The Patriot of yesterday attempts to create the
impression that the supporters of Mr. Breckixridok
in Pennsylvania are endeavoring to prevent a fu-
sion between all the opponents of Lincoln' by their
exorbitant demands, and'thus give the State to Lincoln-.
The Patriot, we regret to 'say exhibits la
mentable ignorance of the subject upon which
it writes. We would be loth to suspect intentional
misrepresentation. In order to sustain its charge
that the friends of Buegeixridqe and Laxe " demand
such terms as will insure their rejection," it quotes
the following,from the card of R. S. Haldemax, Fob
net Douolasite :
''The uudersigned having in full view the disasters
to the country which would result from the elec
tion of Lincon and Hamlin, have resolved to recom
mend a Union Democratic Anti-Republican Elector
al ticket, to be intormea in me louowing manner,
to-wit: Tho twelve electors of tiie Reading ticket,
which arc assented to by all branches of the
Democratic party; ten electors selgcted by the
friends of Bell and Everett; live additional electors
from toe Reamn'o ticket, to be assented, to by a
majority of the undersigned, in all twenty-seven,
j to the committee of the several organizations to
which they, belong
" Now the Patriot knows or ought to have known
that after the disruption at Baltimore, a joint elec
toral ticket was agreed upon by the friends of
Br.ECKlMtilKJE and Docolas, and the manner in
which the vote was to be cast by that ticket
was agreed upon at Cresson. Upon that ticket there
were twelve or more aTowed frichds of the Douc-
tK Forxet and a few other Semi-Republican
friends of Docolas repudiated tlie urcsnon arrange
ment. Mr Douglas himself did it just as he has repu-
pudiatcd every other arrangement that squinted at
fusion with the friends of Brecxixuihge. But the en-
tiro Breckkridce strength and the mass of the
Docglas men in Pennsylvania still adhere to the Cres
son adjustment. The Forxetites held a Convention
at Reading two or three weeks since, at which Mr,
Douglas was, andjat which he made a speech, and at
which a straight out Docqlas electoral ticket, from
pieginning'to end, was no'minatqd. This was, weeks
after the Cresson meeting. Upon the Reading ticket
the FoaxET-ites place the twelve Douglas men that
were already on the Cresson ticket and put on fifteen
oilier Docglas men thus forming their straight out
Reading Doi'glas ticket.' Now let us examine the
proposition of Mr. Haldeman, the rejection of which
causes the Patriot to accuse tho Breckixridue men
of demanding ''such' terms as will insure their re
jection."" In order to form "a Union Democratic
anti-Republican ticket' Haldemax proposes tenclec
tors selected by the friends of Bell and Everett;
" f leefce electors of Hie Heading ticket which arc assented
toby all branches of the Democratic party " that is the
twelve Douglas electors on the Cresson ticket ;
" live additional electors from the Reading (Douglas
straight out) ticket, to be assented to by a majority

which causes the Patriot to charge the supporters of

The Jacksonville Democrat, of the 19th inst.. de
fines its position in the following words :
We have this day run up at our mast-head, the
names of Breckinridge and Lane, as our chsice lor
President and Vice President of the United States.
We have delayed doing so. not from a desire to
nhrink from responsibility, but to advocate tlie
cause of him whose prospects are brighest to tri
umph over Black Republicanism. We think our
only hope is on this ticket, and wo think at a
time like this, we should lay aside all party feeling
'NU onr colon to the must

Jt is now a death struggle with us, the verv salva
tion of the government depends on this election. If
I$reckinridge is elected ihe old ship of State 'will

ernment will be judiciously administured, and all
things will work together lor good. But if on tin
contrary. Black Republicanism reigns triumphant,
and the chair of Washington is disgraced by an ab

"PirH 1 a lon farewell to all oy'creatneM."
There can be no possible chance for cither Bell or

