt the motto, "the ticket, the whole ticket, and nothing but the ticket," and this also accounts for the various methods, resorted to by certain Republicans to secure Democratic votes for this or that candidate on their ticket We again urge upon you, Democrat of Montgomery, to stand by each and every man on the ticket which your regularly chosen representatives selec ted for your suffrages at the coming election. We repeat that they are all good and true men, worthy the energetic support of every niau claiming to be either a Democrat or conservative. See to it then, Democrats, that you stand by the men representing the prin. eiples you profess to advocate stand by your nominees cast aside personal preferencesj aye, and personal friendships, if they come in conflict with your duty, and firmly resolve to labor and to vote for "the ticket, the whole ticket, Bnc nothing but the ticket" If yon will but do this, if you will but faithfully perform the duty of Democrats you will but labor as becomes ythite men op powed to the odious doctrine of "negro equal, ity" if you will but labor as is incumbent up on men who desire the faithful enforcement the laws of the land if you will but lulior men who truly and honestly desire to rniidi out sectionalism we shall triumph as certain as that the day of election comes round. This it required, and this we have confi dence to believe will be just what the Demo cracy will da Then, forward, Democrats, of Montgomery. Our Right to Vote. The editor of the Journal, this morning, ttatet that we are " without even the right to vote in Mtmlyumtry . " This is news, indeed, to us. For the "Deacon's" benefit, at well , as all others who may be concerned, we will state that the editor of the Emi'ikic has been a citizen of Ohio for the lust twentu-ieven yeart, and basl voted in this State, at every elec tion, save one, for serrn yean pant ; and what it more, having never lost hit residence, by temporary absonce, will, if he be alive on tliut day, vote the entire Democratic ticket, at the Second Ward polls, in thit city, on the 2d Tuesday of Octo)er next The " Deacon will please bike notice. Hay One of the effects of Morton's ( Who't , . Moiitok ?) speech last night was that the out landish sign on the JViwaia was so agitated that about half of it uloutjhfd off from the tide of the house, and hngs down like a dirty rag fruiu & Log pen. By-the-by, shaking of Moutok, we believe the last time he visited nt in the guise of a partizau orator he was can didate for Governor of Indiana. Ut waa leaten in the contest, and the Democracy this county elected their ticket. Did the Hon gentleman, (who has fullcu a peg since then in position, being now the Republican candi. date for Lieut. Governor, ouly,) come here again to effect the tame result T A very good coiiiineiii erucut was made towards having matters go right by the " workin' off " of about half the heathenish sign on the .Vywum. 0 V, M. should hit it another lick. At our co laborer nays: "Things it workin'. At the Nigwam! Mr. MotToN did not siieak at the Depot ' we understood yesterday afternoou, nor did tpeak at the Court House, as announced the Journal of Tuesduy, uor did he speak the C s Engine House, as that paper of yester day ttcd he would do, but he did speak at the Nigwum. Republican meetings art rathej perrgiiualiug, hereabouts. At the Nigwam! Attempting to Bolt the State and District Platforms. DIMrlct I'lalform... i? of as Tht Jottnal of yesterday morning, In aa article headed "Mr. Cmujmuo and tht Fngl tive Slave Ijtw," winds Bp as follows, as to Mr. C.'t position : - "It dnean't make any difference what the Iowa man tars, or what the Ashtabula Senti nel may pretend to know, Mr. Oais-h-tad is ao an extremist, he it an old Whig and holdt to the eJiirmrinet maintained by thatnohl rttrty, principle which having been adopted by the Kepnblicant, and expressed in their National Platform, wprirale rminitmt of individual! nf tht party in the Wettern Rrtrrr or 0ny when el ma, ran be received at ortkodog mmlrtt they conform In that autharitatirt trpotition of tht Ilepublican doctrine t." Thit it about the coolest thing wt hart area for a long time. ' Biamix Caiiotttio aa "old Whig, and holdt tht doctrines maintained by that noble party I" After tht abort, wt should not bt surprised