'influenced (or their Ddiaocratio friends) by any such un worthy considerations, even if true, much lens when they know, and you know, that tbe charge is wholly false, and without tbe least foundation for even a suspicion.

But not content with villifying tbe Republicans you can t restrain your in ve terato hatred to. any thing like inde pendence in men, to think for them selves, and act honestly, but must de nounce Cooley, Gant and Bauer, as over ambitious, disaffected Democrats" and 'tools' berauso they will no longer bo led by your corrupt and tyrannical rule. A" part of these samo men, tho Democ racy in its purer days delighted to hon or. But in these days of political cor ruption, and Court House, fence swin dles, Cooley and -Gant and all the friends who daro think for themselves, are denounced by the pro-slavery and nigger loving cliqne, because they will not endorse their doings. And becaufto Frank Bauer, an honest German, who was rejected by 'this same clique, because he was too honest, if put in charge of the peoples' money, to pay off the bogus Orders of Auditor Quick, dare to-be a candidate in opposition to tho well tried and faithful Michael, who knows well all tho tricks of tho office, and who seems to bo the only German in all the county, but has to much bon sty to be trusted wlt an efjco fiader tixe clique. ' .' For this audacity, Bauer is to bo at ouoe condemned to the clique ing gal atine, and represented as "not being qualified for tho office," "a tool for Black Republicans and Know Nothings," and in the very next sentence they charge that "Mr. Bauer is a German "a (wäi. her cthe Catholic Church in god stand. ing keeps a store and sells beer. What is this change made fur, ge. tlomen of the "Court House Clique;" but fur the purpoio of keeping in your ranks such Know . Nothing allies as Uolman and Martin M. Ray ? We hope soon to see the day, when honest moo every where, will be allow ed to go to the polls and voto as indo pcndoiitmeo, and not as dictated to by a fow ofSco-holders, and ofSco-suekcrs, snd Congress aspirants, and salaried attorneys around the Court House who composo tho "Court House Clique." The Court House Clique. The Democrat of last week howls over our cxpobe of the doings of the Court Houe Clique, like a dog with the scald head, and challenges proof that tho Clique favored tbo proceedings of the Commissioners, in their clandestine let ting of tho Court House Fenco to Mr Edwin May. Our neighbor has a ster eotyped argument whenever dritcn to tho wall, on which he chiefly relics in this matter. That argument is, to brand all who oppose him as "liars" and their facts "falsehoods." Wo havo bad 'occa to say heretofore, that this kind of ar gument is peculiar to cowards and crimU rials, and regret to see our cotemporary indulge in their use. Wo did charge, and now repeat it, that the action of the County Commissioners must, from the nature of things, hdvo been known to, and approved ly, tho leaders of the Cour Ilouse Cliquo; and all this show of opposition t buttfufo lelicvt, to throw; dust into tb peopled eyes until ' alter the election in October. Thoro is not an intelligent man in the County, who knows personally Messrs. Hiatt and CaUee, that bolieve. that they would for a moment think of assuming suck re sponsibility, in opposition to the vieics and vishss of theirjparfy leaders. The idea is absurd; the-assumption prepos terous, and he that proclaims it an ar rant demagogue. If the Court House Clique are noir, and always havp been, opposed to secret letting, to partisan favorites, of tho County improvements, why "has their voice rcpoH.ed in silence, nntil this net Of contracting tho Court House Fence? Was there a public, letting of tho poor houso farm when the rich bottom lands were private) sold to a partüan favor ite?' Did the Commissioners advertise for proposals, and award the land to tho highest responsible bidder? ' It is notorious that they did not. Whoro, then, wcro your Court - Ilonse Clique, wbo no claim to bo tho. exclusive .sentinels op ino waicn tower, to guido tle public treasury, and where was 'tbeir voico In denunciation of their agenU? Echo an swers, whore? History answers at the back of your Commissioners, coun selinj and advising their civrse. When our FOor House was to be built, did. the Commissioners advertiso and invite '. proposals, and let to the lowest responsible bidder? , On tbo con trary, as iu tbe taso'of.tho Court House Fence, they kocw- 'of parties wbo ex pected and trtjAo! to bid, and thus knowing, they' privately contracted it to this pet partisan, imported from Indian apolis, to meet tbe view of this Court House Cabal. Did theso men then do ncunco this coureo of proceodure? Not in tbe least; but their stentorian voices, and vigorous gooso quill, wero as silent as the chambers of death. It is with bad grace at this trying hour.that they aseume to have been, and aro notr, the opponents of all this extrav agance, and donounco thoso who charge them with conniriogat it Thy have by their silent approval, and active sup port of the County Commissioners, during all these operations, assumed a responsibility that the poople of tho county will not allow them to throw off. To this responsibility, citizens of old Franklin, we urgo you to pin them fast. At tho ballot box in October, record your verdict, and let it bo such as will insure thorosgh wiping out of this old nest of officials, that has been (or year3, through the Clique, designat- ing their successors for tho Tarioiij County offices. Now is the the accepted time mark your men, and the result will bo felt in all time to come. Sheriff Glidewell It is a well settled axiom tbat it is best to "tell the truth if it shames the Devil." Mr. Glidewell, by infringing this rulo has got into a tight place. He first denies tbo charge that ho was drunk ic, at tho Union pic-nio and gives it the lie direct He next impliedly ad mits the truth of the charge, and pleads "that if ho was drunl he is ashamed of it, and will do so no more." This is too plainly a plan of the "baby act," as tho overwhelming testimony of Mr. Colescott has nailed tbo qncetion to the counter. The influences of the Court Houso clique aro ruinous to young men from tho country aa is clearly demonstrated in the case of Glidewell and others wu have occasion to name hereivfter. The between Glidw;i and Colescott is now fairly made. Colescott makes the charge and Glidewoll denies it. We Invited the proof and Colescott gives it. Tho jury are to try it in Oc tober and wo wait' with confidence the verdict.