It is certain that both of them cannot need it. There

you have left but eleven votes for Liscols. No one
doubts his receiving many mre than that, and if he
does, Breckkeidgb and Douglas cannot both get ono
hundred and forty votes; and if they cannot both get
that number, they cannot both need the vote of tne
State to make an election. The most enthusiastic
devotee yf Douglas has not the remotest hope of
electing his electoral ticket in this State. They know
that their policy can only tend to aid Mr. Bell. In
refusing to acquiesce in Mr.BRrrrox's proposition,
they reject with all their might the only possible

Mr. Douglas, we think him better than Mr. Bell or

have the Douglas managers spoken in this State.
From what we could learn of their feelings towards

such would be tho result. The question now arises,,

dictation of such advisers, or will they reject such

John Bell in HXassachutictta.
We have hitherto shown what difierent sentiments
were entertained of Mr. Bell's record. North and
South. At the recent Massachusetts B ell-Everett
State Convention held for'the purpose of nomina
ting an Electoral ticket and candidates for Governor
and Lieutenant Governor, Hon. J. Thomas Steven
son of Boston, was the principal speaker. He said
to the Convention in reference to the charge that
Mr. Bell was a pro-slavery man :
"Whoever, therefore, whatever his purpose may
be,delibcrately-dcclares that the party, which you
to-day represent, is composed of "pro-slavery men,"
in any legitimate acceptation of the term, is either
a monomaniac, or he means to deceive.

the North and of the South; Tie who stood, like the
man that he is, beside John Quincy Adams through aU
his struggle for the right of petition; Ice who opposed
leiOi a gtoKing eloquence ihe annexation of Texas for the

constituents trere Wind enough, lo cau him uome; ne uiio
to-day finds opposition ii the South only on the ground
that he is too friendly to northern intesesls, may icell

At that Convention Amos A. Lawrlxce was nomi
nated as the Bell-Everett candidate for Governor
That night a Ratification Meeting was held. Mr.
Leverett Saltonstall, the son of the original Hart
ford Convention Blue Light Federalist, Leverett
Saltonstall, and who does Mr. Everett's correspond
ence, as Chairman of the Massachusetts Bell-Everett
State Committee, this Mr. Leverett Saltonltall
spoke. Tho reporter of the Massachusetts Bell
Everett organ, the Boston Courier, says :
.Our friends at the
South have to defend John Bell from the charge of
bcinir an anti-slavcrv man, and they have more rea
son, because they say, he stood manfully by John
Quincy Adams m ins neiense oi uie ngni oi peti
tion, and he battled against the Southern extremists
for the sunnort of the Missouri Compromise, and
aeainst its repeal. Mr. S. concluded his forcible re
marks by a warm eulogism upon Everett, and a
hearty and emphatic endorsement of the State ticket
which the Convention had to-day presented to the
voters e-f ..Massachusetts.
Hon. Geo. S. Billiard, the leading Bell orator of
that State, and one of the delegates, wc believe, that
nominated Mr. Bell, was present at that ratification
and also made a speech. In reference to their can
didate for Governor, he said :
"Amos A. Lawrence, the candidate who had been
selected to-day, he had known from his youth up,
and he could say to the people he was one of the
purest, one of the most honest, one of the most up

He hoped that, all over the Siate, the cac would be

the staple of political missionaries.
Mr. Clierrington, of Boston, next took the plat
form and cave, briefly, his reasons for leavimr tho
Republican party, in whose camp he reposed only
three weeks ago. He was Republican still, but a