if tht editor of tht Journal himself should pat in a similar claim. At for the ttatement of the Journal that Mr. C. "is an old Whig, and holdt to tht doc trine maintained by that aoble party," we deny it, and challenge tht editor to furnish the proof for tht truth of hit assertion. . The articlt does not deny tht truth of the txtract wt published on Monday, written by a personal and political friend of Mr. C, claim in gthat in 1854, he declared that "if to op pone the odiout and unjutt principlri em bodied in (At Fugitive Slat Act, and to de nounce the Kansas and Nebraska swindle, Ait", ur aii Aaoi.moxisT, so let it c" Mark the language. Ur. CaAHiHCAD did not merely condemn certain provisions of the law, but the entire law ; nor waa he satisfied with merely eondemniny, at the J'lurnal inti mates, the "provisions" of the act, but boldly and.'boastfully declared that."IF TOJOPPOSE'' them, makes him "AN AHOMTIOMST, 80 LET IT BR" Wat this Whig doctrine T By the very sentence which we have quoted by the very language used hy Mr. C'saiouiad he gives conclusive evidence that ha himself at that time, knew and felt that the position he assumed in the remark quoted, placed him not only outside of the Whig party, but into the ranks of the Abolitionist. The Journal tayt "it doesn't make any difference what the Iowa man says, or what the Ashtabula Sentinel may lire- tend to know." Does it make any differ ence what the Journal "says," or "pretends to kuow?" It declares that "Mr. Cbaio iif.ad is not an extremist' he is an old "Whig," but according to its own reasoning, it makes no difference what its declarations may be. We claim, however, that it does make a difference what the Sentinel says. That paper is an exponent a fair, truthful and candid exponent of the Republican party so admitted in the Northern portion of the State. The editor has no interest in Mr. Cb.uuuead's success, but the interests of the party of which both he and Mr. Ckaiuhkad are members. He spoke in flattering terms of Mr. C, and urged his election. He had a right to tpeak thus, having formerly been a resident of, and publisher of an opposition paper in this city, and a political friend of the Republican candidate. What he said, was said on hit "personal knowledge" of the roan of whom ho was speaking. At for the Gazette t Iowa correspondent, he gives Mr. CaAimiEAD'i own language, and it hat come to a pretty pass indeed, if as the Journal says, "It doesn't make any difference what" that is. We, have also heard the name of the writer. Ho too, like the editor of the Sentinel, is a political friend of the Republi can nominee fur Congress. Unsolicited, he wrote to the editor of the Oatette, a paper sup porting Mr., Craighkad and published in this city, and placed on record the opinions of Mr. C. which we quoted. Had it not been for this correspondent, the people hereabouts would not have known it We doubt not that the candidate has cause to exclaim, ".save me from my friends." The Journal further Bays, that Mr. Craki n cad " holds to the doctrine maintained by the Whig party." If such be the case, why is he advocating the election of Jacob Buink- Knuopp ? Why is he advocating the election of JoaKPH M. Root? Why did he allow himself to lie placed on a platform endorsing these two old-line Abolitionists, and denouncing the Fugitive Slave Law ? Is that evidence of his being a Whig?" Sai.moh P. CuAsr, a man elected United States Senator by the late Re publican legislature, sayt that, although not nominated himself by the Chicago Con vention, hit "principlei" were adopted. The Journal says that the principle! of the old Whig party have "been adopted by the Repub licans." How can these two statements be of at he lo at reconciled ? Or will the Journal now claim that the principlei of Sai.mo P. Chask are dentical with those formerly advocated by the old Whig party, including the Journal t Is any one of common sense silly enough to be lieve that such it the tase? There it not man in Montgomery county, or in the Third District, who honestly thinks that the doctrines of Chase now, were the doctrines of Clay when living, and tht Journal will not be able to make the people believe it Clay himself denied it, in his speech in the Senate, in 1850 where he denounced Cu ami at an Abolitionist And yet we