Read! Read! Read! l-'ORNKY & II ASK IN ON THIS STUMP BucliauiiiiN Treachery Exposed! A large Aiiti-Lecnmpton meeting was lit-M in the lXth Congressional District, iew' York, at Tairy town, on Tlitfrsday fit'trinoon, which was addressvd by "Col. Forney, anti-Iecompton Democrat, of Phil aJflpbia, and John li. Haskin, Anli-Le-cooirtton Democratic member of Congress ftuin that Dls,tiiut, alid the People's anti Woiupton mndidate for re-eleciion . The meeting was large and enthusiastic. ; From the speeches of the gentlemen named, we can iii'y make tho following extracts from that of Col. Forney's: DICIIANA.n'b POSITION ON THK KANSAS QUK8- -rioK in 1866. Mr. Forney, referring to the position of lr. 13u-lmiian at the lime of hi nom ination lor the Presidency , said: J No man felt more deeply in reference to Kansas than did Mr. Buoluuwn. No man talked mows li-erly about it. In his letter of acceptance ol the nomination, and in (he speech he delivered to the Committee upon it in his parlor at Lancaster, (at which 1 happened to be present, ) he laid stubs upon the great principle that the will of the majoiity ehould prevail. Why, he said lo me a thousand times, "The Svuth must vow for me, and the North must be secured; and the only way to secure the North is to convince those gentlemen that when 1 get in the Presidential chair I will do rlsiht with the iwople in Kansas. 1 am notv GG jears of age. 1 have reached that lime of life when I cannot have any ambition for a ve-election, and if 1 have, the only way lo secure it is to be strong wiil my own people at home. 1 watched this struggle lrom my retirement in London; I have seen what I conceive 10 be the mistakes of others. I am hot responsible for the administ ration of Presi dent Pierce; therefore 1 will inaugurate a new system; 1 will show to those eii lie men that a PennsylvaMW President will stand firm to the pledges of a Pennsyl vania gentleman and a Pennsylvania Dem ocrat." Now, fellow-citizens, in that let ter of acceptance, if you will refer to it 11 is not necessary forme lo produce it here you will find that he stated distinctly Unit the people of the Territory oi Kansas should bo protected in the sacred right of suffrage, unawed by any influence what ever, and that the will of the majority should prevail. HOW PENNSYLVANIA WAS CARRIED. We went into the canvass. It fell to my lot to be at the head of the State Demo cratic Committee of Pennsylvania. And above all others in that campaign was the great principle of popular sovereignty. Applause. That was the standaid which marshaled the way. That was ihe Hhibbolelh lhat was the war cry. From Lake Erie to the Delaware river from Pittsburg to Philadelphia in every village and town in the State everywhere that I could induce a pen to write, or a tongue to spe.ik, that was the theme upon whieh thoBe pen6 wrote and those tongues spote. Why, gentlemen, Mr. Buchanan had no confidence or reserve upon ibid subject, lie was public, he was open, he was unre served in his declaration to everybody. He sent to tho traduced John Hickman, in an adjoining county. He told him. through hs friends and agents: "You, Mr. Hick man, occupy a peculiar relation; you voted for the Topeka Constitution, you de nounced the Kansas-Nebraska bill; you were ooposed to the repeal of the Mis souri Compromise line; the Democratic parly of your district have nominated you; the Republicans like you; they believe in you. Now, 1 want you to take the stump, and go before your people, and pledge me, James Buchanan, that I iniend standing by, and if necessary, dying by this prin ciple of Popuhti Sovereignty." For.my self, if I could descend to the baseness of republishing private letters, I might fill a Vflume with similar pledges from similar authority. Why, genilmen, when the distinguished Secretary of iSiaU, Mr. Cobb, who, lrom having been a super tine Union man, has been converted into a fire eater, etjual to Mr. Chaubert himself when Mr. Cobb came into Pennsylvania, and trav ersed our State from end to end, from county to county, talking to delighted audiences all the lime, what was the bur den of his theme? Why Popular Sover eignty. 