as to"wnnaridAotothe people of a Territory could
prohibit Slavery. Some believed with Mr. Douglas,
that a Territorial Legislature could do so. Others
contended that the Territorial .Legislature would
have no such power.., That Congress having no
such power, could not' delegate tliat which it had
not to its creature, a Territorial Legislature. That
the Territories were the common property of all
the States, held in trust for them by their agent, the
Federal Government, and that the citizens of all the
States had a right to emigrate thereto with their
property, (whether negroes or spinning jennies,)
and that tlie only powers of a Territorial Govern
ment were, not to establish or distroy rights, but to
protect all who should go there, in whatever rights
they possessed, and that it was only when they
should be authorized to organize a State Govern
ment, and should assemble to form a -Constitution
that- they would have tho power to prohib
it property in Slaves. This difference, however,
was not regarded as practical for the time, for the
reason that it was a question for judicial construc
tion ; while all could agree in giving to the Territo
ries government, and the exercise of all rights there
under consistent xc'Uh the constitution leaving what those
rights were to be determined bv the Courts, as the
disputed points should arise. This fact was well un-'
derstood, admitted and explained on all hands dur
in!? the pendencv of the Nebraska-Kansas bill. Mr,
Douclas states it in clear and concise terms two
years after in the debate in the Senate, July, I85G,
He then said :
"Mv opinion with reirard to the nucstion (as to
whether a Territorial Legislature could prohibit
slavery,) which my colleague is trying to raise here,
has been well known to the Senate for years. He
tried the other day, as those associated with him
Used to do, two years ago and last year, to ascertain
wnat were my opinions on mis pumi m uie .-euras-ka

