HUMPHREY MARSHALL, ofKy. SOLOMON 0. HAVEN, ofN. Y. J. MORRISON HARRIS, of Md. JACOB BROOM, Penn. Washington Citt, D. C., May IStb, 1866. Don't Like it. We have demonstrated, beyond all question or cavil, that, if the election of President were thrown into the House of Representatives, John C. Fremont would have no chance for an election ; that the Fillmore States would hold the balance of power-, that Mr. Buchanan would have no better chance than Fremont, and that the probable and almost ccrtain re sult of the contest in such an event would be the slection of Fillmore. In making this ex hibit we have also pointed to the alternative, if there should be no election by the House, to wit: that Mr. Breckinridge would become the President by virtue of his election aa Vice President by the Senate. This view of things is unpalatable to the leading presses of the Fremont party, foremost among which is the Jfew York Evening Pout, quondam or soft Bhell sham Democratic paper, but now in the service of Seward, Greeley, and Bishop Hughes. The Evening Post don't like it. In an article of a column in length, on Friday evening last, that press assails the American Organ, assu ming that 44 a policy has been agreed on among the more knowing ones of Mr. Fillmore's friends, to use his (Fillmore's) nomination for preventing Fremont from obtaining a majority of the electoral votes." The Post speaks of a "plan" which it says in substance is as fol lows : u That the Buchaniers and the' Know Nothings are to act together in such manner as to prevent the choice of Fremont by the electoral colleges, and having brought the elec tion by this means Into the House of Repre sentatives, are to unite upon Mr. Breckinridge as Vice President, leaving the Presidency va cant." Would not this be a >/ueer policy for the friends of Buchanan to adopt? Would they hold a razor for him to cut his own throat ? But how 44 unite?" Would Mr. Breckinridge be elected by any union of parties in the House ? He would be elected by the Demo cratic Senate. This is the "policy" is it? and this is the t<plan," is it? And so the "knowing ones of Fillmore's friends" have concocted this "plan" and adopted this "policy!" So says the Even ing Post. Our kindly disposition prompts us to relieve the fears of the Post, by stating, that we have had no intimations of any 44 plan " or 41 policy " on this subject, nor do we think any 44plan" or 44 policy" necessary, to defeat Mr. John Charles Fremont. It is only necessary to present to the country the consequences of the election of such a man. Our article, to which the Post refers, was never seen, nor heard of, by any one but our self till we gave it to our compositors?it was the result of our own individual reflections, and we penned it, to present to our friends and the country, the plain and palpable results which would flow from a failure to elect a President and Vice President by the electoral colleges. The 'apprehension has been, espe cially at the South, that if the election were thrown into the House, Fremont would proba bly be elected?and our object has been, in several recent articles to show that no such calamity would follow. If we thought that either Buchanan or Fremont could be elected by the House, we should deprecate, most se riously deprecate the election being thrown into the House?but we have no such appre hensions. The Post offers its condolence to Mr. Fill more, under its view of the 44 plan" and 44 pol icy" which that sapient press had discovered. It says: 44 Mr. Fillmore, good, easy man, in the innocence of his heart, supposes he is nominated to be elect ed. No such thing: he is only nominated to di vide the North, to draw off votes from Fremont, to help make John C. Breckinridge, President." Mr. Fillmore, who was nominated in Feb ruary, three months before the Republicans met in Philadelphia, was nominated, says the Post, to defeat the Rocky Mountain youth, who had not then been even seriously thought of by any man of common sense, and who will not, even now, be supported by any save those who are willing to sacrifice the Union to grat ify their prejudices on the question of slavery extension 1 The Post had better save its stock of condo lence,?it may need it for its friends. The Poat harps upon our admission that, were Mr. Fillmore to retire, the triumph of the Republican candidate would be certain. It ?ays that we acknowledge that Mr. Buchanan would be beaten if the issues, referring to the extension of slavery, wero to be made the sole issues in the canvass, and if the contest were to bo narrowed down to Buchanan and h re mont The Post and all other sham Republi can