1 would take the Army and the Navy, I would use every power of the Federal Government, I would surround the Ter ritory but what the people of Kansas should vote, and by their vote) tho des tinies of the future fitate should bo deci ded. Whenever a Southern orator came into Pennsylvania and cnUVd, upon me, 1 said to him: "Now, Sir, I bar but one thinglo say to you; we have but i single thing before the" people; every' day is ira kiri" the campaign more and more doubt ful;evcry day is making die popular feel ing more and more intense; Mr. Buchanan . himself feels that everything1 depends upon the prudence, the sagacity, and the spirit of concilliation to whieh this cam paign is conducted, and for God's sake lake care what you say about Kansas; leave vour violent Sou-hern feelings at home; you must not come to threaten; you Gov ernor Johnston, and you Mr Scott, of Rich mond, and you Mr. Extra Bill Smith, and you Mr. Secretary Floyd, all of you, must remember that if you lose this battle here, you loose it altogether; it will be your Joss, and tberofoie you must allaw us to mnnag it in our own way. And they did aocede to that policy, without any protection, and gladly. There was no deception in that fight, at least so far as I was concerned I sowed the State with piivate letters and private pledges upon this question. There is not a county in Pennsylvania in which jot letters may not be found, almost by hundreds, pledging Mr. Buchanan, in his name, and by his authority, to tho full, complete and practical recognition of the tidil of the people of Kansas to decide upon their ewn aflairs. Applause. THK PRESIDENT AFTER HIS ELECTION n-KDfiES TO GOV. WALKKK. As if for the purpose of accumulating .ledge upon pledge, as if for the purpose U piling up a pyramid of promise ujjon ..;: .-f..,rt'. what did he do next? He Wked around to se whom he should :?et j lu .'o to Kansas for lur purpose oi seining the vexed quea.iou which had rendered Kansas, what it has been , graphically termed, "the graveyard of 'Governors.' He sought no inferior man; he would hot be tempted lo take an ordinary man. lis selected a geulleiiMMi, a t)inUMman, who had been presented by a large portion or the leading and prominent men of the South for a seat in his Cabinet, who had for years represented his State in the councils of the nation. He selected Robert J. Walker. And whet) he called upon Mr. Walker, and asked him to proceed lothe Territory, Mr. Walker said to him, "Why, Mr. Bu chanan, that would finish me forever; it has ruined every man who has gone there; it will ruin me. 1 have reached that time ot life when 1 cannot afford to risk all nay prospec.8, and probably the peace anil happiness of my family. And he said further, as if gifted with a knowledge of the future, "1 cannot run the risk of being most probably betrayed and deserted by lire Administration that appoints me." Mr. Buchanan said to him, "Mr. Walker, it you wi'l go there, you will settle this question in a few weeks. Everything is ready; here are you instructions I pledge you my word that everything you desire, you shnll have.". Mr. Walker, as if in spired by a sublime suspicion, said, "Mr. Buchanan, I will not go to Kansas until you allow me to meet your Cabinet, face to face, and ascertain from that Cabinet in person whether they will agree that I shall go there and carry out the pledges cl Ine campaign of 1856." Accordingly a meeting of the Cabinet of Mr. Buchanan was called. At the meeting every member of the Cabinet was present. Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Walker were present Mr. Buchanan in the chair Gov. Walker said, "I have desired this meeting because I have determined not to go to Kansas unless I Live full instruc tions to carry out those pledges and those principles; il there is any opposing voice I will not go; x uo not want w go; it is uy uu mean- an enviable position; but if -1 have the permission and consent of you, gentle men, for this 1 have asked, I will go." The Cabinet was polled; but one member of the Cabinet objected to the programme laid down bv Gov. Walker. 1 need not mention his name. Gov. Walker said, "That settles the question, gentlemen; I do not wish to go; a single negative is sum cient and I will retire from the field." But they took that member of the Cabinet into an adjoining room, and there they convinced him that Gov Walker was right. They returned and gave Walker his in struciious. He went to Kansas with his instructions in his pocket, and accompanied by a man well known to the country, Mr Stanton, who went out with similar tuedtres Now, after this plain statement of the facts. I will come down to my own part ot this campaign. ' UK. FOKNKV ON HIS PERSONAL EXPERIENCE CONVERSATIONS AND DISAGREEMENT WITH THE PRESIDENT ASTOUNDINQ DEVELOP MENTS. My ambition was to assist and build up my good old Slate, to push forward her ureal interests, and assist in the develop ment ol her industry to do that which we must all do, at least if we desire success for the older you grow you should be stronger at your own home to build yourselves up in your own counties and own Stales, and when you do that you will be respected and strong at the seat of Federal power. Therefore it