are now told that the principles of the Republican party the principles now advocated by Chase and Skwahu, Suhneb and Wade, are the same at tht principles of the old Whig party the principles of Clay and Webster, of Fillmore aodCiUTTNiiEir. That the Journal wishes that it was so, we doubt not, but it it so, we deny, the record the party denies, aud the men who control Republican party deny. But not only does the Journal falsely and knowingly assert that the principlei of present Republican party and the old Whig party are the tame, but it hat tht impudence to declare that only such principles at are "ex pressed in their (Republican) National Plat form" "can be received as orthodox." we to understand by thit, that Mr. Craiuheao and tht editor of the Journal bolt the Repub lican State Platform T bolt the Republican State nominees? and yet further, bolt very platform upon which Mr. Craiuheao nominated at Genuantown ? Thit certainly it the only inference to be drawn. The are not to hold tht Republican nominee responsible for hit own declared opinipni, tht endorsement of hit own political friends, for his advocacy of the Republican State ticket, for hit endorsement of the Republican State Platform, or even fur the very Platform upon which ht accepted tit nomination. not such a position silly in the extreme Does it not prove beyond question, thai Republic party hat Ukeu a position, in District, at well at in tht State, which Crahirbab dare not endorse before men whose vntet ht it soliciting ? And dor it not prove with equal force, what we hart all along claimed, that a majority of the peoplo of this District art conservative men, and will not sustain "he ultra "extreme" position attained hy tht Republican party in thit Stale? Moat certainly. If wt have, through the Instrumental ity of hi own political friends and his own language, done Mr. CRAinnrAn injustice by classing him at a radical, we are willing lo eorreet it upon the proper prool . Not on tht ttatement of tht editor of the Journal, lor wt do ant regard him, nor do many of his party associates hereabouts, as a reliable and crrdi- talnt Witnert. What wt demand it this i Let Mr. Craiohead, openly and abovelmard takt a position against tht ultra "extreme' candidate! on the Republican State Ticket. Iet him denounce, in proper Lrrms, the ex treme resalution adopted at the late Republi can Slate Convention. Let him frankly ttep off of the platform on which he was nominated, which endorses the Republican Slate nominees and State Plat form. Let him cut loose from the association of snch men aa C'B.mt, Gmnivua, k Co., and cease participating with them in Conventions. ICt him show by hit actions, by the doc trines he advocates, thnt he stands hy Clay, and Wrbsteb, and tlie old Whig doctrines, Irftt him frankly and pnblicly, a a candi date should, answer the following questions : Whether he intend voting for Jai-ob Bkik- tERRorr, the abolition candidate for Supreme Judge? W hether ht endorses his decision in the Oberlin Rescue case? Whether h endorses hit decision ffivinu taddle-vulored negroes tht right to vote and to nolo otnee r Whether he intends voting for Abraham Lihihlk against Stkpukx A. Doi ulah? Whether he endorse I.ikcoi.m s "irrepres sible conflict" doctrine? Whether he endorse the action of the late Republican Shite Convention, in denoun cing the Fugitive Slave Act as "abhorrent to the moral tense of the civilized world f Whether he intends voting for any Demo cratic candidate, and, if to, whom ? Whether he recognizes Johhi'a R. Oid dikiis as a true Republican ? Whether ht regards the Ashtabula Sentinel at an exponent of Republican doctrine ? "Things is Working." FORWARD THE THIRD!

About two hundred and fifty votes were polled, of which the Republican candi date received ninety-five. The ingluriuua fiz zle at Jobnsville, on the i.ilh, was, as predicted by Simon, a harbinger of the result which followed in baturuay s election. Although the issue was not eonduoted on mere political ground, yet at the gentleman who rulet Jackson, had pledged himself to ei ther elect ounon, or make him a present ol the best beaver hat in rvew lork, the question was, whether he (Simon) should have the office or the new hat It was decided that he should have the latter alternative by a majority offif-ty-even.

