liG. EASTMAN, T-C.DtJ JfNDTGTON, &G.C.TOSEET THURSDAY MOKMNG, APKIL 17, 1850. (J3. " An old Clay-Whi g" again appeals in our columns this morning, in reply to the Patriot, of the arguments of which paper the public will' agree that be makes a perfect case. The fifth article of the series will appear Satur day morning. J. L. CHAPMAN. A fellow by the above name, claiming to be a Methodist minister, made his appearance some time since in the public prints of this city as a defender of the know-nothing creed. His productions were without "rhyme or reason" a mixture of ridicu lous assumption?, senseless twaddle, and a disgust ing amount of plebeian arroganie. There was nothing in the man or the stuff which he published over his signature, worthy of attention, but for the fact that he claimed to hold the ministerial office in a highiy influential christian church, and to be the son of an Irish mother and born upon foreign soil. These two points gave the only importance that attached to the man or the matter. He set out in one of his articles, with the following bold assumption: "I am a minister of the M E. Church, South, and thecliurcli is responsible to Hit public for what I say and write, and will so continue until the proper authorities condemn. On the other hand I am re sponsible to the proper authorities of the church for what 1 do, say aud write. It will therefore FOLLOW THAT WHATEVIK ABUSES MAY BE DASHED AT ME, WILL, ON THE PRIHCIPLE OF A FAMILY SCFFERISO WITH. THE ISSULTED MEMBER, BE DASHED AT THE CHURCH." We had been raised under the ministration of Methodism in this country, and knew that the above assumption of authority was reckless, false atid slanderous upon that church; and notwith standing it pame from a very puny and contempt ible source, yet, being uttered by a minister, it had that appearance of authority about it that vtjas cal culated to do harm, (where the autiior toas not known,) both to the Methodist church and the democratic party, that he was assailing. We knew too, that there were more Chapmans than one in the world in fact, that they were getting to be a crying evil in these modern times, that argued a degree of infldslity and corruption in the church, alarming to the better portion of society. We have consequently taken occasion to hold this man up to the attention of the public, that they might look upon the loathsome deformity of a class in society, who, "stealing the livery of Heaven to serve the devil in," are seeking to connect politics and relig ion, and degrade the latter to a simple instrument of the former. We hoped thus to "point a moral,' and arouse public attention, to its important con sequences. Otherwise the Irish Orangemen, as we shrewdly suspect him of being, would have received from us the same contempt of the dirty bug who rolls his harmless ball in summer's sunshine or the filthy bird that befouls its own nest. We think that wo have accomplished our purpose. That the goQd which we have mide of him, by eliciting public attention to a dangerous evil, is ample ex-1 cuse for. the prominence we have given the man, and'Tully repays us for the dirty employment in which any one engages who has aught to do with an illiterate, vulgar, pretending knave. If we should have occasion to notice him hereafter, we want it distinctly understood that it is not Chap man, the man, (because we could find his betters in the gutter,) but Chapman, the minister, that merits our attention. Notwithstanding the foolish fellow says that "whatever abuses are dashed at me, (Chapman,) will, on the principle of a family suffering with the insulted member, be dashed at the church,".vre are willing to give him the benefit of this article, and account for it to the church. So much we have thought it necessary to say by reason of an article signed "J.L. Chapman" in yes. terday'a Gazette. THE BISHOP'S OATH-BAD TREATMANT QUES TIONS. We don't know when we have been so badly treated as lately by the Gazelle, in this matter of Bishop's oath ! The story is this: the editors of the Gazette, raised here in Nashville as the per sonal and political friends of the Bishop, asked tii to call on him for a copy 'or hi3 oath as BishopI We didn't intend noticing the call. "If the edi tors wanf the oath, let them ask the Bishop for it themselves," said we. But the Bishop, seeing the call in the Gazelle, and seeing also that the descrip tion of it in that paper wa3 untrue in point of fact, brought it to us, and asked us to print it. Being naturally of obliging dispositions, we printed the document, with no other thought than the comfort able reflection that we were doing a very good natured thing, and conferring a favor both on our good friends of the Gazelle and on the aforesaid Bishop. And now, look how the Gazette treats ua 1 Instead of acknowledging that the published oath fails to sustain the description of it which it gave, instead of thanking U3 for the favor, it turns round and, day after day, occupies itself in abus ing us for doing what it ashed lis to do ! Can any thing be worse than this? To ask of us a favor, and then abuse us for granting it ! Wo are ashamed of our neighbors! And now, we have a few questions to ask of one of the editors of the Gazelle. Did he not GO TO HOME ! Didn't he, while thereconurm U and adopt one of the dreadful Popish superstitions