My answer then was and now is, that

the Constitution does not cary it there, no power

would not have anected my vote lor or against tlie
Nebraska bilL I should have supported t it just as
readily if I thought the decision would be one way as
the other. He' will also find tliat I stated I would
not discuss the legal question, for by the bill ice re
fared it to ihe Courts."
From this statement of the condition' of the ques
tion it will be seen how myself and others could vote
for you. notwithstanding our differences of opinion
as to how the Courts would decide this Question
when brought before them. And wc little supposed
that you would understand usj as concurring with
you upon wis ueierrea question, merely Because wo
continued to give you our confidence and support.
in 164a .Mr. tsuclianan wrote his bandtord letter, re
pudiating the doctrine of "Squatter Sovereignty,"
called by you " Popular Sovereignty" In the face
of that letter you entered zealously into bis support
lor tne fresidency lnJBoC.and yet with what justici
could l assert iroin that jact that you were en
dorsing his opinions upon this then unsettled ques
tion I y
The same kind of '"popular sovereignty" and
"non-intervention" that was laid down in the Clay
ton Compromise of '48. m the Territorial bills for
New Mexico and Utah in '50. and in the act organ
izing governments for Nebraska and Kansas in '51
was asserted in our platform at Cincinnati, and re
asserted again by the Baltimore Convention that
nominated Breckinridge and Lane, with a dis
tinct repudiation of the construction that had been
placed upon it by Mr. Douglas, and an equally clear
affirmance of the decision of the Supreme Court.
Now what has brought about this change? Why
is it that you and me, equally honest for I know
you too well to question your sincerity cannot act
together in the future, as we have done in the past?
In my opinion there is no valid reason. For once
in your life I fear you have permitted a mere obsti
nacy of opinion and a mistaken notion of consisten
cy to carry you too far. One false step always leads
to others, unless speedily retraced, until the unfor
tunate adventurer most frequently finds himself in
the wilderness and quagmires of inextricable ab
surdities. There is no reson why you and me should
not continue side by side in the good fight for that
Democracy which we both believe is the essential
support of Republican institutions; for after all
that you have said the only real difference between
us on this Territorial question is: has Suprem Court
decided this question against you and against Gen,
Cass, Daniel S. Dickinson and others, who con
curred in your construction? 1 think it has.
Gen. Cass and Mr. Dickinson admit that it has,
and yield obedience to that decision,- and are
earnestly supportingBreckinridge and Lane. You
think the Uourt has not decided the question
but I know you too well to suppose for a moment
that you will not readily acquiesce in that decision
whenever you are satisfied that it has been made
let that decision be what it may. Knowing you to be
honest in these convictions, then, and that they were
not encouraged by any feeling unfriendly to slavery
or to the rights of your own section, I would not
question your Democracy or your right to putiic
confidence- for this difference as to what has been
decided. You well know that the great body of the
Democracy of Tennessee are in a hand to hand strug
gle with their old enemy, the federal Opposition,
whom you have characterised to me as a "guer
illa party," encouraging the Black Republicans
You further know that Mr. Douglas is not in fact a
party to tho Presidential race in Tennessee, and
that the only possible effect which your support of
mm can have will oe to increase tne cuances ot
giving the State to Mr. Bell. But you say in your let
ter that vou must do this in order to adhere to the
principle of ''popular sovereignty," the right of a
Territorial Legislature to prohibit slavery. In this
you are not consistent, in my judgment, from the
fact that not a month before the meeting of the
Charleston Convention you stood side by side with
me declaring as your preference, if we went North
for a candidate, for Joseph Lane, of Oregon, whom
you said from personal, observation you knew to be
honest and competent. And yet Joseph Lane, who
but a few months ago, you preferred for President
over any other Northern man, stood then as now op
posed to vour construction ot "popular sovereign
ty," having declared in the House, of which you and
he were members, ma speech delivered ilarch it
"Congress cannot interfere with the subject of
slavery ; and the people living under a Territorial
government cannot do, under an organic law framed
by Congress, that which Congress itself could notdc.
It.(slavery) does nominally exist, and must always
exist, in the Territories, until they come to lorm their
State governments, and then it is their right to regu
late the matter as they please. I appeal to gentle
men, then, Northern men and Southern men, to main
tain and protect the rights guaranteed by the Con
stitution.' This speech was made in favor of the proposition
to admit Kansas under the Lecompton Constitution,
in opposition to the efforts of Mr. Douglas, Mr. Bell
and the Black -Republicans. You were standing
with Gen. Lane on that question. If a few weeks
before the meeting of the Charleston Convention
you preferred Gen. Lane, who had expressed such
sentiments in the House of which you were a mem
ber, why can you not support John L. lireckmridge
whose only offense is that of holding the samesenti
ments in'a conteit in Tennessee where the only ef
fect of withholding your vote will be to increase the
chances ot itell?
But there arc other and stronger reasons why
you should reconsider your declared purpose. AVhat
respect can you have for the professions of Stephen
A. Douglas, or of his support of your favorite doc
trine of "non-intervention J'- Who knows better
than vou do that he was the first to lead the Black
Republican cohorts in an unholy crusade upon that
doctrine, trampling under foot the Lecompton Con
stitution, arrogating to himselt ttie right as a Sena
tor to go behind the regular proceedings and say
what was and what was not the will of the pecplcof
Kansas intervening to have a Constitution fraiffed
according to 7iij wishes and aiding in defeating the
admission of Kansas into the Union, at a time when
yon. by your vote, givcp ppder oath, said she was
entitled to admission.
I remember well the incidents of that day of
treachery. I chanced to be in Washington. Great
alarm and anxiety was manifested on the part of
Democratic members of Congress in fact, on the
part of all national men on account of the threat
ened division in our ranks, which Mr. Douglas was
about to occasion on this question, arising Irom his
bitter personal dislike to the President. A feeling
of depression weighed heavily upon the hearts of
ali of you. In conformity with the usages of our
party, a caucus meeting was called to device some
means for preserving the harmony and unity of the
party. Through the kindness of one of tho Tennes
see members, 1 was secured admission as a specta
tor to tliat caucus. You will remember the deep
and solemn leeling which seemed to pervade that-
meeting, n conienjpiaiion ot the threatened deser

evils which such an accession to' the Blapk Repub
licans would bring with iL LecqtpptQii apd anti
Lecompion Bcmocrats came to that family meeting,
with the anxious hope of devising some compromise
that would preserve the harmony and strength of
the party. But Mr. Douglas did not come he
sought no compromise, he asked no peace, he de
sired no harmony; and the next morning upon the
Avenue he was found denouncing, in undignified
terms, those whom lie thought lie had a right to com
mand, but who liad dared to go into that Democratic
caucus and seek for harmony and peace. I am sat
isfied that you will bear witness to the truth of these
assertions, however widely wo may differ in our
present line of policy. Mr. Douglas immediately
plentiSed himself and his followers with the Black
Republicans on that question, and some whom he
led off into their ranks stand there to this day.
aiis associations in a great measure changed.
He wa closeted witji Seward, jvifh "Greeley,
with Colfax, with Blair & Co. Seward gave wav.