Meeting at the Nig-Wam. Considering that for several days past it wet publicly anno treed that Hon. 0, ?. Motv toii, of Indiana, would address tht Republi cans of Iayton, rather a small audience war in attendant at tht Nigwam bat night Tht hall Wat not full by any meant, and tht larger number of thou preaenl were members of tht Wide-A a-akft dub, - which I always held ia retdinesi to furnish a small crowd, and might justly he denominated tht portable audience. Mr. Mortov waa Introduced at tht "next Lieutenant Governor of Indiana" Wt rath er gnest tht elector of the Hooaier But have something to Ray in that matter, and wt have no doubt will fail to confirm the announce ment of the gentleman who introduced tht speaker. Mr. Morton is rather a pleasant speaker eloqukbl in misrepresentation fluent in epi thet and denunciation an enthusiast on tht slavery question, and withal tomdwhat of a wag. Tht Slavery question was tht harden of hi long the Alpha and Omega. He de nied the right of the people of Territory to rpgnlate their owa domestic affairs in their own way, subject to tht Constitution of the United State, and claimed that Congress had entire and exclusive control over the affair of a Territory, while a Territory. In other words that the citizens of a State, on moving to a Territory left liehind them tht power of self government, which they possessed at citizens of a State, and come under the especial guar dianship of Congress, composed of men whose ideas of local government are as different as the manners, habits and customs of the people of their various Districts. Is the gentleman not aware that all prop erty in the Territories subject to and depend ent on thcjloeal law ii protection. Congress never yet passed a law for the protection of property of any kind in any organized Terri tory. It has never passed a criminal code for the Territories. Persons and property of ev ery description are dependent upon the local law for protection. The right to control the domestic relations of State or Territory has never been delegated to Congress. The rela tions of husband and wife, parent and child, servant and master, are all domestic, and hence are dependent upon the local law, and not the action of the Federal Government Local and federal affairs are separate and dis tinct The ore belongs to the management of the people, the other to their servants, the members of Congress. The Senker dwelt pathetically upon the subject of free and slave labor; but he care fully avoided any allusion to the fact thnt the free colored man of the Northern States en ters into direct competition with the white la borer. He neglected to tell his hearer that the cardinal principle of the Republican prty was opposition to and in favor of the uncon ditional repeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, tha effect of which would be to locate in our midst, not only all the fugitive slavet from the South, who now pass on to Canada, but all the worn-out negroes who would be manu mitted by their masters. Yes, free white men of Ohio, the Republicans wish to make your State the lazar house for the reception of tht worn out negroes of the South, and thus bring them into direct competition with the free white laborer. The speaker furthermore neglected to tell his hearers, that the Republican party were not only in favor of a policy that would bring thousands of negroes into competition with the while labor of the North, but that when they got them here were in favor of extending to them the elective frauchise, and placing them upon an equality with white men. This is the doctrine of the Republican party, and they cannot deny it; Mr. Morton did not at tempt to do so, but passed it by w thout a ref erence. The gentleman unblushingly referred to his apostacy; said he had c'd with the Demo cratic party up to 1854, and that prior to that time the party hud done a great many good things, but since 1H54 (the time at which he left the party) it had accomplished nothing! How modest? The Empire Will Answer. We copy the fallowing from the JoMrnai "The Kmpire condemns tho Republican Judges for declaring tluit under the Constitu tiuu persons wore than half white are entitled to the right ol aunrage. Mow, it Uol. binitb should be elected Supreme Judge, and tho question should again be presented to the Court, will J udgt Smith, on the Bench, give an opinion averse to tho right of the more than half white to vote at election ? Will tlie Empire answer? The editor know, of course." As the Journal asks u the position of our caniddate for Supreme Judge, on negro vo ting, we will answer it by referring the editor to the annexed resolution, to be found in the platform adopted by the Convention, by which Mr. Smith was nominated, and upon which platform he accepted the nomination ; and we will say further, that from what we know of our candidate, be it not the man to accept the nomination upon a platform, and then bolt it doctrines. But read the resolution: Retained, That ice are oppoted to tht pol icy of allowing to negroet, mulattoet, or oth er oertont of "vitiblt admixture" of African blood, the right of tuff rage, or any other po fltfcaf ngut, wcsinoy inui iie turn vj tjnio thai! be made, and her dettine controlled by white men exclutively, and fir the paramount xnleretti of the whit race.
