This is a slang phrase now being employed by some of th9 lesser lights of Know Nothingism to disparage Mr. Buchanan. It is intended to con vey the idea that Mr. B. at some time said that " ten cent3 a day was enough for a laboring man." We have been asked why wo did not deny this re port. Wo thought it too shallow and contemptir ble to merit a denial It is an unmitigated fake hood in its length and breadth, in letter and spirit, without even the cemblance of troth to base it upon. "Wo might publish the whole speech to which we have heard this charge attributed, and the words "ten cents' nor the idea it is intended to convey, cor any thing lite it in any shape, form or fashion, could be found in it. The people may expect nothing but columns ot such slandejs du ring the canvass. "We caution them, therefore, against any thing they see in such unscrupulous journals without the proof. TEE EDITOR OF THE BANNER EXPOSING HIS OWN SHAME. The weakness of men in their declining years notnnfrequently tarnishes the record of a brilliant past There is saoh a thing as dying at the top first; and it is a sad misfortune that men when they begin to forget themselves, should not have a lingering consciousness of their condition. His tory is full of exnmpla of this kind. If Old Bul lion had had the good luck to have been blown up on the Princeton, his life would have closed in a blaza of glory. If the flickering life-lamp of "my dear Blair" could have gone out simultaneously with that of his venerable friend and patron, it would have preserved him from the miserable shame that now makes him a drivel and a show. The editor of tho Banner has been an active participant in the political history of the country during the public life of nearly every man now upon the stage. He has lived to record the death of a majority of those who started out contempo raneously with him. He was the editor of the Republican during Gen. Jackson's first race for the Presidency. He ia the editor cf the Banner now, upwards of thirty years afterwards. Whether or not so long an editorial career is a misfortune for his own fame, we leave an impartial public to determine. With a mind naturally clinging to the inci dents of the past, entrammeled with the fossel remains of old difficulties and prejudices that should have been interred with the silent ashes of the dead, he has made his paper a literary curi osity for days past, crowding it with extracts from letters written by Gen. Jackson, Mr. Clat, Mr. Buchanan and others, as far back as 1827, concerning an old feud, growing out of a misun derstanding between the parties in 1825, relative to the election between .Gen. Jackson and Mr. Adams. We were cot born until one year after that time, and therefore have but little knowledge of the facts, only bo far as we can learn them from the editor of the Banner, who at the time these things are said to have taken place, was the editor of Gen. Jackson's organ, the Re publican, in this city. This veteran of the pres3 is now laboring to show that Mr. Been an an, who was a member of Congress at that time, in his anxiety to serve both Gen. Jackson and Mr. Clat, by making one President and tha other Secretary of State, did an unintentional injury to each, and therefore, in 185G, thirty-one years afterwards, ought not to ba made President The Banner says : Had he, (Buchanan) when he called upon Gen. Jackson, trankly and fully unbosomed himself had he told the General that, while he was his friend and supporter for the Presidency, he was aho "the ardent friend and admirer of Mr. Clay" that he desired to see the one President and the other Sec retary of State and that he had called on his own individual responsibility to see whether an ar rangement could not be effected by which those two objects could be accomplished an arrange ment by which Mr. Clay and his friends should unite in the election of Gen. Jackson, and Mr. Clay receive the appointment of Secretary of State had Mr. Buchanan, we say, dealt thus frankly with Gen. Jackson, it is probable that the latter would never have become Mr. Clay's public accuser cer tainly he would never have become so on the au thority of Mr. Buchanan. But this, the editor of the Banner says, Mr. Bu chanan did not do; by reason of which Mr. Clat suffered seriously for many years ; and concludes ' Can it be possible that while Mr. Clay was de feated in his aspirations for the Presidency by the persevering and relentless use of this charge against nim, by Mr. Buchanan's political friends, that Mr. Buchanan is destined to attain that high position ? Forbid it justice) We want it understood that we are not to be di verted from the great i?sue3 of this canvass by any such tubj-thrown to tho whale. Tho misunderstand ings and personal differences that sprung up be tween gentlemen in the heated contest of thirty years ago, concern the dead more thun the living, and should be permitted to rest with them, and not to divert public attention from tho urgent necessities of the present Doubtless many things were done and said by the respective friends of Mr. Clat and Gen. Jackson in their days that were afterwards sincerely regretted. It is too much the case in every canvass. Onr purpose now is, simply to recur to two facts that will constitute a complete answer to all that tain be said on the subjeot, and then to show the ridiculous light in which tho editor of the Banner has chosen to place himself. It is to be supposed that Gen. Jackson and Mr. Clat knew more about this matter, and how far .Mr. Buchanan was answerable, than any other two men that ever lived; and that if Gen. Jack eon and Mr. Clat could excuse Mr. Buchanan of any wrongful intention, and honor him with their confidence, no one else can have proper cause of complaint against him. That Mr. Buchanan's ex planation of the misunderstanding that had grown out of tho conversation between himself and Gen. Jackson, was entirely satisfactory to Mr. Clat. is a matter of history ; many evidences of which could be given, but the following will suffice: Mb. Clat to Mb. Bhooke.