they were successful, and John Brownisnj tritfmphr

no one wiB. deny, that, fpr this good service, a'por
tion, of the leaders of the Black Republicans insist
ed that he should ba re-elected to the Senate frpm
Illinois. You will remember that a respectable cor
respondent from Washmgtion lo tlie BlackRcpublican
organ at Chicago, the journal, had stated that Mr.
Douglas made great boast to him of " what be had
done in tlie party to stop the progress of slavery and
to advance freedom, and of what he proposed doing
m the luture to destroy the intentions ol the slave
power" that he repeated many things to convince
his Black'Republican associates " tliat he was ear
nestly and honestly on the side of tho North against
the slave po wer, and should be found fighting .in the
ranks of.jth'e greatNbrthern partyin 1SC0'' and
that ; when enquired oflf'he knew where the course
he was then pursuing would lead him, he replied :
"I do, and I have checked all my baggage and taken
through ticket" that "this character of convcr-
saucn, so irequenuy employed oy ar. uougias
with those-with whom he talked, made the deepest
impression upon their minds, enlisted them in his
peiiaif, and fjianged in almost every instance, their

of Blair at that timo'the Black Republican mem

that Douglas wopld ultimately be with them, was
vrrfttin ftt lii. DoiHrlaa' rpnnpst flint thft interview
sought by Mr., Douglas with Blair was far.-this.pur-
posc, as was testified to by Mr. Colfax, through
;whoro the interview was asked. You will also re
member the statement of Judge Kellog in the House,
and a more recent statement of Senator Trum
bull, to the effect that at the time, of the
attempted passage of the Lecompton lonstitu
tion through Congress,. "Mr. Douglas called on Mr.
Covode, a. Republican member of Congress from
Pennsylvania, and requested him to go to Senator
Trumbull and get him to agree that he, Mr. Doug
las, should bo returned to the Senate by the Repub
licans of Illinois, and in consideration thereof he
would fight the Republican battles in 18SQ." 1 sup
pose you have seen a report of a recent speech of
Anson Burlingamc. (the same that eulogized Mfc
Bell iu tho House of which you -were a member, for
his vote against KaDsas,) delivered recently at Ban
gor, Maine, in which, appealing to theifriehds of Mr.
Douglas to support Lincoln, hgsays: "Colfax,
lilair and myseii nave nau irequeui priviuu inter
views with Mr. Douglas in mVown.liousc. On those
occasions Mr. Douglas freely made use of expres
sions of the deepest indignation against Southern
dictation." For these additional reasons, I must
again insist that there is no consistency in your sup
port of. Mr. Douglas.
Again : the chief difficulty with you is our asser
tion of the doctrine off Federal protection to Our
rights in the Territories. How came tills feature in
our platform ? Who suggested the necessity which
occasioned it ? You should remember that it comes
in answer to tlie newf and novel doctrine of Mr.
Douglas, conceived and promulgated by him for the
first time in Ms canvass with Lincoln in Illinois, of
"unfriendly legislation. ' The Supreme Court had
then but recentlyrtlelivered the "Dred ScOtt" de
cision, in which his theory of " Squatter Sover
eignty " was thought to have been overthrown, and
it was in view of this state of facts, and in answer
to Mr. Lincoln, that he said: "It matters not
what way the Supreme Court may hereafter de
cide as to the abstract question whether slavery
may or may not go into a Territory under
the Constitution," tho people have- the lawful
means to introduce it or exclude it as they
please, forthe reason that slavery cannot exist
a day ior an hour anywhere, unless it is
supported bv local police regulations. Those police
regulations can only be established by the local Le
IcgftlaTure; and if the people arc opposed to slavery,
theyvill elect representatives to that body who
will, by UNFRIENDLY LEGISLATION, effectually
prevent the introduction of it in their midst." This
,was a higher-lawism but little better than the highcr
'lawism of Mr. Seward, and I am sure you do not en
dorse it; and yet the position you occupy has that
appearance. What matters it with him if the Su
preme Court has decided against his favorite theory
of "Squatter Sovereignty?" Ho would teach the