presses, together with the Washington Union, and all other sham Democratic presses, may not only repeat this as our rulmission, and make the most of it, but they take it as our assertion, and dwell upon it to their heart s content It is a melancholy truth?we regret that it is so, that fanaticism and demagoguism have so inflamed the people of the North, they are ready to accept this actional issue, if the South shall see Jit to temler it. Our purpose U and will be to prevent any such sectional conflict. The South has been appealed to and inflam ed against the North, by the advocates of Bu chanan, In the hope of uniting the South, and the North is daily appealed to, by such reck less presses as the Post, to unite againBt the South in the Presidential contest,?this union of sectional elements, North and South, is the only hope of both Fremont and' Buchanan, and yet the latter feeds himself upon the fan cy that, in such a sectional contest, he could carry enough of Northern suffrage to elect him ! Now, we frankly say, that were such a actional issue created, the Rocky mountain youth tcould sioeep the North j but, we say, that he would not receive one vote as a tribute to any merit claimed for him, but he would be voted for as the antagonist of the Southern sectional candidate. So in the South?Buch anan would be voted for simply as a sectional candidate, and not on any ground of merit. Those who are ready for such a secfional contest, with the certainty before them that sooner or later the predictions of George W ash ington would become a part of our nation s history, as the consequence of such a contest, may engage in it,?toe will not,?but we will protest against it to the last. There are thou sands upon thousands of men, both in the North and in the South, who will decline such a contest, and who will use their utmost exer tions to prevent it These men are the con servatives of the country?the friends of the Union?the supporters of Fillmore and Donel son in this conflict. It was for the purpose of uniting such men, in defence of the Union, that wo presented the facts?the relations of parties?the strength of parties in the House of Representatives, and the probable result of throwing the election into the House 1 It was to show that no such disaster as the election of either Fremont or Buchanan need be appre hended from throwing the election into the House I The editor of the New York Evening Post, judging of us by a knowledge of himself?not appreciating a frank and independent declara tion of editorial opinion?imagining perhaps, that some "plan" had been concocted by which the " Woolly Horse" was to be blown " sky high"?not realizing the truth, that we would vei*ure to affirm, that " the election of Breck inridge would be a lesser calamity than that of Buchanan," unless paid for it?seeing things tlirough a corrupt political atmosphere, by which he has always himself been sur rounded?the grovelling, huckstering wretch intimates, that if Breckinridge "would re ward in some manner those who vote for him," perhaps Mr. Buchanan might not be " imprac ticable" touching a similar "arrangement!" We have heard of men who were " as stupid as a post"?but we know of none so stupid as that " Post!" Why, sir, by whose votes would Breckinridge be elected? W ho could Mr. Breckinridge "reward" for their votes? Dem ocratic Senators t We apprehend that if the opportunity should be afforded them, the Dem ocratic Senators would elect Mr. Breckinridge Vice President with pleasure, and without " reward!" But we ask the Post's attention to another point, to show upon whom would rest the re sponsibility of Mr. Breckinridge's accession to the Presidency, if such an event should hap pen. The Republican States in the House would number either thirteen or fourteen, de pending upon the result of the elections in Il linois to supply two vacancies. The Democrat ic States in the House would number either ten or eleven, depending on the above elec tions in Illinois. There arc three divided States, and four Fillmore States. Sixteen States are required to make an election. If no election should be made by the House, then Breckinridge, if previously elected Vice Presi dent, would become the President. The Re publican States, (whether thirteen or fourteen) added to the Fillmore States would elect him?' or if added to the Democratic States would elect Buchanan. The Republican States l.y refusing to change from Fremont, would bring Breckinridge into the Presidency : they only would have the power, either to select between Buchanan and Fillmore, or to let Mr. Breckin ridge become President 1 The friends of the Post may perhaps try