All these old unpleasant difficulties, rejuvenated by the dinner, through the aid of Maj. Donelson, were enacted from 1825 to 1827: Four years af terwards, upon retiring from Congress in 1831, Mr. Buchanan received from Gen. Jackson, unsolicited, the high compliment and trust of the mission to Russia, in which capacity ho rendered the country the important service of negotiating tho first com mercial treaty between the United States and Rus sia, which secured to our commerce the ports of the Baltic and the Black Sea. That Gen. Jaok son's confidence and regard for Mr. Buchanan con tinued until the hour of his death, the Banner's unknown and private sources of information to the contrary, is shown by his letter to Fbancis P. Blair, dated April 9,1845, in which, speaking of Came eos, of Pennsylvania, he says: "His (Cameron's) very election has divided them (the Democracy) in Pennsylvania, and a letterto me says he ha3 done our mutual friend, Buchanan, much injury, he, (Cameron) being charged with using secretly his inflaence to effect it. " Mr. Polk is known to have gone to the Hermit age, upon the eve of his departure, for the special purpose of consulting Gen. Jackson on the subject of his Cabinet Pennsylvania, led by James Bu chanan, had contributed her Electoral. vote to his election. Gen. Jackson. had known Mr, Buchanan intimately for twenty years. The consequence was Mr. Polk invited Mr. Buchanan to accept the port folio of the Stato Department, the bead of his Cab inet. It wa3 in view of all these things, and the grave importance of tho mission, that President Piibce sent him as Minister, to England. . And for his purity of public and private character, as attest ed by tho confidence of Jackson, Polk and Pixbce, and tho large and comprehensive statesmanship which he manifested in all these important public stations, filled at their "solicitation, that the Demo cratic party have put him forward as their candidate for the Presidency. If Mr. Clat " could not ask a stronger state ment from Mr. Buchanan, " and respected his great public worth, as he frequently attested when they were both members of the United States Senate in 1841 if Gen. Jackson could so esteem him as to appoint him to an important foreign mission in 1831, recommended him to Mr. Polk as a Cabinet officer and express regret for his defeat for the Senate as late as 1845, is it not the most contempti ble twaddle for men who have been treacherous themselves to both the old parties, led respectively by Clix and Jackson, to be raising a hue. and cry, at this day, against so venerable a patriot and sage as Jamu Buchanan? This is all we have to say on this branch of the sutject If wo can only lay our hands on the old Repub lican files for 1825-G, (which we are now in hot pursuit of,) edited by tho same gentleman who now edits h&. Banner, we will thow that if there is a man on God's earth that the early and consistent friends of MtClaT ought to mistrust, that man is the present editor of the Banner, Gentleman who live in glass house3 should not throw stones. Who charged coalition" upon Mr. Clat more fu riously than tho present editor of the Banner? Who rang the changes of "bargain and intrigue" with greater partizan zeal ? Who despised, scorn ed and spit upon the name of Henry Clat as a loathsome thing, more than this veteran editor, who has lived to see himself on all sides of all po litical questions? Not satisfied with calling the Clay party "coi liiionists," and rolling it like a sweet morrel under his tongue, he even went so far, and as late as, 1834, as to charge Mr. Clay with SYMPATHIZ. ING WITH THE NT7LLIFIERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA I Andrew J. Donelson, with all his violence and spleen, could never invent anything worse against those for whom he has the most re lentless hatred. Not satisfied with charging, "bargain and intri gue," he went beyond that and thus spoko of Mr. Clat: "Here then we see this pnre and immaculate patriot (Clat) leagued inT 1815 with Jonathan Russell, in denouncing Mesnrs. Adam3 and Gal latin as politicians of the lowest and most un principled character, as men without talents, with out patriotism, and every way unworthy of the confidence 8nd support ot the people. Afterwards we see him abandoning Russell when the services of the latter could no longer be of use to him, and attaching himself to Mr. Crawford. But the very first moment he discovered that Crawford's strength and popularity were inferior to those of Mr. Adams, we see him deserting the former and elevating the latter to the Chief Magistracy of the Union DID A GREATER DEMAGOGUE, A MORE UNPRINCIPLED POLITICIAN ETER EXIST IN ANY AGE OR COUNTRY THAN HENRY CLAY?" To be "the most unprincipled demagogue that ever existed in any aga cr country," is to be worse than Nero or Cataline, much less the Nullifiers of South Carolina, with whom he was charged with sympa thizing. But the present editor of the Banner made, if possible, chargjs worse than all these, and devoted column after column to prove them, with much more assiduity than ho is now laboin g against Mr. Buchanan. He charged Mr. Clat with what was, in effect, at that time, TREASON TO HIS OWN COCJNTRYl OF HAYING PAR TICIPATED IN THE GKAND CONSPIRACY OF AARON BURR ! ! Hear him : " Henry Clay now stands convicted on the oath of a man whom the most respectable Clay men of Lexington declare worthy of credit, of having been engaged vp to the hub, in the enterprise of Aaron BurrI What will Col.

