In the above paragraph, issue is taken
with our statement that there were South
ern democratic presses which had declined
to support Buchanan on account of his
squatter sovereignty heresy, and had de
nounced that doctrine. We are not in the
k habit of making assertions unsupportable
by proof. We give below a list of South
ern democratic papers who refuse their
support to Buchanan, on account of his
free-soil record, and Squatter Sovereignty
ism. Two of these, we learn, the Thibo
deaux Minerva and Franklin Banner have
run up the Fillmore standard. There are
others beside these, but we cannot at this
moment lay our hand on them:
Columbia (S. C.) Times,
Thibodeaux (La.) Minerva,
Darlington (S. C.) Flag,
Tee Dee (S. C.) Times,
Sumpterville (S. C. Watchman,
Franklin (La.) Banner,
Sumpterville (S. C.) Times,
Gannaway's Brownsville (Tenn.) Journal,
Newberry (S. C.) Mirror, and a Plaque
mine (LaJ paper whose name we cannot
call to mind.
These papers are not among our ex
changes, but we have seen statements re

give them claim to places on our list. We

positions on questions vital to the South,
and characterized them as in the highest
degree, dangerous and unsound. It defi-j
antly rejects the control of the democratic
clique of Louisiana, and speaks its mind
freely in regard to the Cincinnati candi-
date, and more especially his Squatter
Sovereigntyism. Though not formally op
posing him, it is really opposing him most
formidably and effectively. In a late artij
cle it uses the following .language: "The
Delta has not declared any intention d1
formally opposing Buchanan, though it is
perfectly true that his notions of Squatter
Sovereignty, are not relished by its editors any
more than by three-fourths of the earnest and
intelligent patriots of the South."
James Jwhneon and Paratt,
Three prominent democratic Tennessee
politicians, have declared Squatter Sover
eignty constitutional aud right and proper,
and defended it as orthodox democratic
doctrine. James Buchanan, the democratic
caudidate for the Presidency has asserted
it clearly and positively, and Martin Tan

candidate for President, has de
clared that he supports Buchanan because

But, seriously, why have our neighbors

The following paragraph from the New
York Evening Post, formerly Freesoil Dem
ocrat, now Black Republican, of July 17,
looks a little like there was cheating around
the board. Says the Post:
''Certain of the friends of Bachanan io this
quarter are attempting to procure support for
him by means which are not allowed to come
to the knowledge of his Southern supporters.
They give the strongest assurances that Mr. Bu
chanan, if fortunate enough to be elected, will
so admsnistcr the laws as to give the real inhab
itants of the territories an opportunity of ex
cluding slavery while yet in the territorial con
dition. It is even said that Mr. Buchanan has
written a letter to that effect a letter strongly

Eu Referring to the fact that Van
Buren supports Buchanan purely on ac
count of the Squatter Sovereigntyism in
his letter of acceptance, and to Van Bu
ren's labored and conclusive argument
showing that this is the meaning of the
Wheatland letter, the Union and American
of yesterday says
"Van Buren believes that it is constitution
al for a territorial legislature to establish or
prohibit slavery. lie understands Mr. Buch
anan as endorsing whatever is constitutional,
and that therefore he endorses Lis theory up
on the subject."
Men of the acknowledged intelligence of
our neighbors should be ashamed to put
forth an argument so utterly weak and pue
rile. Van Buren understands that Buch
anan's views are constitutional, and he, as
a matter of course, knows that his own are ;
he gives a certain construction to a disput
ed constitutional point, and he takes it for
granted that Buchanan coincides with him,
because he understands that Buchanan's
views are constitutional.
And this forsooth, is the process by which
Van Buren has learned that Buchanan is a
squatter sovereignty advocate. Our neigh
bors would have their readers believe that
Van Buren did not read Buchanan's letter,
wherein he gives his views on the point, to
ascertain whether Buchanan agreed with
him but reaches his conclusions by a syllog
ism. Oh crackey, try it again.
Circumstances alter Cases. The Cen
tral Georgian says: When Mr. Fillmore
was run for the Vice-Presidency in 1848,
he received the full whig vote of the State
of Georgia, and 6ome thousands of demo
cratic votes, giving him a majority over his
competitor, notwithstanding his record on
the subject of slavery was of such a black
character prior to that time, according to
the democratic prints of the present day.
By a Providential act he ascended to the
Presidential chair, and from that day to
this he has shown as fair a 6heet on the
slavery question as any public man in the
whole country. Not an act in all his offi
cial or private life since then can be point
ed out, showing him in the least degree
sectional or favoring the North against the
South. Having made the tour of the
Southwestern Slave States, he announced
on the steps of the State-House door in
Montgomery, Ala., that the anti-slavery pre
judices of his early education had been obliter
ated by what he had seen in the South of the
happy condition of the slave. Notwithstanding
all this, however, there are men, old whigs,
who voted for Mr. Fillmore in 1848, but
went over to the democracy in the Toombs
and Stephens stampede, who now denounce
him as a freesoiler on account of his early
Vanderbilt at toe Bottom. Among the
items of news from Nicaragua, by the Gra
nada, which arrived at New Orleans on the
25th, we find the following:
It was reported al Grevtown that Walker had
intercepted a letter from Vanderbilt to Rivas, show
ing that the former was at the bottom of the late
attempt on the part of the latter to bring about a
counter-revolution against th new Government.
It ia said that Vanderbilt promised every pecuniary
and other aaoisUoc to sustain R.vaa and his co
conspirators in their proounciamento. It is also
said that the letter has been sent by eipress to
SSf The Union and American 6ays that
we are fonder of quoting Van Buren and
Benton on Buchanan, than those "sterling
patriots President Pierce and General
Cass." Then yoa don't think that Van
Buren and Benton, the most able and dis
tinguished Northern supporters in the Bu
chanan ranks are "sterling patriots."
The reason for quoting Van Buren and
Benton is obvious to any one not frighten
ed out of his senses at the prospect of de
feat. Van Buren, Benton, Buchanan and
the democratic party are accomplices in a
plot against Southern rights and institu
tions. We are nsing the evidence of two
of the culprits, to convict the remainder.
And we are succeeding. No f-tlon in the