of Hit dark ages ? Didn't he in Ms eagerness OT TO SEE TdE POPE -"a commit tite fraud of pin ning vp the skirts of his frocJ: coat so as to clieat the guards ? Didn't a CATHOLIC PRIEST help him to commit this fraud ? And teas not the fraud SUCCESSFUL? We wa-t this assailant of Popery to answer these questions before again attacking us ils, we ray, who are Protestants by birth and education, and were never inside a Catholic church! (but once, in Montreal, to see the pictures in the cathe dral) A PLATFORM UPON WHICH ALL THE ELEMENTS CAN UNITE. The New-York Tribune, edited by Horace Gree ly, in an editorial notice of the Black Republican State Convention of New-Jersey, thus speaks of the happy adaptation of the platform adopted to suit all shades of opinion in opposition to the Democratic party: "Fortunately, the platform adopted by the Con vention of yesterday requires no one to pass so fierce a trial. The'declarations are broad enough 'for all manner of men to stand upon. It is enough to believe that the juggle of Atchison, Douglas and Pierce was an act of gros3perfidy and wrong, to qualify any individual to join in the new move ment ; for the necessary corollary of such belief i3 the conviction that no effort should be spared un til the wrong is righted ; and in the ranks of Re publicanism only can the effort be made. The signs of the times we regard as auspicious for New Jeruey. What with the solid worth and sound discretion of the Catherine Yesterday, and the pru dent tone of its resolutions, there i promise of precisely that quiet, earnest and effective work which insures success in any canvass." The same paper gives the following bit of inter esting intelligence also: "The American State Council of Wisconsin have thrown Fillmore overboard, and recommended .Speaker Bai&s for the Presidency." " Oar neighbors characterise us wiUi very abusive language." -Patriot. Pardon us, gentlemen, if in the heat and liaste of oS'rtorial labors, we employ language susceptible of each construction. We receive and endeavor to retnrn.pretty hard -blows, but it is foreign, to our nature and far from orjr;ipe.ntion to employ lan guage otherwise than courteous au4 polite on all occasions in political controversies with our neighbors. REPLY TO THE COMMENTS OF-THE PATRIOT. BY AN 0LI CLAY -WOTO ' There arasome points inJbo. comments -of.the. Kashville Patriot on tho communications which have appeared in the Ukiok, from an " Old Clay Whig," to which I desire briefly to reply. I will premise wbat I have to say by admitting, to .the full extent, the disadvantage under jwhich I labor in being debarreti the privilege of reaching those i ti'f I 1 " I i t i for whom these articles have been chiefly intended, i through the columns of a WMg paper. The Patriot taunts me with the misfortune which has befallen our old party, in not having an organ at Nashville, in the following ungenerous lan guage: "He (An Old Clay Whig) selects, as the medium of his communication wih them, a journal, which for a longer term of years than many of his read ers can number, has been a consistent and inveter ate enemy to Whig men and Whig principles. If he be sincere in his attempt to reach their hearts, and convince their judgments, he certainly addres ses them under disadvantage. His selec tion of an organ, however well it may comport with his affinities, will, with true Whigs, injure his cause, and weaken his efforts in teaching them their duty." The weakness and illiberality of this argument can only be appreciated by those who know that the Union is the only paper published in Nashville that would give place in its columns to the commu nications of Old Clay Whigs, who oppose Know Nothingi3m. " The inference may, however, be drawn from the remarks of the Patriot above quoted, that I would have been more liberally dealt with, by that paper, and that my communications would have been suf fered to appear in their columns. If this be the true meaning, I will accept most thankfully the proffered indulgence, and will, in future, spare the feelings of the sensitive Editors, by publishing the honest reflections of an Old Clay Whig, in 'the Patriot, instead of the Union. I am only an occasional reader of the Patriot, but I have not been unobservant of the distinguish ed ability with which it has been conducted, nor of the manly and patriotic stand which it assumed and triumphantly maintained, in opposition to the trimming policy, which was advocated by many of its cotemporaries; nor am I unmindful of the deli cate sense of propriety evinced by the present Edi tors, when, upon assuming a political position in conflict with their previous advocacy of Whig prin ciples, they dropped the name of "TRUE WHIG " and assumed another, by which that sper is at present known. I am fully aware, also, that in the Patriot, an Old Clay Whig has a skilful, accom plished, and able adversary; yet, so fixed am I in the conviction of the general correctness of my positions, that I would not fear to submit to an en lightened public, even my plain, unvarnished state ment, against its more polished and skilful rhetoric, if I could address myself to the same readers, and upon more equal terms. The first comments of the Patriot upon the com munications of an "Old Clay Whig," referring only to the supposed personal qualities of the wri