We had thought that if there was any paper in the country that would be willing to Buppcrt Fill moke upon any terms, it would be the Richmond Whig., It has been a red-mouthed Know Nothing sheet, endeavoring at the same time to hold on to its Whiggery. That paper has no doubt realized the truth of the scriptural maxim, that it i3 im possible to servo two masters. The cold indiffer ence with which Mr. Fillmore entirely ignores the existence of the old Whig party, to whom he is indebted for all Ee is, was enough to rile the Old Guard a littlo: " It will be seen that Mr. Fillmore most une quivocally endorses the Enow Nothing or Ameri can platform, and proclaims his adherence to that party alone. He 'lakes occasion to reaffirm his .full confidence in the patriotic purposes of that or ganization,' regards its existence as a publio neces sity, and believes it 'of all the political agencies now existing, to be alone possessed of power to silence agitation and restore harmony by its own example of moderation and forbearance.' Its leading principles he adopts as his guide. This is strong language, and not very palatable to Mr. Fillmore's Whig friends. We had almost said more than this. He seems to us to be. discourte ous to those Whigs and Whig pressesj which, for getting that Mr. Fillmore had joined another par ty, have expressed their readiness to support him for the Presidency, his defection from their ranks notwithstanding. We are surprised and grieved that Mr. Fillmore, who owes so much to the Whig party, and whose cuccess in the present campaign depends upon the adhesion to him of the Old-Line Whigs throughout the Union, should thus not only entirely dissociate himself from his early and stead fast friends, but should utterly ignore the very ex istence of the Whig party, and deny to it any power to aid in silencing agitation and restoring harmony. "In fact, Mr. Fillmore," in this letter entirely and with deliberation, disassociates himself from the Whig party, solicits no aid from it, forbears all recognition of it; and throws himself unreservedly upon his new associates as all sufficient for his support. He knows nothing, and will know nothing of any other party. We repeat that we are pained at the tone of this letter, writ ten as it plainly is, after mature deliberation. We are pained for the sake of the cause, and of the biighting effect which such a letter must have upon Mr. Fillmore's prospects, for we have spoken sincerely when we have advocated his personal fitness for the Presidency. But Mr. Fillmore has virtually declined support as a Whig, and we certainly are not disposed to force it upon him. We refer tho matter now to the Whigs of the Union, who, we trust, will promptly meet in national convention, and decide what Whigs shall do under the circumstances. Until then we shall be guided by our own judgment and preserve strict neutrality. WHAT HIS NEIGHBORS SAY OP HIM. It is no matter of trifling consideration and im portance that those who know a man best should eulogise him most. Moro especially is praise to be valued when it is extorted from a political op ponent. The Lmcaster, Pa., Express, a Know Nothing Republican paper, published in the imme diate neighborhood of Mr. Buchanan's residence, Is compelled to bear testimony to his unbending integrity and blameless life. After a few intro ductory remarks, the editor proceeds and says : "We knew the man as one of our most re Epected fellow citizens a gentleman of unblem ished personal integrity and unusually agreeable manners in his social intercourse with all classes. We knew him as a friend to the poor as a per petual benefactor of the poor widows of this city, who, when the piercing blasts of each successive winter brought shrieks of cold, and hunger, and want, in the frail tenements of poverty, could apply to the 'Buchanan Relief Donation' for their annual supply of wood, and sitting down with their or phaned children in the cheerful warmth of a bla zing fire, lift.their heart's in silent gratitude to God, and teach their little ones to bless the name of James Buchaoan. As a citizm, a neighbor, a friend in a word as simply James Buchanan, we yielded to no man in the measure of our respect and esteem; and were he still before us as simply James Buchanan as he was a few years ago, and when he and we occupied tho same broad Jeffer soman republican platform when at least one of the editors of this paper voted with him the year after year, the aame Democratic ticket then ours would be the more pleasing duty of support ing instead of opposing the election of our es teemed fellow-citizen and neighbor to the highest office in the gift of the American people, and the highest position of political distinction in the world."