to make arrangements! It is thus clear that the Republican States, if the election is thrown into Congress, would have to decide between Buchanan, J illmore and Breckinridge ! The Post, in its article, says: " We do not know what Buchanan may say to this scheme of setting him aside ; but one thing at least is clear, that if his friends do not enter into some understanding with the Fillmore members of tho House, Breckinridge cannot be elected." This is just as ilclear as mud "?precisely as clear, and not a whit more so. The Fill more States and the Democratic States, inclu ding the divided States of Tennessee and Tex as, wight, it is certain, elect either Buchanan or Fillmore, if they chose, in the House. The Fillmore States and the Fremont States might, by a union, elect Fillmore, but all the Fillmore States being Southern States in the House, it is certain they would never unite upon Fre mont. But hoic or why it is necessary for the Buchanan members to enter into any " arrange ment" with the Fillmore members to elect Breckinridge is inexplicable! No such undtr standing between them could be necessary to prevent an election by the House, for the Hill more States would vote for him, and the Re publican States, by voting for Fillmore, cou'J elect him, and prevent Breckinridge from be coming President. The Republican States, l>y refusing to vote for either Buchanan or Fill more, could and term Id bring Breckinridge into the Presidency! We thus give the Post and its friends the advantage of knowing the fact, that if the elec tion of President goes into the House, tho Re publicans will have a fair chance to try their hand at that system of " arrangement" which it so readily imputes to the American mem bers, in connexion with Mr. Breckinridge. But we must add by way of conclusion, that, whilst it ia perfectly evident, that in the event of their boing no election by the people, either Fillmore or Breckinridge will be made Presi dent, it is manifest that with proper exertion on the part of the conservatives of the coun try, Fillmore and Donelson can and will be elected by the Electoral Colleges. Mighty changes arc going on in the popular mind.? The people, North and South, are tired of sec tional conflicts. The American nominations are rapidly gaining (strength. No man of truth will deny this. It is not true, as stated by the Post, that the friends of Fillmore " now rest what little hope is left them, upon the House." It is not true, as stated by the Post, that his friends " fully understand that there is no chance of his elec tion by the people." These statements are glaring falsehoods?they will deceive nobody. They are the cunning lie$ oi our enemies. The Montgomery Advertiser. Our attention has been called to the Mont gomery Advertiser, Alabama, of 28d August, in which somebody, in that paper, makes a great hullabaloo because wc stated early in August that there was then 44 no Democratic electoral ticket in the State of New York." It is not our practice to examine more than three or four of our exchanges,?these are prominent opposition papers,?we leave the residue to our assistant, and, on an inquiry, we understood, when we wrote the article, that no such ticket had been formed, but that, in New York, it was usual to form the docto ral tickets in September. We so stated, but tho point was wholly unimportant, it was a matter of not the slightest consequence, and yet the Advertiser takes the occasion to allude to it as our "usyal disregard of political truth." We pity the man who could utter such a sen timent on such an occasion. But the writer of the article makes another charge in the fol lowing paragraph, in the same article. lie says: 44 We shall not hypocritically express surprise at such palpable, inexcusable misstatements, but will say that we are sincerely surprised that South ern men will patronize that4 Organ' whose editor, Vespasian Ellis, openly and boldly advocated the restoration of the Missouri Compromise last year in his columns, and at the June National Council. We have the files of his paper, and can prove his anti-Southern, anti-conservative views." The writer of that article has evidently so much hatred towards us, he lias hazarded his own reputation for veracity, in making state ments to prejudice our circulation, and he adds, that he 44 has files of our paper to prove" what he alleges. In order to place oursolf completely in the power of that writer, who has our files before him, wo state, that ntver, at any time, on any occasion, or in any place, did we "openly and boldly" (pr otherw'se) "i Jvocate the res toration of the Missouri Cot promise." Do we meet the issuo or not? 