It would give me the greatest pleasure to be

Maj. Donelson's Letter of Accep
tance. Tclip Grove, July 11th, 1856.
Sir Your letter of the 12th inst , informing me
of my nomination by the American Party of Geor
gia as their candidate tor the Vice Presidency ot
the United States, has been received, and with it,
the declaration of principles adopted on the same
For this mark of respect and honor, I beg leave
to Dresent my grateful acknowledgements. In ac

obligation assumed, when I yielded to the wishes of
the National American Party which placed me pre-
viouslv in nomination for the same oroce. I he
principles avowed by the two conventions are sub
stantially the same. They are the principles taught
to us by the Fathers of the Revolution, and if faith
fully maintained, will make our Constitution and
Union invulnerable to the assaults of all foes, wheth
er coming to us from a foreign land or springing up
in our midst as factionists and traitors.
The people of Georgia have doubtless some re
collection of the support which I gave to the Com
promise measures of 1850, as a final settlement ol
the slavery question. A strong effort, both in the
North and the South, was made to compel Congress
to retrace its steps, and the cry was that acquies
cence ia those measures was an infamous surrender
of state-rights. In that crisis, I believed that the
old doctrines of Democracy mignt oe relied upon
to arrest the dangers resulting from the irritations
which marked the discussions of the day, but the
influence which controlled President Pierce satisfied
me that this party had lost its vitality as a national
one, and that no course was left for the disciples of
Washington, Jefferson and Jackson, but to seek in
a new organization the aid of the people In reviv
ing the maxims of the pure days of the Republic,
aod lopping off the excreseeaces which had been
fastened upon our system by factions and sectional
Before the election of President Pierce, promi
nent men in the South, aa well as the North, blamed
me for insisting that the Democratic party was the
safest organization for securing the reforms neces
sary to tranquilize the public mina, yet tnese same
men now traduce and calumniate me for not acting
with them when they are notoriously in alliance
with those who oppose these reforms. They desired
me as an old Jackson Democrat to quit the party
when there was a hope of its beirg brought back
to its original doctrines, but when the proof became
conclusive that the power of this party had passed
into the bands of the freesoiler and nullifier, they
assail me with the bitterest epithets for not adher
ing to it
When I endeavored to show that tne Democratic
party was more sound than the Whig on the sec
tional issues, there was reason to hope that the
disciples of the Nashville Southern Convention and
the Buffalo platform would not gain possession of
the Federal Government. Now, it will scarcely be
denied by any candid man that the politicians who
have given a dangerous direction to tne Heresies or
these two schools are not only acting with the Mod
ern Democracy, but are really shaping iU policy
and dispensing its patronage.
Then, too, it was a constant reproach t me, as
being unfaithful to the cause of State-rights and
the cause of the South, that I did not denounce in
terms if unmeasured abuse such men as Mr. Van
Buren and Mr. Benton. Now the fact stares us in
the face that this modern Democracy has made a
nomination for the Presidency which calls forth a
voice of applause aod approbation from Mr. Van
Buren and Mr. Benton as load as was ever heard
in favor of Jefferson and Jackson, aud this too when
it was but yesterday that we were threatened by
this Democracy with a dissolution of the Union on
account ot th dangers to which we were said to
be exposed by the doctrine of the Buffalo platform.
It belongs to the people to say what ought to be
the judgment on such inconsistency and whether
we should still place power in the hands of those
who have made the Democratic party a compound
of the ism which have arrayed one section of the
Union against another. As members of the Amer
ican party, and, as good citizens, we can only do
our duty, refusing to concur in measures that are
fatal to the publio peace and contributing by all the
legal means in our power to the restoration of those
old fashioned doctrines which made us to long a
happy and prosperous people. Under the influence
of such doctrines, we shall hear no more of squat
ter sovereignty or mob-tribunals, but may hope to
see Congress performing again its constitutional
duty as the guardian of the rights of the South as
well as the North in the settlement of our publio
lands, and iu the admission.of the inhabitants of the
Territories to the sovereign rights of States, wit
or without slavery, as they may determine for them
selves, trArvi forming a Stal constitution.
But it is not perhaps proper for me to enter into
a discussion of the causes which have constituted
us, without reference to our antecedent as Whigs
or Democrats, a new party. I refer to them only
in connection with the patriotic declaration of prin
ciples made by the Convention at Macon, in order
that yoa may see bow complete is my coocarence
with tbem, and bow great is my appreciation of the
honor yoa have conferred upon me by an associa
tive of my name with that of Mr. Fillmore in th
noble effort to check the excesses of party.spira,
and efftct a reformation as important a that of
1708 and 1800. I ooce did great injustice to this
eminent paOiot and statesman, by holding him re
sponsible for what I considered an attempt to merge
the Whig party of the North Into a sectional oppo
sition to the rights of the Sooth; bat when I saw
him rise superior to such local prejudices, and pre
fer the lotereals of the whole country to that of the
section In which be happened to be born, I made