" We give the 'above in order to show the true character of the so-called political intelligence promulgated by the enemies of the Democratic party.

A NOVEL IDEA, Dr. Deck, of New York, comes out with the startling statement that henceforth all paper may be derived from the mummy catacombs of Egypt. The doctor has explored the entire valley of the Nile, and has become so accustomed to speak Arabio that he has almost forgotten bis mother tongue. He estimates that the mummy pits of the Nile contain aboutfive hundred millions of em balmed Egyptians, who. he says, will, with their linen and papyrous cerements, furnish excellent material for first-class paper. He does not explain the rationale of hi3 theory, but as the adipose and muscular matter 01 these bodies nave all been transformed into fibre, it is possible, as he save, that it can be transformed into pulp with the srxns facility as vegetable matter.

Lest this may prove so", and I be de prived of the pleasure of being with you, I send you this note. I cordially approve of the nomi nation, and a.thcugh devotion to private pursuits for the last few years has withdrawn me from po litical channels, I shall endeavor, while others are contributing of their abundance, to cast in my humble mita to aid in insuiiog its success. 'J he country, my friends, which we all love, with institutions which we would gladly cherish, demands our test consideration. Its dearest inter ests are imperiled its integriiy is threatened. Where all should be peace and fraternal regard, we have strife, and conflict, and blood. The seeds of discord and heresy have been sown broad-cast over our fair and fertile land by the enemies of ra tional freedom, and great care and vigilance are requisite to root out and destroy their fruits. The storm which howls around us, and the waves upon which our bark is tossed will Increase in rage and fury, until the slumbering Genius of Liberty shall, like the Savior of men, be aroused from her slum bers, and cry, "Peace, be still I " The nomination of Mr. Buchanan wi.l inspire the country with hope. Like the bow which looks out from the s'orm, it tells us that the turbulent elements will sink" quietly to repose. Mr. Buchanan was entitled to the Cincinnati nomination by reason of seniority among all the eminent names suggested, in connection with the office. He was, too, clearly designated by public opinion and expectation, and was fortified by the united voice of his own proud and noble State, which had never been thus honoie J. He will be acceptable to the Democratic party and to the whole people, because or his high personal charac ter, his eminent abilities, his large experience, and, above all, his conceded statesmanship. The inter ests of the country and the feeling and spirit of the people demand the selection of statesmen and not politicians tor the high places in Government It was my good fortune to be associated with Mr. Buchanan about five years in the affairs of Gov ernment, and I had good opportunity to know of what I write. The career of Mr. Breckenridge, though'less ex tended, has been honorable, brilliant, and com manding. His name is a tower of strength at home, and he is respected as a Demosrat of the National school, of fine talents and high promise, throughout the Union. His nomination was but just to himself, and alike honorable to his State and those who made the selection. This ticket will be elected, but not without a struggle it will be bitterly but unsuccessfully op posed. It will concentrate in opposition all the bad elements which the degenerate spirit of the times has suffered to breed in the hot-bed of fac tionin ths nursery of "false doctrine, hereiy, and ism." It will summon to its support and unite in one grand and powerful column not only the en tire Democratic strength of the Union, but a large class of citizens who, exempt from the associations of party, desire; to see their beloved country oc cupy her own proud eminence among the nations the earth; desire to see her great and diversified in terests protected; to secure for her people the bles sings or nonorabia peace and exemption from sec tional feuds, and, finally, to see the blessings of a "I 1:....: 1 TT j r vuusuiuuuuai union perpeiuaieu lorever.