'f not, will the writer please say in what Mhape he wishes our denial? If we have met the i.wue, will the author of the charge please yo ahead and fur nish his proofs ? Colonel Fremont on the Stand. The New York Commercial Advertiser of yes terday evening contains the following account of an interview with Colonel Fremont by Mr. B. F. Cook, a resident of Staten Island, and a highly respectable stationer of New York city. The statement was made at a Fillmore and Donelson meeting at Factoryville, Staten Island, on Satur day last, as follows: Mr. B. F. Cook made eome interc-eting and im portant statements lespecting an interview he had with Colonel Fremont on the subject of his alleged Romanism. It was in substance this : Some friends having desired to enlist the speaker in the cause . of so-called Republicanism, he expressed a desire I to have all doubts removed on this mooted ques tion, but said that nothing short of an assurance from Colonel Fremont's own lips would satisfy him. An interview was arranged for. The ob ject of the visit being understood by the Colonel, he avowed himself ready to answer any questions proposed. Mr. Cook proposed the following, and received to each the answer annexed: 14 Were you married by a Roman Catholic priest?" 441 wasthe Colonel's lip quivering as he spoke. 44 Did you at the time believe in, or profess to believe in, the Roman Catholic religion ?" 441 did not." 44 Have you before or since, or at any time, pro fessed the Catholic religion ?" 441 have not." Here Mr. Coqk bowed, to s:gnify that he had no more questions to ask. Col. Fremont then volunteered some remarks to the following effect: that while in California he at tended no church, and that he occupied his Sun days in reading and writing, and in attending to such matters of business as he thought of import ance. Mr. Fremont further said: 441 am frequent ly interrogated by all partie s on this subject. I presume the delegation now waiting for me up stairs wish to interrogate me on this point. When they do; I shall put the most favorable construc tion on the matter that I can. I wish to offend none, but to secure the votes of all. Only this very morning I have a letter from Maine, paying that unless I make a personal denial of Romanism, and that I am or have been a Roman Catholic, that State will be lost to the Republicans; and another letter from Indiana, telling me that if I will author ize my friends there to say I am a Roman Catho lic, they can secure for me a large German and Irish vote. I have to frame my replies so as to secure the votes of all. There is now a deputation waiting for me, whose errand I doubt not is the same. It is best to say as little about this matter as possible, and we must manage the thins as well as we can, so as to get the votes of both Hides."? Here the interview terminated,. Mr. Cook's state ment was listened to with profound interest. The Commercial Advertiser thus alludes to this curious affair: ?" No one who knows the narrator will question the entire veracity and moderation of his state ment. We have been for some time cognizant of all the circumstances of the interview, and of the causes also that led to it But as they were men tioned to us without any permission to publish, we have not felt at liberty to make them the subject of editorial comment The gentleman himself very properly stated them publicly on Saturday night, ?s will bo seen by our report of a spontaneous Fill more meeting on the island; and we need not therefore impoee any farther restraint upon our selves respecting them. Had the whole story been told?all the antecedents of the actual interview-? it would have been decidedly amusing, revealing how closely every aocess to the distinguished Re publican candidate is carefully and jealously watch ed by the ' ftlends' who seetq to have been ap pointed his custodians." It appears, therefore, from Fremont's own con fessiou, that he occupies the precise position we hare a.