people to disregard the Courts. When might makes
right, the Constitution becomes a myth
We had boasted throughout the country that there
was a great conservative principle in the Kansas
bill, which, if endorsed and sustained by the people.-
would settle tins question upon just and honorable
terms ; which principle was to organize the Terri
tories upon a plan that would secure to the free
States and the slave States every right to which
they were respectively entitled under the Constitu
tion; those rights to be determined by the Courts,
and when determined to be acquiesced in by all
parties. Mr. Douglas violated his plighted faith, and
became cliampion of "unfriendly legislation." His in
timate relation to the Kansas bill, when that measure
was pending before Congress and the country, gave
great importance to his new doctrine; and the na
tional Democracy throughout the country were
called upon to know what they had to say to it.
The Democracy of Tennessee, when they assembled
in Convention the following March. 185'J. adopted
in their platform the following fourth resolution as
their response :
"That we are satisfied with tho' views announced
by the Supreme Court of the United States in the
celebrated case of Dred Scott on the rights of slave
holders andjthe status of slavery in the Territories,
and are willing to abide by the principles announc
ed in that decision. Slavery and the rights of slave
holders are protected by the Constitution of the Uni
ted State, and by an appeal to the action of the judi
cial tribunals ol tha Union, until the formation of a
Constitution by the people of a Territory, and then
the State must decide for itself on that as well as
other legitimate subjects of government."
" Upon the committee who drafted this resolution
was Geo. Wi Bridges,' Douglas elector for the third
district ; L. IL Cardwcll, Douglas Elector for the
fourth district ; and J. .Knox Walker and B. H. Wil
liamson, proniiment supporters of Mr. Douglas from
the 10th district. Everywhere throughout the coun
try this doctrine ot Mr. Douglas was repudiated, ex
cept by his followers in a few Black Republican
States, and the principle declared that against such
"unfriendly legislation," in disregard of the Consti
tution and the decision of the Supremo Court, it
would be the duty of the r edcral Irovernment to
furnish protection, whenever necesary. Prepara
tory to the meeting ot our .national Convention,
when the Democracy of Tennessee had assembled in
Nashville to appoint delegates thereto, and when
you were selected,in compliment to your faithf ul pub
lic services, to preside over tneir deliberations, they
"That the Federal Government has no power to
interfere with slavery in the States, or to introduce
into or exclude it from the Territories, and no duty
to perform in relation thereto, but to protect, the
rights of the owner from .wron?, and to restore
fugitives from labor ; these duties it cannot with
hold without' violation of the Uonstitution."
Again when assembled in Convention atCharleston,
a majority of the committee on resolutions, repre
senting every slave State and two free States, and
reflecting the views of every Democratic State but
one, reported the following :
Resolved, Tliat the platform adopted by the Dem
ocratic party at Cincinnati be affirmed, with the fol
lowing explantory resolutions
First, That the government of a Territory organ
ized by an act of Congress is provisional and tempo
rary, and during its existence all citizens of the
United States have an equal right to settle with
their property in the Territory, without their rights,
cither of person or property, being destroyed 'or im
paired by Congressional or Territorial legislation.
Second, That it is the duty of the Federal govern
ment, in all its departments, to protect, when neces
sary, the rights of persons andfpropcrty in the Ter
ritories, anu wiiererer eise its uimsuiuuun.il
. Third, That when the settleis in a Territory have
an adequate population to form a State Consti
tution, the right of sovereignty commences, and be
ing consummated by admission into the Union, they
stand on an equal looting with the people ot other
states, and the 6tate thus organized ought to be ad

and unreliable are the best minds when once led
into error, and then excited by an over-anxious de