- Every voter should remember that ho casts his vote as a sworn juror in this case. Mr. Colescott is a bold man snd challenges legal or other investiga tion -ho is a responsible mau, but we aro confident no big lawyer few will grow out of it. Tbo truth is, he has got GlidcTvcll by the "nap of the nock," and you should son! his political courso by your verdict of guilty a"V the ballot box. . .. . The Howl of the Black Democracy Over the Court Houso Fence is sim ply ridiculous. Why" is it that, when the Commissioners sold out tho fat job of building our Court Houho, and made arrangements to spend $30,090 of mon ey on that edifice, that tlo rfghtcous Indignation of the Black Democracy was nf.i aroused? Was the plan and specifi cations of tho Court House first settled, and then a fair, open and j-ublio letting of the same had? "Nary time." Did the party everobjoct to this proceeding? How about tbo Poor House, built at an expense of $17,000? Both tlicso jobs wero sold cut ip sub stantially the same manner , that this fsuco has bcon disposod of, but the par ry has held up their hands' for both these Iniquities. Then why this noiso and howl. It is nothing but a fa reo to de lude tho people. Tbo Clique havo sot up this man of straw, and are now tig orously trying to beat it down in hopes of withdrawing the attention of tho people from thotruo issues of tho day from our Treasury operations from tho iueornpeteney and-unfitness for office of some of their candidates, and past extrayaganco and profligacy with the people's money. ... 'Look to your interests, tax-payers see-to it that you are not gulled by this clap-trap hue and cry concerning tbe Court Houso Fvtuc, which is but a tri flo, whoo iC pared with tbo past conduct i U cxtravaganco of the party. "No Democrat was ever elotted President of the United States after the partr was organiz ed, who was not a nominee of tho party." Democrst Th above frank admission, is so an tipodes to the. stereotyped declaration that the party nowclainung tobe "Dem ocratic' was organized with tho foun dution of the Government, and has beep io .power almost ever since, that we nrust do our .neighbor the codit of truthfulness, i'f porchanco it be by acci dent Let us no moro hear tho dema gogical cant which claims Washington's Jefferson ;s, ''MadhionV and" Monroe's administrations aspart of tlio.iiistory of this bogus '.'Democracy." Tho truth tt history will sometimes leak o,-and ail men "who rcd," know" that no ucb party as the Democratic", party ever had an "organization" in this rountry until after tho first election of Goncrnl Jackson. It is time that this "self evi dent lio" was; branded as it deserves, and domagogues frowned down, who assurao to themselves under this corrupt slave-ridden organization, to bo tho par ty whoso virtues and examples wo should all strivo to emulate, but upon such as sumption, which can only "be likened to him who "steals the livery of heaven to serve tho Devil in." Union Correspondence. Whitcomb September, '27, 1858. Mr. Epitob: Our quiet tillage was edified on Friday evoning last by polit cal speaking, and has been the first mat ter of stiring interest, since tho memor able pic-nic at which "Jack" Glidewell got so gloriously drunk and about which he has made such an ass of himself. The speaking was advertised for the little. "Brass piece" of tbo "Democracy," Daniel D. Jones Esq., of self-imposing importance. After tho courtesy shown this arrogant demagogue,. by Mr. Cum back at Mt. Carraol, and "Dans" boast ed announcement ol his intended reply, after Cum back's speech at Brookville, and inritation for public discussion, wc fairly presumed. Id inviting Judge Gant and Reuben Cooley Esq., to be present and one or both participate in the discussion. Mr. Jones, however, instead of inviting Judge Gant to a general discussion of the issues beforo tho country as Cumback did Jones at Mt. Carmcl, refused, to discuss with them unles they, would avow themselves Republicans, and thereby showed the white feather; but finally consented that Gant might reply on conditions and under restrictions that destroyod all fuirncsa and proper investigation. The Judgo, however, pitched into him with such decided effect that Jones got mad and roared liko a caged animal. The moro he growled the harder tbe old flannel jacket Judge tightened the screws, until Dan fairly caught in the meshes of Lecomptonism "caved in." The speech of Gant was a trump, com pared with that of Dan's. He showed more political information cloar pow ers of argumentation readier wit, and tho self-possession that marks the man. Tho crowd insisted on Reuben Cooley Esq., spoaking. Mr. O. who is a plain truthful man and formerly Couhty Commissioner, took up the Court House clique and county expenses, and expos ed their doings and extravaganceAvllh n master hand. It was not only costly, Court Houses, Jails, Assylums and Iron fences that cat up our taxes, but the fact tbat some men could xcear fino gold watches gold headed canes and drink mint jalips, and pick their testh on the Kteps of thö Burnett. Houso at tho ex pense of the people that wo now groan Under these honvy tyurdens. Mt.'Coo ley charged no one with theso things but thb very mention "Of tho subject scorned to titirup tho bitiwest bilo with in the -'Daniel dome to judgment." .