was that in the year 1857 I started tne newspaper which now bears my name at its mast head. I did this for the purpose of advocating Mr. Buchanan's policy throughout. I had abundant pledges as to his course, but be fore publishing that paper I took care to write to Mr. Buchanan's Cabinet, and to himself, and told them on what ground I intended to 6tand on this question of Kan sas. They were so good as to send me sufficient written testimony strengthening me in the position 1 had assumed. I went on with Walker and Stanton, until the Ox ford and McGee frauds took place, when there was a burst of execration throughout the country. The whole Democratic press had argued constantly the policy of the Administration up to that time; but when Gov. Walkei re jected these frauds, there was silence. A pall fell over the columns of the Washing ton "Union." Nothing was said upon the subject of the Oxford and McGee frauds. No voice was heard in Washington against it; but I suppose some malign influences for the moment, had surrounded that journal; that it had had an attack of some peculiar insanity, which had lately become chronic with it, and I allowed it to pass by. But when the dark, damning deed of Le compton was perpetrated, thent I saw for the first time that those gallant men in the Territory, Walker and Stanton, and those who acted with them, had been deserted. I saw that Democratic principles had been carried out by them, and we were now called upon to turn our backs upon our pledges and betray our manhood. Ap plause. Gentlemen, there was something loo much of this, and when the cup was presented to my lips I " refused ' it. Cheers. Administrations may change, Presidents may change, but I had been oo fully committed ou this subject to go bacfe to Pennsylvania and turn my back upon pledges which I had both spoken and written to thousands of men. I did jot for a moment believe that the Administration liad concluded to abandon the principle which hsd put them into power; that they were resolved to make their policy a test; 80 when I went to Washington and called upon my old friend, I said to him, "Mr. fcuhanan, for the first time in our lives we art? at va riance: I find myself standing bvona prin ciple, having followed your lead, and you you change too? Laughter. If I cai afford to jhange, why can't you afford to change? Renewed laughter. If you and Douglas and Walker will unite in sup port f my policy, there will not be a whim per of this thing; it will pass by like a Sum mer breeze." I told him thai it was very well with an Administration surrounded by office-holders, and living all the time in the atmosphere of flattery, that was fol lowed by thousands of gentlemen who ex pected place; that they could come to him nd iav. "You are ritrht, Mr. Bnchanan; we are down on our bellies; please to walk over us please trample upon us and we will be happy and content, and hope you will relieve vour policy is right." But I tell you," said I, "there is still small vnw-A in theneonle that instinctively rejects frauds, and this is not only a fraud hut a dishonor. 1 do not claim lobe more imnML ilisnanv oilier uisu. I have douo as all politicians have boiuu things which may not square exactly with the rules of religion and right, and which, if I have, 1 regret them; but this tlnntr will not' do. Loud cheers. I have reached the stature and years of manhood, and 1 caunot go back to Pennsylvania to eat my own words and become the slave of power. Re newed cheers. I cannot. But then Mr. Buchanan, you must tolerate this differ ence of opinion.. Gen. Jackson tolerated differences of opinion in his friends. Col. 1'oik tolerated dinerences' or opinion, and you differed with him in his. views on the - i ' f l ; s I 1 . tanu, ana yet you remaineu in ins vaoniet. Mr. Pierce tolerated differences of opinion. But there you are. Men who nut jou where you are who ask nothing at your hands who have refused your tavois nave tram pled all the patronage that has been offered them undi-r feet; here they ' are, asking to be toleiated in the indulgence of an honest opinion." Ihe reply to that was, "Csir, i intend to make my Kansas policy a test. "Well, Sir," said I "I regret it; but if you make it a test with your officers, we will make it a lest at the ballot-box." CILxmd cheers. I Repeated efforts were made to heal the difference. But it seems to too, gentlemen, that when the Presidency is conferred upon a poor mortal, it transforms him into a God, in his own estimation, or a lunatic. Laughter. Nobody is permitted to ap proach cower to tell the truth. Power never hears the thander voice of the people. sitting as it does in its cushioned chairs. bet ween its