We are solicited to repeat the request
for the pnblication of this speech. Those
Americans who heard it, have made those
who did not, curious to read it. Will the
democratic committee, or those who have
control of it give the public the speech?
Do yoa besi us? 2We want that speech.
There has been a time when the Union
and American professed io believe, and re
peated in" every possible shaped the charge
of bargain intrigue and corruption against
, Messrs. Clay and Adams. We wish to
know,' as that paper now supports the au-
. thor of that - charge, whether its present
conductors believe it to be "true?; Gen.
Jackson says in his letter to Maj. Lewis of
Feb." 28th, 1845, that he was "sure" that
Buchanan "about that i time C1825) did
believe there was a perfect understanding
between Adams and Clay about the Pres
idency and Secretary of State." Will the
Union and American say that it believes
there was an understanding between Clay
and Adams? We desire an early answer.
The Letter of Leslie Comb.
The Frankfort (Ky.) Commonwealth in
republishing the Letter of Gen. Leslie
Combs says -
Now this letter is most significant; not
merely on account of its statements, bat on
account of the peculiar position which the
writer has heretofore held in the present con
test. Gen. Combs, as everybody knows, is an
old line whig. When be left Kentucky a few
weeks ago be was (as we are informed) under
the impression that Mr. Buchanan's chance for
an election was better than Mr. Fillmore's; and
while he preferred Mr. Fillmore, he was con
sidering whether be ought not to go for Bu
chanan as the surest means of defeating Fre
. mont. With these views, and this preposses
sion upon his mind, be goes to NewYork; and
there he is soon convinced upon "very reliable
information,'1 that the contest in the great em
pire btate, which casts thirty-five electoral
votes, is not between Buchanan and Fremont,
but between Fdlmore and Fremont; that "Bu
chanan has no chance" in that State; and that
even the democrats are giving him np and di
viding themselves between the other candi
dates the hards, or national democrats, goiog
for Fillmore, and the softs, or freesoil demo
crats, for Fremont.
B& It should be borne in mind that in
1850 Mr. Buchanan was in favor of run
ning the Missouri restriction line to the
Pacific, thus dedicating to free soil all the
territory North of 36 deg. 30 min.
In that year Mr. Fillmore signed the
compromise bills which permit Utah, lying
above the line of 36 deg. 30 min., to come
into the union as a slave State, should she
choose to do so.

