' And still the Herald cited this as an apology for its course in sup porting the avowed enemies of one sec tion of our country ! Let t yidid men con sider well these facte. The other instance cited by the Ilrruld is the Presidential election of 1836. At tl at election, however, Mr. Xnu Jiuren, a " Northern ' candidate, carried, in . the South, Virginia, North Carolina, L uu's iaua, Misaitiiiippi, A livhania, Missouri and Arkunsas; aud Gen. Harrison, of Ohio, neeived the votes of three slave States: Delaware, Maryland and Kent ncky. At the same election, Richard M. Johnston, I of, the South, received the votes of several Northern SiateB : Maine, New Hump hire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania. Iilinois and Michi- pan; and Francis M.

Fellow-citi- ztns, it is not possible that you can le. deceived by ihe specious libel npon the serve that noble heritage Which was ptir history of our country, which has luen chased with the treasure and blood of void of patriotism as of truth, the noi- 1 .

The present aspect of parties reveals one serious defect in oi.r constitution. Il is this mode of clectiag a President by electors, instead of a ; opulnr vote What kind of hope wou'd ibis Republican pnr y have if the voice i.f he people could be hiard? It would then ch-urly stand as the third party. The entire S mth oj pose Fremont and Dayton. Twenty-nine cVctoral v.ts cast in the. North against t!;ein will insure their defeat; and half a million votes would give that little more than the vote of Ohio or ''Pennsylvania. Now takii g the worst calculation for the Democrats evtr made by any Republican, and there are votes scattered through the North, against Fremont and Dayton, more than sufficient to elect twice tweii'y nine electors. But, in truth, if Fremont and D..yton should be elected, not only would , the entire S mthbe in ..posiiion to hew , but they would in reality have more than two-thirds of the voters of the Union against them; and seeing this, wh would answer for the ousequeuces ? What a commentary upon the miscalled Repub lican party ! Fellow-citizens, our duty in the prem ises is plain. We must go to the polls on the. fourth day o" November in xt, ig nore all sectional issues, select meu of large experience, national in their feel iugs and sympathies, and of unsullied reputation; in other words, we must cast or suffrages for James Buchanan and John C.- Breckinridge, aud thereby pre those who hive gone before us tuk lib- irties or the feoplb aad tiie vmon of 1 UNION. 1 A Guilty Conso'encs.

" A SHY AT TIIE CATS. We stated a long time ago that there would .be. trouble some ra ou!ight night among the rats that congregite 011 the long shed in the rear of our dwelling. We irave notice that we had wasted more wood 011 them tha i we had to spire that we had used up all the brick bats that we could lay our hands on thai we had thrown away something less than a ton of coal and had abashed a window on the opposite block. A'l th's proving of no avail, we said We had got a double barrelled yean, and percussion ca;s, and powder and shot; and some morning, after a moonlight night, sotneliody's cat wouldn't come home to 'ireakfast, tr if they did, i' would be troubled with the dum:s. We rave fair notice of our grievances, and what me intended to do about them. Well, the moau camu up on M mdav iiitrht. with her great round face, and went walking up the sky with a q'K-enly. step, throwing h r mantle of brightness over the whole earth. We love the calm of a mom- light night in the spring time, and the cats of our part of towu love it, too; from the heds around National Garden from the kitchen and the stables creeping stealth ily and sof.

B.tng went the right hind barrel, and bang went the left hand barrel. S-icli scampering, such leapiug otf the outbuil dings, over the top of the woodshed, wis nevif ineu before. Th-. echoes of thi firing h d hardly died away when the whole assemblage was broken up and dispersed. "Ttiomas," said we the next morning to the boy who chores for us, "there seems to be a cat asleep ut ou the shed; go out and scare it away." Thomas clambered on the shed', and went up where the cat lay, and lifting it up bv the tail halloed back to us; . , 'Tne cat can't be waked up; it can't be scared a ay it's dead." ' After examining it awhile, "somebody j has-been a shootiu' of it, by t hunder!"' said he, as he tossed it down in the yard. . "You don't say so," said w. Taat was the old Maltese, the chairman of the eout un ion, but he won't preside over another very soon. We don't know where he boarded, or who claimed the ti tle of him.