marble walls. The independ ent man. loud and hold, with a clear eye, who comes to tell the truth, is waved from the Presidential presence as a rude in t ruder. Then we went home. As I said. repeated efforts were made, and made in vain, to heal the differences. The con ferrinrr of this Presidential patronage of vast millions more than the monarch of Great Britain enjoys, and nearly as much as the French Despot wields this patron age induced Mr. Buchanan to believe that he could make his test successful. How was it made? Gentlemen, when the chap ter which shall detail the manner in which the Administration bas used its patronage is written, it will be a black one. When our children and our cbildreu's children come to read it, they will not believe that an American citizen, elevated to the Pres idential chair, in the face of such a people, covered with such an armor of pledges, would have gone into that chair to have used his army ay, his army and the treas ure your money and mine--your officers and miue for the purpose of putting down a gallant band of men for standing by the plain God's truth; and I wish that when the historian comes to write, he would not be compelled to write that that President was born in Pennsylvania. Applause. - Now, gentlemen, there has not been an element lacking to relieve this unredeemed infamy not one. There has not been a single circianstance lacking. They have gone on, step by step, with a tread of fate and destiny, trying to crush out the brave and gallant spirits who have stood forth asking for nothing but to be allowed to do right. Look at the South, in whose name this deed, Lecomptonism, has been perpetrated, after its representa tives in the Senate and the House have as sisted ii? hounding down Stephens A. Douglas, and David C. Broderickand their gallant compatriots in the House, the South begins to say, as they nee the Adminis tration hell-hounds pursuing and attacking Douglas and his mends in Illinois: "Ihis O .... is too much. We are willing to accept Lecomptou as gilded poison which has been extended to us, and which is to help us, though the only thing it has done has been to commit our Representative to a gross wrong toward the North. But we cannot bear this persecution. Read the letter published the other day in the New York papers from Reverdy Johnson, of Maryland. Readjthe state ment of Alex, id. Stephens and Henry A. Wise. They are clamorous against these attacks on Mr. Douglas. Public men in this country forget in their truck ling to the South that Southern people are Americans as we are. They have their Slavery. They have their peculiar insti tutions. But they reject an infamy they reject unfairness just as xeadily as we do. They will not submit to this tyranny of the Administration upon Mr. Douglas. And so it will be when the administration begin by courting the South by de claring that the only thing the President should do is to yield to the South, that Administration, will end by the South turning upon it. What than? It will be Tylerised. Laughter. The Adminis tration of James Buchanan Tylerised supported by a set of office-holders and ex pectants only, with all the great parties, and the one that put it in power inclusive, standing from it, and shunning it like a contagion: "Imperial Cx-nar, dead and turn to Clay Must stop a hole to keep the wind away." HOW DEMOCRATS ARB PROSCRIBED AND OP ' POSITION MEN TAKEN INTO FULL FELLOW SHIP. - I am aware that I am talking to a mixed audience there are here present Ameri cans. Republicans and Democrats. A Voice No doubt o that. Mr. Forney (continuing) Now, gentle men, we who act with Mr. Haskin, we who follow the flag borne by those great heroes of the day those immortal chief tains, Henry A. Wise and Stephen A. Douglas are constantly twitted with com bining with what are politely called Black- Republicans. Laughter. But have you Americans who are present witnessed the efforts of the Administration to make a union with you? The administration can con: bine with the Americans (I believe you are called Know-Nothings sometimes) and that is all rqht. Or if a Black Republican comes out for Lecompton, he is immedi ately washed clear and wiped. Laugh ter. '. Why, gentlemen, the principles that we fought for in J 866 are now reduced to Lecompton. We may be as true as the North Pole upon every principle, but if we don't go for Lecoroptoo we are d d indeed. Laughter But if the Republican or the American become Lecomptonized, he is not only speedily forgiven but he is elevated to the highest seat in the syna gogue, and be is pointed at as a brand rescued from the burning. Laughter. The administration is pledged, recoiled to a platform of