A mad dog ap proaching water could not have evinced more desperation than'did 'big Mindy" at the mention of gold watches and Burnett Houso julips.

F. M. 8t Louis Corres'poadsace. St. Loui, Mo., Sept. 20, 185S. Friend Fostir : I promised in a former letter to say something of tho election contest in this Congrcsviona district,- between Frank I Blair, Jr., and J. R. Darret. No new develop ments havo been mado' public. Tho ballot boxes havo boon undergoing in spection for a week past, und the result of the inspection will be known soon This inspection was opposed to tho bit ter end by the Darret Democracy. All kinds of objections and subterfuges were urged against it. The order of the Commissioner to the County Clerk to deliver up the ballots, was attempted to bo forestalled, and tho Clerk was threat ened with. prosecution and imprion- ment should ho obey the order. But nil to no purpose. The order was issuod, and tho Clerk obeyod it. There is some- thlHg vory suspicious in this strong op position to tho inspection. Tho Barret ruen bad all along declared that the frauds wero 'perpotrated upon Blair's side, ahd not upon theirs. Still, when it wns offered to decido the matter by actual examination of tho votos, they mado an awful howling and groaning, and went into violent parbxj'sms about tho "sacrcdncss of the secret ballot," and the "sanctity of tho ballot-box," whonat tbo same time they knew that the.objuct of preserving tbo ballots, was that they might bejnepectcd in cascof an election contest upon thö ground of fraudulent votes. In a dozen other instances they Have given rise to stronger suspicions of baso villainy, all of which convpiro to provo positively that it is tho sanctity of fraud which they wish lo preserve, in stead of tho "sanctity of tho ballot box." . . In Illinois., there is now. a hot, three cornered political figbt-eacK' corner charging iipon the other two witU-groat fury. .Tho "National Democrats," tho Douglas Democrats and the Republi cans, aro tho three parties. At Centra lia last week, during the," Illinois State Fair, which was held at that place, a grand demonstration wus raiecd by each ol tho Democratic wings, Ex-Uov, Rey nolds leading tho "Nationals," and U. P. Joinder tho .Douglasites. A groat deal of grapo and hot shot was thrown into each others camp, as the meetings were held at the samo hour. Between theso two wings -there is ns half way place; no chanco for a half "National," nd half Douglas brother. Such men us your Holmans'and Lines and Joneses could not get along, trimming between Douglas and Buchanan, as they aro do ing in your District, but would be un ceremoniously kicked off .either wing with the profoundest contempt. This part of Missouri is looking with tho greatest Interest upon tho Illinois con test.. ' Last weck I bad the pleasure ofboing brouirht in company with Senator Trumbull for an hour or so. My pro conceivod idea of the Senator's appear ance wus fully met. I gave you a brief description in my last letter of the per sonal appearance of Douglas. Intellect ually, neither of them will suffer by a comparison with tho other. But mor ally, there is the greatest contrast. In Judge Trumbull you may readily see the marks of a statesman, controlled by strictly temperate and moral habits, and by tho highest honor. He evinces this too, not oi ly in his. personal ap pearance, but in his conversation. Such marks are entirely foreign to Douglas. Physically, ho is about fivo feet ten in- ches high, blcndor and straight. He is sanguine of Republican success in Illi nois, and says thathe never saw abetter sentiment prevail throughout the State. The emigration to Missouri at this imö is' very great, considering , the pressure of the times. Thoro are two main causes for this. The first ii the Free State' spirit which is rising, espe cially along tho border of tho Slate. Tho defeats of this element in the last flections will not materially injure it. Indeed, it tho frauds which were prac ticed upon tho Frco State -population can be fully exposod, it will giro the free element a greater impuso than it had before. The second causo is tbe "Graduated Laud" arrangement ia the State, by which any on coming soob, with about sixty-fire dollars, can secure them a tract of three hundred and twenty acres of land. I will explain this arrangement more fully at some other time. Of the emigration to this State, thero Is a considerable portion from Indiana, several of whom have settled in St. Louis. By the way, this city is conccdoJ to bo one of tho best points in tho West for a young roan with a good trado or profession, provi ded he Is well furnished with the irr important metallic elements, consist nr 'of brass in the face, iron in the win, and silver in the tongue.