But. sir. there are still more important reasons
than any I have yet assigned, why you should not
support Mr. Douglas. The leading feature of your
liwtnrv as a nublic man. has been open and undis-
e-nised hostility to corrupt men and corrupt prac
tices, and to every species of extravagance in pub
lic affairs. This has been your specialty You have
a reputation in this respect second to no man in the

characterized him to me as a man whose adminis

deprecated his acts in connection with questions ot

of Mr. Douglas you know that such associations an
such v influences constitute the general rule, iou
farther know that there is nothing so wanting with
all parties as an elevation of tone and patriotism
among its public men, and that just in the propor
tion that tilts fails us will liberty itself decline.
How then, with your knowledge of tho man, can you
support Stephen A. Douglas? Sir, charity compells
mi to attribute it to that infirmity-obstinacy and a
false notion of consistency which have so often
marred thebeauty of the lives of public men, precip
itating them from one folly to another, until the nrst
and the latter parts of their lives have become so
inharmonious and contradictory as to confound the
understanding-of plain'thinking people, , and make
them mistrustthe virtue and integrity of all public
mCn"-: .i... nublic man in the State has leaned
farther towards the doctrine of Free Trade than
yourself. Y'ou have taught your old constituents
that the doctrine of Tariff Protection was a Federal
policy intended to enrich the few at the expense of the
many to rob' the toiling million for the benefit of
Capital that it was unjust and oppressive, and at
war with the genius of our institutions. Stephen A.
Douglas, so long, as he stood in favor with his party,
professed the same doctiine. From the time he en
tered Congress (tho Housp) in Dec. 1843, up to the
t,n nlmnilnned his party and joined the aboli-
litionists on the lecompton question, hc-opposeil the
Federal ppiicf, lie voted with tlje South Carolina

the Tariff of '42. He vqtoo.wiin meiii iur tne ir-
iff of '48. All the projects kfor admitting rauroau
iron free rof kduty were sustainod by his vote.
On tho 1st of Starch. 1855. a proposal to engraft a
now Tariff oni tho General Appropritipn bill being
under, consideration, Mr Douglas said :
i"I am for reducing the Tariff t a strict revenue
standard. JJAM a Jb bee JLRADK man to the iwjst ex
and at the same time I
collect revenue enough to defray the expenses of
the Government. In other words, I -am for no other
kind of a Tariff than a revenue Tariff." See