ter, without touching upon the merits of the sub jects discussed, a reply was considered neither appropriate or necessary. I regard the declaration that members of the American party derive a gratification from the refusal of "an Old Clay Whig" to unite with them in the support of their Presidential ticket, rather as a splenetic ebullition of ill-humor, than the expression of an actually exist ing feeling. I am well aware, from personal ob servation, that no party views witii satisfaction the opposition of any quiet, unobtrusive citizen, how ever humble or obscure may be his position. If, this statement of the Patriot be true, how ever, I must frankly admit that the feeling has not been reciprocated. My associations, personal and political, have been for so many years' identified with whigs and the whigTarty, that I have re garded with painful emotions, the approach of that crisis in our political history which might produce an estrangement; not that political differences of opinion, necessarily affect our private friendships, but I know from' personal observation, that such results sometimes follow. As for myself, my way of life is almost "fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf," and I well know, that there would be more quiet, and perhaps a greater degree of personal comfort, in floating on upon the current which bears a majority of those with whom I have been previously associated by so miny and such strong ties. But in a Republic like ours eich citizsn is a part of the State, and when he silently acquiesces in measures which hi3 judgment tills him are fraught with evil to his country, he becomes un worthy of the sovereignty conferred upon him by the Constitution. Upon the advent of the know-nothing (since de nominated by its friends the American party,) a large majority of the whig leaders attached them selves to it3 fortunes, abandoned the old whig party, and adopted an entirely new set of principles, not only differing from, but in my view eminently antagonistical to those they had previously pro lessed. In common with thoujnds of other old Clay whigs, I have declined to participate in or be n nriv to the movement. Our absence has been to some extent supplied by a heterogenious com pound of all the isms, and disappointed politicians of other parties. For reasons which I have stated at length in the articles referred to by the Patriot, I am satisfied that old line whigs cannot consist ently accord to it their support in the approaching Presidential election. But the Patriot thinks that the refusal of old Clay whigs to support Mr. Fillmore, the candidate of the American party, can be regarded in no other light than as an act of political treachery to the old whig party and principles ! Thi3 too in the fice of the oft reiterated declaration of its leaders that the old parties being "rotten and corrupt," had been abandoned, and that " upon their ruins a new and virtuous party had arisen, composed of tho elite of all tho old organizations,"' and with entirely new issues and principles, which commended them selves to the support of the Ameriean people, no matter to what party they may have hitherto be longed. Would the Patriot have it understood now that this so-called American party is really and in fact nothing more nor less than the old whig party under a new name, and thus impliedly admit, that these declarations have been made with the single purpose of entrapping unwary or over credulous democrats into its ranks ? But in another view: If for the reason that I was an old Clay whig, I cannot, without treachery to my old principles, withhold my support from Mr. Fillmore, would not the editors of the Patriot who were likewise old Clay whigs, be guilty of equal treachery to those same principles, by confer, ring their support upon Andrew J. Doselson, who never was a whig who is not now a whig, and who has, during his whole political life, been the constant and consistent opponent of Mr. Clat and his principles? It cannot b.e a virtue in the editors of the Patriot to support Mr.'DoNELSON, (a life time democrat,) and a vice in other old Clay whigs to support another .democrat. If the dissolution of the old whig party has left old whigs no other al ternative than to vote for an old democrat in the approaching Presidential election, (and upon this point if upon no other ) aud the Patriot agree,) I think, in all fairness, they shield be allowed to se lect from among tiic lest. Different, and sometimes conflicting deductions may be extracted from admitted truths, but it is impossible to .r.ue questions understanding be fore an enlightened audfeory, when the disputants differ in regard to tie facto, ('ten I stated in ef feet "that Mr. Fillmore was qonynady tydy of men of heterogenious admixturevyho wer,ec. sound on the questions most vital and important to the South, and inferred therefrom (amongst other reasons) that hu nomination was afraud uponitbe. Soutfi, I thought was'stating anunaieniable,fi- toricallact. But the Patriot takes issue withimeT' and says that "tlie proposition cptinolje "sustained ly theJacUoitafair cowse of argument," How else can we account for the bitter and Cdlumnious assaults on the )3uth by its 'Northern members?, Howelse jujtffyhejondcctjOf Soujl ein aeiegatss who, with indignant scorn, deLounc ed the convention as. a "teagub