of euporting Mr. Trimble. In such 'slate-
mrnta I it not a shadow of truth . But the
aelf-evident dismay of the Lueoljco party, at
their
certain everwhclnvng defeat on the
aecond Tuesday of (October, instigate the
learlers to any falhood, and to make any as
acrtion, no matter how bold, to secure a ample
vote, no fcrncss ana oarciacea le me tmio

jhia no effect. It will not have any effect,
abroad.
Here, In Colnmbtts, Mr. Chaae has bitter"

Statesman ia one of them. He was once the
friend orM. Chaae, and lauded him to the
lakice, So he ha been the friend and enemy
of Mirtin Vnn Buren, Lewi Cas, Judge
Spauldlng, Thoa. L, Ilamrr, and many oilier
of the beat men in the country. Whenever
he faile to bring men to hi own view, no
matter of what party, he abuaea and hunta
them down with a vengeance "fierce aa

Let the American pony come to Columbui;
and we will show them who constitute the
acting Trimble party here. They are few in
number, and the few of that number who have
ever been inaide of n Council of the Ameri
can Order, have, by their conduct, ahnwn
themselves ur.fii to be ranked aa American.
You can see them, almost any day, in close
communion with the rankest L'cofoeoa in
Ohio aaiiociating vilf. the very men ,who
hive renounced tho American parly as assae
.in.s, murderer and villains! 'And why ibis
association) What is lttobject! Why en
deavoring to distract the American puny, and
lea. I it from ihe auj port of the Republican
ticket the very ticket which Ihe American
party nominated! fur no one has cvr dared
to asert thai the Americana did not control
the I3'h of July Convention. And these men
who wants to be called Armrlcana, would
glory In the election ol Mediil over Chuse!
and aome, beyond any doubt, will vote for
Miilill the man who every day, from the
. lump ia denouncing the American Order
with a malicioiiablnernraawithi'Uta parallel!
These, be It remembered, are the men who
conxlitme the I riinbi party!

haa appeared. None of them; however, ciimc
from the American parly. No one has the
courage to sign name to any circular, nor
to give any of them a public circulation.
They aro nil cNndektinely iaaued, and bear
evidence ot Lcoforo dictation and Paternity.
The nuibors are ashamed and afraid to attach
their namee to audi villainy infamy! Can it
be oosiible that any one who haa ever acted
with Ihe American puriy would be an treach

According to notice previously given th? !
mns meeting of tho friend of Trimble
in Belmont County came off on the 26. ult.
The day was met at the threahold and usher
ed in amid the roar of cannon and the
smell of gunpowder About 8 o'clock,
a. M-, however, a heavy aliower of rain com
menced falling, brought on, no doubt, by the
roaring of cannon, or the burning of gunpow
der, or just because it could, or for aome other
reason equally cogent. At any rate the rain
fell w hich prevented all speaking out of doors.
During the recess of the Court for dinner,
the Court-house waa occupied, and the peo
ple then and lliero assembled were addressed
by Messra. C. L. J'oorman, of Bell-Aire city,
and A. Banning A'orton, of Columbus. We
did not hear Mr. P. except for a few minutes
at the close of hia remarki, and we reerel
that we did not, for hia appearance ia prepos
aessing, and hia manner convincing. II
waa followed by the Wellsburg Brans Band,
which discoursed some most excellent mu
sic, after which Mr. Norton .arose and ad-
dreaaed the meeting. Ol Mr. Norton's style,
we have to aay that It waa pleasant, end if
his matter waa truthful, he would make an
effective BUimper, but unfortunately ll was
not.
If all our readera were fumiliar with the
columns of the Locofoco organ of this Coun
ty, it would be unnecessary for ua to tell
them from what quurier the orator derived
his cliargea against Mr. Chase. It was but
a reiteration o' all the false charces which
have fiom time to time appeared in the Loco-
r, . , .....
foco popera in the Stale, and which h.Hve
been, each in turn, refuted. For instance:
he aaid that Mr Chute obtained hia seat in
the U. S. Semite thruiiuh a corruut bargain

l7 which bargain the latter were lo vole in
favor of fTie loriner having thtir scats in the
Legislature, if they (Pugh Si Pierce) wou d
agree lo vi.to for Mr. Chase tot Scnuior.
Blr Norton charged thai Mr. Chase wua privy
to that contract Now let u nee how that
matter stood before Mr. Norton '$ speech.
The charge u na made in Ihe Statesman, and
copied in ihe Gwlte; the Statesman "took it
back," and ao did the GatHte. Mr. Chase in
hia apeech here pronounced It entirely wiih
nut luundaiion, and on the aurne evening, in
a public apeech in thia place, Joifx Daven

fourA Mr. Davenport deniea the charge
But Mr. Aoi ton, in the lace of ail this,
must aland up before an intelligent audience
and reiterate thia libellous charge. Verily,
he must have an exalted opinion of the intel