hostility to secret political societies. He is pledged in Its platform lo those who speak with a rieh Irian brogue or sweet German accent. But, gentle men, vou Americans and you foreigners and adopted ciiizenB are not to recollect. when an Amcitcan becomes jecontpwn ized ; only those' who are infamous who unite with Republicans and Americans to vindicate a principle. Applause. Then you are ofulof the party and are excluded lrom decent society, anu nencefortu and forever you are never to be foririven unless at the last moment you t-ome forward and say :,'".PrAistt unto thee, John fJalhoun and Lecompton." I .Laughter. J 1 have been toiling in the Demovratio party since 1 was a boy, and 1 am not now qiute .41 years of age, 1 never voted any but a straight Democratic ticket. My excellent friend, Samuel J. Randall, who was a very good American, and who was elected lo (he benate or our State, Sam said to me : "I am freshly in the . party, and Vou are freshly out of it.". Thun.,1 tindmyself turned out of the Democratic party Hi will consent to it. and because 1 will not consent to leave Democratic principles Laughter. .,., 40,000 AOAINST LECOMPTON ZK , PENNSYL VANIA IN OCTOOXB. . .

And when these things trans pirs there would be no God la heaven it . ........ the ballot-box did not damn such a party in October next. Cheers. And you in New York, who think -the Democratic party is sold, body syd, breeches to this official despotism, takecare lest when No- vember comes you do wot , bud . that the Democrats think a" good deal more of tlieir principles than they do ol their organiza tion. .

Cheers. That is the w ) we will make our mark there yes, we v ifl do more; we will stand by John Hickman we will stand by. Montgomery, and whenever a Lecompconite ii trotted out we will try to defeat him, whether regu larly nominated or not. 1 ara not to be terrified by this Chinese thuuder of or ganization. Laughter. I am willing to combine with any good man, no matter what is his name, who combines with me, to rescue the American name from this odium, and this disgrace. Why, gentle men, hi 1866, 'not to go back to that but tor an instant, we would never have got the Republican vote we did for Mr. Bu chanan if we had not pledged ourselves, over head and heels.' for this doctrine. MEIUS COUNTY TELEGKAPII. r0IJErtOY, o. TUESDAY,:: SEPTEMBER 21. Flist pistrlct. Geo. H. Pendleton is the present Rep resentative from this District. He is man of great wealth, and fair character and talents. lie belongs essentially to the would-be -aristocracy of our country, which draws him naturally to affilliate with fl.A Southern slave-holders. He made some show of resistance to the Lecompton Swindle, but caved In, and is now re-nominated as the Administration candidate. The Republican candidate is T. C. Day. Mr. Day was formerly the most prominent Democrat of Cincinnati. Wa-i for a time the Editor of the Cincinnati "Enquirer." Was elected to Congress by the Demo crats, and went with the party until it sold itself to the Slave power of the South, atd made the honest love of freedom and country a crime. From the lime of the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, aim the determination to make slavery the su preme law of the land, Mr. Day, with thousands of other honest Democrats, were drawn into the ranks of the great Repub lican party, where he has nobly battled for the right. We think he will be elected. econd District. Wm. S. Groesbeck is the present mem ber, and is the Lecompton nominee for re-election. He made a strong speech against the Lecompton iniquity, and then backed down and voted for it. In return for this treason to his constituents, and stultification of himself, the Administra tion Las secured his renoraination, and will use its power to secure his election. The Republicans have nominated John A. Gurley as their candidate in this Dis trict. He, like T. C. Day, and others, was formerly a leading and influential Democrat. But Mr. Gurley, not being possessed of that easy virtue that permits a man to change his principles at the bid ding of an Oligarchy,' found " himself. while honestly oppoeiag the .mad schemes of oppression and fraud that wers being enacted in the name oi Liemocracy, acting with the Republicans. As an honest man should, he went where he could maintain his principles, and' consequently united with the Republican party. He is now their candidate, and will, we hope, Ue elected, although the District i largely Democratic. Xlilra -District.. . C. L. Vallandighsm is ihe present mem ber from this District. He is an able, but itiarlv miftcriinuhius noliticiau. He was J 1 jr a candidate against L. D. Campbell at the last election, and