and principles never change. You" arid Iare still'stacd-
. ing uporithat principle- The Democratic party, fol
lowing thclead.of Breckinridge and Lane, are still
'standing Tlponitf but does Mr. Douglas stand 'twere?
Since his desertion of the Democratic party on the Le
compton question, and sines it has occurred to him
that the soutnern atates were not uicciy to lavor ms
' aspirations for the Presidency, he has been shifting
. . njnnnU.n,,n.tl... In
Mr. Hunter's motion to postpone the Tariff bill of
the last session ho did not vote, waiting doubtless to
see more clearly on which side of the fence he should
fall. His present position as the candidate of a por
tion of the Northern Democracy-has determined
that.question,- and In his recent roving 'pilgrinia-gc
as the stump candidate for tho Presidency, he has
cone into Pennsylvania, and at the capital of the'
State made a speech, which is reported by the Asso
ciated tress as iouows :
"Mr. Douglas commenced his speech by a glowing;
eulogy of Pennsylvania, as an empire within herselK
She as a State had a great interest in the Union.
Her interests require tho fostering hand of the
Government; she had not received the support from
the National-Government that she was entitled to.
SHenad the whole Union for a market, for her min
eral wealth was inexhaustible, and worth more than
mines of gold. Ho pitched generally into Congress
and the General Government, for the past few years.
He denounced the Government for paralyzing the
interests of Pennsylvania for several years. The
Government had failed to perform the functions for
which it was created. The system of government
must be changed, or disasters would occur, Either
it tended to reduce the expenditures or increase tho
revenues. The only remedy is a proper tariff. It
was proposed in Congress, but was overslaughed by
the interminable negro question. He went into an
argument defensive of the protective policy, especi
ally as regards l'ennsyivania's interest; but the
question will never be settled until the negro ques
tion is thrown out and repudiated."
Now, sir. what can you as an honest man, think of
such charlatanism as that! If he is honest in the
the views which he has expressed to the people of'
Pennsylvania, then ho has changed his position and
is no longer with you and mo upon a questionwhich
you have heretofore regarded as more vital and
practical than the abstract question of where the
sovereignty of a Territorial government commences,
and which you have always declared a willingness
to leave to the decision of .the Courts. If he is not
honest, then he is unworthy of your support, what
ever his real position may be.
It is seldom that we havt a candidate for tho
Presidency whose antecedents and present position
correspond with our own views in every particu
lar, but I must insist that no man in the Democratic
party has pursued a course so much at variance
with your own -professions and practices as Mr.
Douglas. Not one. He has been at one extreme
end of the party while you have been at tho other;
and I am happy to say that your extreme has been
upon the right side in the main, while his has been
as uniformly on the wrong side. There is now but
one step between him and Mr. Bell, as is daily being
rendered manifest throughout tho State. Those who
adhere to Mr. Douglas, under existing circumstances,
and thus give half-way support to our Federal op
ponents, are more likely, as in lS3G,to continue their
course and become thoroughly identified 'witli the
Opposition in all future struggles, than they are to
retrace their steps and take their old position in the
Democratic party again. I cannot believe that you
anticipate any such result, and yet with your expe
rience and enlightened judgment you can but tee
that such will be the 'tendency of all who follow
your present example.
Even admitting your premises to be correct, (a
laid down in your letter, your conclusions, I think,
are unwarranted. You acknowledge that your only
hope for the preservation of our republican form
of government rests with the Democratic party. I
it not your duty, then, to cling to that party and
labor to correct its errors, rather than withdraw
from it and thereby forfeit your position and influ
ence? I know you. will say that ifi supporting Mr.
Douglas you are not abandoning the party, and
yet 1 am sure you will have the candor to admit
that he is not a party really to the race in Tennessee,
except for those who desire to throw away their
votes and thereby increase the chances of Mr. Iwll,
without taking the responsibility of voting directly
for him. Y'ou and I have voted for Democrats in
past contests who were not our choice and with
whom wc did not concur in everything. And we
did so from patriotic motives. We did so because
we believed it better to hold together and preserve
our influence with the only party that, in our judg
ments, could save the Government, than to contri
bute, directly or indirectly, to the success of what
you termed the "Guerilla Opposition," the "canvass
economy'' party, who if they liave any fixed princi
ples of Government, they arc federal principles and
subversive, as we believe, of the rights and inter
ests of the people, and of Kcpublican institutions,
Why should we not do so again 7 .
Excuse the length of this epistle. I could have
said much more, but could not say less. It has
been prompted by the kindest feelings towards you,
and to promote principles which I am sure wc
hold in common. If anything that I have written
shall prove painful to you, you may be sure that
the occasion which has called it forth is equally
painful to me. Y'ou have liad no friend among your
lormer constituents who has esteemed you.more
highly or supported you more cordially than my
self. Lam saddened, therefore, to think that you
sanction any division in the ranks of your old party
in Tennessee, and can but still indulge some hope
that you will think better of the matter, and once
more beat the re viello for a union of our forces.
With an earnest desire for the preservation of Re
publican principles as embodied in our Federal
Constitution, which secures justice and equality to
me people and to the States and thereby the per
petuation of the Union, and without which the
Union would not be worth preserving; and with the
belief that all these depend, in a great measure,
upon the luture success of the Democratic party
that old party which has long honored you, and in
the service of which you have spent your best days.