The following litter from Hon. S. A. Smith to Hon. H. M. Shaw should be widely circulated and carefully read. The statement made by Mr. Smith in this letter have not bsen hurriedly or inconsid erately grouped together, but aro the result of careful, patient &&d impartial inveafgation. The letter was written not with a view of securing any unworthy personal or political ends, but in order that the people ot the south might sea that when Mr. r illmore is claimed ai a sound national man. the opponent of sectionalism, and therefore, ready to discharge his constitutional obligations mtbtully acd zealously, the claim is as unsubstantial as it is utterly worthless : WastnngUn Union. Washington, June 7, 185C, Dear Sir: I receive! your letter some time since, and was at that time investigating the sub ject to which you refer. In Tennessee, as well as North Carolin a, one of th e principa I charges against the present Democratic Administration is ''the ap pointment of Free Soileis to office;" and this charge is made by the present supporters of Mr. Fillmore for President of the United States. This charge against President Pierce, though unfounded. yet coming from the source it does, has led me to examine carelully the political, or rather sectional, views of the appointees of Mr. Fillmore during his Presidential term. This has been a work of no little labor, and has required some time, which accounts for the delay in answering your letter. Upon this investigation I find the following fac's : 1st Every man appointed to any important office by Mr. Fillmoro while President, whose resi dence was North of Mason and Dixon's line, in cluding three members of his Cabinet, was a Free Soiler, and in lavor of the " Wilmot proviso." 2. One of the leading members of his Cabinet the Hon. Thomas Ccrwin, of Ohio, Secretary of the Treasury, was a prominent Abolitionist. 3d. Every one of the appointees before referred to, who had taken any public position on the slavery question, was known, at the time of his appointment, to be in favor of the prohibition of slavery in the Territories. 4th. Most of those from the same- section retain ed in office by Mr. Fillmore, who had previously been appointed by President Taylor, were Free Soilers or Wilmot Provisoists. 5th. President Pierce has appointed no man to office since he was inaugurated who in the canvass of 1852, and at the time of his appointment, was not believed by him to stand on the National Democratic Platform of 1852, which expressly denies to Congress the power to legislate on the subject of slavery in the States or Territories. Gth. The difference, therefore, in this respect, between the two Presidents, is this : that while Gen. Pierce may have appointed some Free Soilers to office without a knowledge of the fact that they were such at the time, Mr. Fillmore's appointees in the Northern States were all Free Soihrs, and known to be such at the time of their appoint ment r f I have made this examination and comparison with no view to injure Mr. Fillmore, because I think the subject of appointments to office andtbe distribution of Executive patronage small matters when compared with the great principles now at issue between the various parties of this country. I shall do Mr. Fillmore full justice in tho coming canvass forhi3 conduct while President, and shaft not deny to him the credit of executing faithfully tbo laws of the country. I have taken the time to make this investigation to show the ignorance, the inconsistenay, or the insincerity of his supporters in the Southern States, whose principal objection to the present Administration is the unfounded charge of " the appointment of Free Soilers to office."