The Washington correspondent of the Philadel
phia Inquirer, an Old Line Whig paper, writes con
cerning the Presidential prospects as follows:
Permit me to say a few words on politics and
the Presidency. Buchanan's friends are getting
much discouraged at the advices from the South,
where he is evidently declining very generally and
very fast. What he loses, of course Fillmore
gains; not onlv because the latter is highly popular
in that section but also because all who leave Buch
anan, Whigs or Democrat3, have no one else to go
to but Fillmore for Fremont will probably not run
a ticket or nominate electois in any portion of the

improving, and if the old line Whigs will only

his favor. Such action will be promptly followed
by the Whigs in other States.

at least tuxlve States. With three tickets in the

manner carry Pennsylvania and also, could not

Of the Southern States, he will, even as matters
now stand, carry Delaware, Maryland, Tennessee,
Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, aod Louisiana, and
probably Virginia, certainly the latter, with a cor
dial support from the Wbigs. If Mr. Buchanan
continues to retrograde at the South, and loses bis
prestige there so that a general impression prevails
that he cannot succeed, Mr. Fillmore will sweep
every Southern State; and then with New York, or
with twenty-nine votes elsewhere in the free States,
he will be elected.
Tlie Canrass in Montgomery.
Clakksville, July 29, 1856.
Editors or thk Patbiot: The members of the
Fillmore and Donelson Club held their usual meet
ing at this place on last Thursday night, at the
Court House, and a most enthusiastic meeting it was.
The house was crowded to overflowing, and the
audience was addressed, for about two hours and
a half, by John F. Hocsi, Esq., in one of the hap
piest and most overwhelming strains of forensic
eloquence to which I ever had the pleasure of
listening. This effort alone, without the assistance
of the many other fine speeches that Mr. House
has made, would be sufficient to place himln a very
high position as a political speaker. He was re.
peatedly cheered throughout, and when he con
cluded, there burst from the assembled crowd one
loud and prolonged aeclammation of enthusiasm
that made the very welkin ring. The Montgomery
boys are made of the right sort of metal, and you
may rest assured that they are going to poll a
largely increased vols for Fillmore and Donelson.
If the Davidson boys don't stir themselves up we
will "lay It on" them so badly in the coming con

of the administration in these matters, the weakest

the old line Jackson democrats in their late
State Convention at Syracuse. They make
short and clean work of the business in band.
They stand upon the old fashioned principles
of Jefferson, Jackson, Thompkins and Silas
Wright they declare their-uncompromising
hostility to the extension of slavery they
protest against packed conventions they re
pudiate the Cincinnati candidate as the heir
apparent of the Pierce dynasty they declare
themselves for Fremont and Dayton, on the
ground that the election of Buchanan will
make Kansas a slave State, while the election
of Fremont will secure it to freedom and free
And who are these democrats tliat thus
boldly defy the Cincinnati politicians, and who
cast away with such contempt the pettifogging
letter of the sage of Lindenwald, and the Oily
Gammon speeches of Prince John ? Who are
they ? They are the cream of the old democrat
ic party of this commonwealth the very cream
of it. Some ot them were leaders in the
church when onr modern democratic chief
tains such as Pierce, Douglas and Toombs
were lawyer's apprentices, and some of them
were democrats when Mr. Buchanan was a
federalist. And they represent a body of men
that will astonish the Cincinnati compounders
in November. The vote in this State f.r
Martin Van Bnren in 1848, upon the general
issue of hostility to the extension of slavery,
was 120,000, and very likely upwards of fifty
thousand of these voters are now with Fre
mont. We should not be surprised it, on tbe day of
the election, the full measure ot one hundred
thousaDd of the Van Buren vote of '48 were
to be cast for Fremont. We think twenty
thousand a liberal margiu for the family influ
ence of Van Buren, under existing circumstan
ces. The distinguished head of the family
has overshot the mark, and like the Queen of
Louis Phillippe with the Count of Paris, he
comes in too late, lie hss by this time dis
covered his mistake. Be has imagined here
tofore that he appropriated those one hundred
and twenty thousand men for his own selfish
purposes in 1848, when in fact they were only
using him. They were not aver.ging Martin
Van Buren they were defending a principle
in that Buffalo movement.
Thus we have another striking illustration
of the great fact that the prestige of the dem
ocratic party is gone that the name has lost
its aharm that the parly is broken vpthxt
old democrats by thousands are becoming inde
pendent even of democratic conventions, and that
all around us there has been, is now, and will
be a popular revolution atjwork, demolishing all
the o'd claptrap platforms, humbugs and
dodges of scheming politicians, until a general
reform is effected, and an out-and-out rtcoou
struction of parties, principles, measures and
men in government affairs. The Cincinnati
contrivance will do no good to Mr. Buchanan
in the Empire State. New York has gone by