was airly beaten, but contested the election, and, as the Le comptonitPS bad a msjority in the House, Mr. Campbell was ousted and V auandig ham put into his seat. He is a straight out Buchanan man, but is playing the des perate gams of a double-faced demagogue. in order lo secure his election. ... L. D. Campbell is tli Republican can didats. The District is naturally Demo cratic, and there is soma dissatisfaction orit.lt the nomination of Campbell. . Under all the circumstances, we fear Campbell will be defeated. - He will, however, con test the ease with great ability, and if the true Issue can be presented to the people wb shall hope for the success of L. D. Campbell, the Republican candidate. Fourth District. J M. II. Nichols is the -present member. and is the Republican nominee for re-eleo lioni. lie .is a strong Man and a true Re publican. Up' to the time of the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, he acted with the Democratic party. He was in Con gress at that time as a Democrat, and ear nestly opposed that violation of plighted faith, and when his party sold itself to the slave-drivers to do their dirty work, Mr. Nichols,- with thousands of others, was compelled to leave them. The Ropubli cans of the District as a reward for honest independence and resistance to party des potism, have twice elected him, and will no doubt elect him again. : William Alleu, an open LecompUmite, is his competitor. We cannot believe the people of the District will so far for get their duty to the country and them selves as to repudiate their able, faithful. and tried Representative. - We put down the election of Nichols as among the fixed facts. F1R1 District. Richard Molt is the present , able and popular member from this DistrioU James M. Ashley, a mm of talent and energy is the Republican nominee to succeed him Like many others, he was a leading Demo crat up to the initiation of the Kansas outrages, which necessarily threw him as an honest man, into the Republican ranks. When the party attempted to fasten the curse of slavery on the people of Kansas, against their united and indig nant protest. Mr. Ashley took his stand with Judge Warden, Dicky, Case, Day, Gurlev and thousands of others. He has been an earnest Republican sver since. The District is usually Democratic, and we think the chances are against him. He is a fine speaker, however, and we will not bring so hard a charge against the people as to assume that they are bo hope fosBly sold lo the Black Power, as to elect a Lecompton tool of Buchanan and the nullifiers.. We hope Mr. Ashley will be elected. Slxtli District. Joseph R. Cockerill is the present Le compton member in this District. lie stuck to the Calhoun frauds and forgeries with all the tenacity with which a South ern Democrat clings to a "nigger." The Administration brought all its influence lo bear to secure his re-nomination but failed The Anti-Lecompton wing of the party succeeded in throttling him, and noraina ted Wm. Howard in his place. If How ard could be trusted the Republicans would vote for and elect him. But he is suspected to be a Lecomptonite in dis guise. The Republicans have nominated R. W Clark as their candidate. He is said to be a man of fair talents, and great purity and integrity of character. The District is largely against the Republicans, but we ttusl there are patriotic men enough in the Democratic party who will look at th good of their country and vote for Clark We hope he will be elected, although the chances are the other way. Seventh District. Aaron Harlan is the present member from this" District. Hon. Thomas Corwin, Ex-Governor, has been nominated by the Republicans as bis successor. Corwiu has taken no part in politics for several years, but the pending crisis has called him from his retiracy, to assist in rescuing from the hands of the spoilers the institutions which our fathers established and cemented with their blood. He is now doing a great work for the Republican cause. He will be triumphantly elected, and his powerful voice will again be heard in the Halls of Congress, battling for the right against the tyranny and corruption of the party that in the desecrated name of Democracy, is building up the most profligate and shameless Despotism that sver cursed any country. His election is sure. Eiguth District. Benjamin Stanton is the present mem ber, and the Republican nominee for re election in this District. He was an Old Line Whig, is a man of great ability and sterling integrity, lias served his con stituents faithfully -for several years, and will be elected, we have . no doubt, by a large majority . . Wm. Hubbard, Editor of the Logan "Gazette," is his