of abolitionists and mraitors? I " The Patriot surely has not forgotten the.declara'. tion of one of the delegates from Tennessee in a speech beforesthe convention, that "He had been in many conventions of a political, religious and commercial character, and 'had wit- 'nesied rows in Congress and in State Legislatures, dui mat xma wao rim Musi' lUSUUDiSK LY AND DISGRACEFUL CONVENTION HE HAD EVER SEEN!!" The same speaker, in continuation of his re marks, said that he "had been in all sorts of fights with all sorU of people, iat that he did not wish to lo se whatever of character -he might have, by mixing it up vitfi such low flung material as HE FOUND THERE I" When Mr. Bennett, of New York, who was supposed by the abolitionists to be what they term a "dough-face," arose to address the convention, he was assailed by a torrent of hisses, yells, shouts and insults to such an extent it was seriously appre hended that violence to his person would follow, in the midst of which he exclaimed, "I am not to be clioked or hissed down, I WILL SPEAK or LEAVE THIS STAND A CORPSE I " When Mr. Wood, of California, addressed the convention "in defence (!) of the Southern Ameri cans," (says a Tennessee delegate in his report of the proceedings,) "as usual, he was interrupted and insulted at every point hf THE VILE delegates from Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan and Connecti cut! I" And when (he Hon. Charles Ready, of Tennessee, (distinguished alike for his urbanity of manners and courtesy in debate,) addressed the council in opposition to the repeal of the 12th sec tion, we are informed by the same writer that "he was interrupted throughout his able and convincing speech by insulting taunts and irrelevant calls to or der by tlie dirty abolition party I " The editor of the Knoxville Whig in his notice of the speech delivered before the convention by GeD. Zolliooffer, published in that paper, says: "Gen. Z , in dealing out his facts and blows, en raged the Free Soil party to a pitch of desperation. They hissed him ordered him to take his seat, and otherwise insulted him, and all who were acting with him. He became indignant, and denounced them in withering terms, when the whole house became a scene of confusion, uproar and disorder, never before equalled in an assembly J was in. A rush was made towards the Presidents diair, where ZoUicoffer slood, with the fingers, and hissesand taunts of the vile, low flung, and disorderly abolitionists pointed at him,, as though they intended personal violence. Southern men crowded around tue stand, and cried out "say what you please Zollicolfer, you can't be hurt." Joseph Pickett, of Tennessee, sprang, to his back, and told him to "give them hell, and they should not even resent it." Another T ennessean told him to "lay it on the negro-stealing viUians, and, that IF THEY HAD THE NUMERICAL STRENGTH TO OUTVOTE us, we had the ability and courage ZO.KI0K thtm out of the IlalU!" The writer concludes the letter of which the foregoing is an extract, by saying: "I have not overstated this picture, but have, on the main and leading points, correctly posted up my readers. I have no confidence in any oaths, obligations or pledges taken by these vile abolitionists." Mr. Kyle, of Ohio, "contended that the princi ple of .the 12th section, could not be acknowledged by any American, north, he said that he dared not, would net, and could not act, nor would Ohio act with the American party, so long as that plat form was retained." Gov. Ford, of the same State, said, while the 12th section was under consideration, "that liber ty was National, and slavery sectional," and he de clared that he would sooner be found "stealing ne groes from the South, and running them off to the Free States, than to be found aiding in hunting them up, and returning them to bondage!" The facts here mentioned are derived altogether from the published statements of Southern dele gates. I might swell these extracts to columns, and indeed others of a still more discreditable charac ter, from well authenticated sources; but why pur sue further the humiliating details? Do not 'these furnish sufficient evidence in support of my as sumption, that the Convention which nominated Mr. Fillmore, was a "heterogeneous admixture of discordant dements!'' A few words now in reference to the attitude of f the majority of that convention "on the question most vital and important to the South." It will be re membered that two delegations fiom Pennsylfania claimed seats in the convention. The one repre senting the regular National 12 th section party, the other the seceding abolition party. The latter was, upon a test vote, admitted to take their seats, by a vole of eighty-four to forty five, against the united vote of the Southern delegates. The editor of the Knox ville Whig says, in reference to this subject, writing from Philadelphia: "Even the vile and unprincipled rascals, who secetled in June last, are here, and have been al lowed their seats, at least a portion-of them. They have no right to seats in this body, but the ruffians have the power, and they have voted themselves in 1 The convention adjourned to meet again to-morrow, when the abolition forces will pitch into the 12th section and no doubt repeal it " And when the question of the repeal of this sec tion came before the convention, we are informed by the same writer that "there was a fierce war and a protracted debate," and that "Various .amendments and substitutes were of fered, andseveral test votes were'laken, resulting gen erally in ninety five favoring tlie abolition views and seventy -five favoring the National party , composed of Southerners, the New York delegation acting with the SouthV The 12th section was repealed, and as if the South was not already sufficiently humiliated by the character of their proceedings, the conven tion, by vote, declared its "opposition to the reck less and unwise policy of the present administra tion, as shown ig re-opening sectional ogilation, by the repeal of the Missottri compromise !" 