-aigned Wm. To the Catholics be clotures to be regarded as a Catholic?to the Protestants as a Protestant. He desires, io a word, to carry water on both shoulders, after the fashion of dem agogues all the worW over. We wonld direct the special attention of both Catholics and Protestants to Colonel Fremont's own statement as recorded above. If, after read' ing it, they do not crrive at the conclusion that he is utterly unworthy of the confidence of either de nomination, they must be differently constituted from the American people of the past generation. IIow, for instance, would a candidate for the Pres idency have been regarded in 1812, who should have refused to state whether he wns in favor of or opposed to the then existing war with Great Britain ? And who Bhould have stated when re quested for his opinion, that if he declared him self in favor of the war, he would lo9e New Eng land?or if he declared himself opposed to it, that he would lose the Middle and Southern States ? | Would not such a candidate, at that day, h .ve been booted from the field with the contempt of the whole country ? Is the present generation of Americans less manly, leas honorable, less hostile to political Machiavellian than the last? We are not willing to admit that it is. How then can it regard the disgraceful position which Fremont, by hit oion confention, occupies in the Presidential canvass with other feelings thau those of disgust and ab horrence ? Still Another.?The UidoiiTiTthe name of a new daily, just started at Terre Haute, Indiana, which supports Mr. Fillmore and Union principles! We wish it success. Awn Another.?The American, is the title of a new weekly paper about to be published in Orange, New Jersey. It will support Mr. Fillmore. Come Over.?A letter from Opelika, in Ala* ama, to the Montgomery Journal, dated Sept. H, con tains the following statement: " I learn that three of the most prominent Bu chanan men, who had subscribed largely to the Democratic barbecue at Opelika, have turned over for Fillmore to-day, and thai the barbecue, which was to come off here on Saturday, Is a failure." I11 i.lmork in Georgia.?The Macon Citizen says: From mcny letters recently received at this office, we are satisfied that nothing is wanting but an ac tive and determined effort on the part of the friends of Fillmore, to give him the vote of Georgia. The people are against the politicans in this contest, as sure as you are born, reader. Let our speakers go forth, and let our Fillmore clubs and Fillmore men of means, circulate the documents! Let our Executive Committee wake up to the importanco of the occasion, and let us all work from this time till the day of election, and that day is ours ! Maine Elsction.?The election for Governor, members of Congress, and of the Legislature, took place in Maine yesterday. It has resulted in the election of Mr. Hamlin, the Republican candidate, by 2,000 majority, it is supposed, over the Whig and Democratic candidates. Tho voto last year stood as follows : For Merrill, (Repub.) - - - . 50 ago " Wells, (Den..). . . . . J'S! Reid, (Whig.) It is probable that nearly the whole Congres sional delegation and a large majority of the Leg islature is u Republican."

He was met at Newton and escorted to Waltham by a procession of the civil and military powers. Mr. Haines addressed him, welcoming him back. Mr. Banks replied in an elaborate speech, occiidv ing over an hour and a half in its delivery. The Louisville Journal states that Mr. Alexan der, of Woodford, Kentucky, has purchased the celebrated race horse Lexington. He met Mr Tenbroeck in England, and the purchase was made. The price paid was $15,000. This is the highest price that was ever paid for any horse in the I nited States.

" SUN RISE AND~MORNING STAR OUR attention has been called to nn ad vertisement in Saturday evening's paper, by a stove dealer in this place advertising to cupply'their custom jra with the Cooking Stove SUNRISE, for which we are the sole agents for tb'.'s place having purchased the right of sale for^the stove in Washing ton from the inventor and manufacturer. The above dealers advertising the 8tov0 came in possession of two of them, which wer^ sent as samples before our purchasing the right of them. They refused to give them up on an t>rder for them from the inventor. ? m explanation necetsary to the public to put mem on their guard and inform them they can only Cotain the stove from us direct from the manu facturers. Tliore are four more of them in this mar ket, sent as samples, perhaps they may get them. After having over twenty-five years experience in the stove business, we pronounce them to be the very beat flat-top cooking stove wo ever saw or sold; they will do all we warrant them to do?to give perfect satisfaction. We would also caution the public from buying an article called the Lioht Stkekt, made to represent the celebrated Morning Star, but which has none of the advantages attached to the Star. We warrant the "Sunrise," flat-top, and the " Star" to perform all we say for them. Please call and examine for yourselves, next door to C. Woodward's old stand. No. 818. Please read our former advertisements. We annex the order for (ho two Sunrise stoves C. WOODWARD A SON. P.ILAD.LHH1A, July 14tlv lgfW>. Messrs Johnsow A Out: Gents; Please deliver to Messrs. C.