competitor on the Le compton ticket. He, too, is sn Old-Line Whig, of the oldest kind. His paper has been the bitterest of any in the State against the Democratic party, lie would like to have been the candidate on the other side, but when Stanton was re-nominated,- Mr. Hubbard and his "Gazette" still supported Mr. Hubbard, and there fore the Lecomptonites nominated Mr Hubbard, of the " Gazette" as their can didate, and Mr. Hubbard, as editor of the "Gazette," earnestly iupports Mr. Hub bard, as the Buchanan Democratic nomi nee. Mr. Hubbard will do all he can to elect Mr. Hubbard, but Mr. Hubbard can't be elected. Nfntu District. Lawrence W. Hall is the present Bu-chanan-Lecoropton member from this District, and the .nullifiers nominee for re-election. He is one of the most sub servient of all the Ohio dough-faces, and will consequently have all the influence of the Administration exerted for his success Judge Carey, is the Republican candi date, is a man of sterling integrity and 6ne talents. .. He ourrht to be elected, and we tope he will, be, although the chances are gainst ; him. The" District is largely Democratic, and if a campaign of unscru pulous falsehood and misrepresentation can deceive and blind the people. Judge Carey will be beaten. Still we have no ght to assume that truth and right will be overthrown, and therefore shall hope that Hall, the willing tool of the slave power, will receive a deserved rebuke at the hands of his betrayed and insulted constituents. ' ! Xentli District. Joseph Miller is the present Adminis tration member, and has been nominated by the Calhoun wing of the party for re election. He supported the Kansas vil ainies in all their forms, and denounced Douglas, and all who favored the people having a fair vole on the institutions under hich they were to live, as enemies to Democracy. Carey A. Trimble, is the Republican candidate in opposition to Miller. He is a son of Ex-Governor Trimble, is a man of fins talents, of tried integrity, and a sound Republican. The only charge the Demo cratic "Dispatch," of Gallipolis, can bring against him, is that he voted for 8. P. Chase, the Republican candidate for Governor, against his father, who was the American candidate. He will be tri umphantly elected. The people of the District will give Miller such a rebuke as will be a warning to all traitors in future. The Anti-Lecompton Democrats will join heartily with the Republicans for his de feat. Miller is a " dead cock in the pit." Eleventh District. V. B. Horton is the present popular Republican member, but declining a re nomination, N. II. Van Vorhes is the Republican candidate in this District. The District was arranged by a Demo cratic Legislature, with a view of giving it permanently to that party. The popu larity of Mr. Horton and other causes has enabled the Republicans to succeed at the ast two (.-lections ; but from the fact that the Know-Nothings in the upper counties have generally gone over to the Lecompton parly, renders the contest doubtful. If, however, the people of the District wish to have their true sentiments represented. they will elect Mr. Van Vorhes. C. D. Martin is the Lecompton nomi nee. Beside being a very weak man, he is an out-and-out supporter of Buchanan and the English Swindle. If elected, he will go with the extreme Southern, Disu nion, Slavery-extension wing of the party, and refuse the admission of Kansas with a Free-Slate Conttituiion of their own choice, until it has a populatiou of 93,420, according to the English bill. This he distinctly announced in the Conrt-Honse in presence of a large number of our citi zens. We will not believe, until it id demonstrated by their votes, that the peo ple of the District desire to be represented in the next Congress, by C. D. Martin as the successor of V. 13. Horton. JtSfWe call the special attention of our readers to the speech of Col. Forney, in to-days paper. It is terribly severe in the truthfulness of the revelations it makes. Col. Forney is the life-long personal friend of Buchanan, and did more thau any living man to secure his election. That election was secured by the most solemn pledges to the people, as will be seen on perusal of the speech. But hav ing obtained his seat through these solemn pledges, Buchanan required this same Col. Forney, to falsify his word, to tram ple under foot the promises he had made, and betray the people who had trusted in good faith the representations which in duced them to vote the Democratic ticket. And because he would not write eternal dishonor on his own brow, and sacrifice himself and his principles, at the bidding of the President, he is denounced as a traitor. Read the speech.