'When it is considered that every delegate from the South) who was a member of Congress at the time, voted for that repeal; that every Southern delegate Aen present cordially approved the measure, and that the entire party in the South, had in common with the democracy, planted itself upon the platform of the Kansas-Nebraska act of disenthralment, it may readily be inferred that the thrust was not intend ed so much to wound the administration, as to in flict a bitter rebuke upon their Soutbrn associates. Having thus selected at random, a few dainty bits from the feast to which the Patriot has invited me, I submit to the .candid reader, no matter what may bo his "political affinities," whether I have not fully established the truth of my declaration, that the "materials of which that convention was composed, were discordant, Bnd that the majority was unsound upon the question most vital and im portant to the South." I have only to add tocomr plete its history, that this Convention, thus consti? tuted, nominated Messrs. Fillmore and Donelson for the presidency and Vice Presidency. If Mr. Fillmore is national in his political faithy then be does not fairly represent the principles of the majority of the convention which nominated him, and which had the numerical strength to re ject him, and we have a right to conclude that it was no part pi their purpose to aid in his electit n to the Presidency. It ip, therefore, clearly mani fest that, in allowing the Southern members to Ijring forward Mr. Fillmore as their candidate the Northern majority merely meant to present an inseparable obstacle to the union of the South, while they, by uniting their fortunes to that of the black repu'Mcans, w Ould, In thestrulgle fofthe President:) prtssnt tto- undivided' front. Ii must be canced ti by even the m03t sanguine of Mr. .Fillmore's ft lends that there is not the remoust probability f his election, unless he cin obtain the cordial sudd VI of the black republican party. This heinotiotif.ho be a'true hisd; or assuming sSbb, acombinatici nbssiblej.it is an association which does not con: anend itself .to the patriotic regard of I desire to say In conclusion, that I do'not wish to be unde:s nod as cisting censure upon the Rep resentatives irf the South in that Convention. On the contrary, jt. ftlt gratified, as a Southern man, on witnessing lb b bold, determined and dignified stand they assumed, and maintained in every emergency, and I can onl, r regret that they had not abandoned it altogether vhen they discovered that the major ity were determined to deny to the section they represented, t be equal righto to which they are en titled under th u Constitution. Bat the Patriot, in the blindness of infatuated zeal for its party, de clares that th i Philadelphia Convention "was as pure a body of national patriots as ever assembled in this country -1 " A convention, which, if we are to credit the concurrent testimony of all who wit nessed its proceedings, 1 was siganlized by more violecce,moreblackguardism,more evidence of sec tional bitterness, and less regard for the decencies of that christian faitn of which they profanely, as sumed to be the guardians and exponents, than ev er before characterized the doings of any political body, claiming to be national. This convention may be remembered hereafter, but surely never as an evidence of the purity or patriotism of the par ty it assumed to represent, until these words shall have lost their significance. There ore pointo in the history of nations, ofpo-' litical. parties, and of individuals, which are pre served as beacon lights for posterity. The re proachful exclamation of the unfortunate Madame Roland, when dragged to execution, uqder the bloody code of the French Republic, (0! Liberty! what crimes are not committed in thy name !) still rings in our ears a warning against'the substitution ,of unbridled license for rational liberty. The pro ceedings of the Hartford Convention will be a profitable lesson to both patriots and incipient traitors, long after the individual actors who parti cipated therein, are forgotten, and the geniu3 of Protestantism, in after times, may well point to the wild orgies of this politico-rcligiou3 convention which assumed for itself the especial guardianship of the true prote3tant faith as.a warning . against the evil consequences of allowing political parties to make the christian religion a cloak, under covir of which to attain power, by trampling upon that liberty of conscisnce,and freedom of religious opin ion, which has been guarantied by our fathers to every citizen of th Republic !