Below we give a communication from
gentleman who was present at a Democratic
meeting in BeolUvillc, on Wednesday of last
week. Messrs. Lawrence and Morris were
hurd pressed by Messrs. Sinclair and Ells
worth, on the slavery question; so hard, in
fact, that they found it necessary to read
Go'. Slianm n out of tlioir party to avoid the
Ddium of his Westport Kpecch. Tho Loco
nre mav altemnt concealment as much as
they please, but that apeech is genuine, and
lias hxed a strgina on tlie Ohio JJemocracy
tin I it cannot wipe out. Tne writer of the
lollowiinr is one of the best men in ttelmoi.t
county, and his statements are perfectly re-
liublo. Whut cull the Ni brusku De-nocracy
of this County answer to the questions in re
ference to Democratic orthodoxy ! Democra
cy in these latter days tmiet be terribly fallen
when it differ ao materially in adjoining
counties. In Belmont ihe p.ity swears up
on the Nebraska Bill that Gov. Shannon nev
er muda the Westport apeech, while in
Monroe, they know he did muke it, and ihcre
lore insist ihut he duea not belong to I lie
party.
In regard to tho know-nothing i bargee of
Bro. Morris, against the Gov , we only know
that we have often heard it usserled tl.at
Shannon waa a member ol the Metropolitan
Council of K. N't-, in Washington Ciiy. The
editor of a N;w Y'ofk paper (the Courier J
Enquirer, we think,) says that he has in his
posaession the prool thut Stiunr-on is a mem
ber of the Order. But ne give the communi
cation, perfectly ealUtud that it ia a II correct.

Nebraska fraud, in unmeasured te.mt Mr.
M'-rri touk ui casioii to resd G-iv. Shannon
plumb out ol the Demucriliu party. He ssid
he believed Mr. Shannon to be a Know Noth
ing, and had communicated this opinion to
Isaac Eato i, in Washington City lust sum'
mer, and had informed him, that if he really
behoved the Governor was a Know Nothing
that ia if he believed hi own opinion he
would ii ao all hia influence with the uvrn-
ment to defeat hi appointment a Governor
ot'Kai.aaa. One thing he was quit certain
of, the Governor waa a Sam Houston man,
anolhei one "e regarded aa equally true, thai
he had been active in getting up thelnde.jendent

claim oi Sam Houston These thing luken
in coniuciion, proved conclusively to his
mind, that, Mr. Shannon was a Know Noth

queaiiolia here preai m themselves to' t-ie
mind of Ihe pasting observer, for considera
tion. And firstly: wiro not Messrs Law

ful blows against alavrry, and the Kansas St
Nebraska acts!
Secondly: nugl t not Ihoae gentleman

pronounces the published report a base for

We have been informed that a report wa4
circulated moat IndustrioiiKly, in reference to
expression said to have been made by
Gen. Warfel, which will be found below.
Thi coming out jnai on Ihe eve of the e-
lection, Is calculated todo bim an injury, and
we are glad to be able lo lay the following
letter before our readers. This slanderous
charge will no doubt appear in the Locofoco
prlnta of the District thia week, if it does not
will be because they have heard that it le
proven to be a buBe slander, and think it may
react powerfully in Gen. Warfel'b favor. Il
hardly probable that he would repudiate
the par'y frienda he has acted with for sot
many yeara.
September 28th 1855.
New Atkfms, Harrison Cointy,
Mr. Cowin:
Sir .
The political enemies of Charles War
fell the Candidate on the Republican ticket
for Senator, are circulating a foul report like
this: That aaid WarfeLX. should have at o ted
that he could be elected "independent of the
votes of the freeeoilcra or Irish." This, Sir,
Mr. Warle.ll positively denies, and his word
will htnud against any other man's in the two
counties for truth and vorartty. Mr. Warfell
haa been fur years identified with the free--oil
parly, and hia nearest neighbour regard
him as a gentleman and a christian.
The denial ol the above ia from his own

I. DAY.
Settled at Last.—Governor Shannon
in favor of Slavery!
After an awful amount of fuUifying on the
part of Ihe Democratic Preee of Ohio about
Shannon's speech, il i settled conclusively,
that he did deliver the Westport Speech
verbatim et literatim, as we published it.-
Hide your heads now, ye mnndaciou prints,
il ye have a particle of shame about ypu.
The Cincinnati Enquirer undertook to de
ny that Shannon made the speech attributed
lo him, whereupon the Missouri Ddmocrat, in '
which the report of that speech firBt appear
ed, makes the following reply:
" From the foregoing we . .pcre&'ve ihat
