The Old Line Whigs.
Since the unanimous and enthusiastic en
dorsement of Ma. FILLtOtRE by the old line
Whig Conventiot: lately held at Baltimore, we
find that the Whigs inall directions are com
ing up manfully tothe support of the Ameri
candidate. The assertion of our democratic
friends,.that the Convention was held too
late to affect the numerical strength of either
of the then organized parties, was altogether
gratuitous and without a syllable of truth.-
The large majorityof the old line Whigs un
til that Convention, maintained aastrict neu
trality and afterwards cheerfully endorsed
the action of the Convention and are now
battling for the glorious cause of the Consti
tution and the Union. Of those who had
previously given in their adhesion to the
-democratic party, many of them have come
back to the support of their old and tried
leader. SenatorPr.ARCE,of Maryland, whose
accession to the denocratic party, not long
ago, created such a furor among our almost
despairing opponents, has determined, on
being convinced that Ma. FrLLMORK is the
only man who can defeat FREEMONT, to give
him his undivided support. The old Nation
al Idtcltigescer, after affording up to a short
period since, aid and comfort to the enemy,
Shas flung to the breeze the banner of FILL
nORE and DONELSon and is doing noble work
in the cause. Thus it is, all over the Union.
The conservative' nd patriotic of all parties
are rushing to the support of the American
standald. They know that it must be plant.
ed on the Capitol in the great hattle about to
ensue, or all will be lost. Unles checked
now, they feel the spirit of sectionalism will
become unconquerable and to this belief, they
are willing to surrenuer all their old prejudi
ces and predilections.. This result is no more
than what we expected. Those who suppo
sed the followers of CLAY and WEBSTER,
could be induced to support their hereditary
enemy, JAMES BUC1AaAN, were reckoning
without their host. There never was any
foundation for such a belief, though strongly
.asserted, to affect the action of that class of ;
our people, who make availability a leading I
qualification in the candidate whom they
would support. In conclusion. three cheers
..or the Old Line Whigs of the Union!
The present Aspect of the Canvass.
The time for the discussion of tho great
issues involved in the present contest, is now
!" nearly at a close. But little over two weeks,
as. and the question of the Presidency, with all
its incidents, will be settled; it therefore be
be comes every individualentitled to a vote to
determine whom he ought to support, and go
to work earnestly in behalf of whatever can
be cldate his judgment and his convictions of
t- duty may lead him to prefer.
Of the respeclive merits of the various
,. candidates, we have already said, perhaps
all that is necessary. We have shown by a
ad comparison of their antecedents, that Mlr.
FILLMOUE is, by far, the safer man for the
South and the Union.,
r- We propose now, briefly to refer to the
question of availibility, whiclbwas raised at
the commencement of the canvass, and has
been agitated continually since, by our oppo.
nents. Which of the two candidates, Mr.
FJl.L:Mon or J AMEs BUCHANAN, stands the
best chance to defeat Fa.u.o..r and Black
Republicanism ? We answer unhesitatingly,
that man who can obtain the largest electo
ral vote in the North. Let it be understood
we are now discussing ,this question from a
Southern point of vitw. As against the
North the South is powerless. The entire
electoral vote of the South given to one can
didate would fall shortof electing him; hence
the question of availibility, so far as we are
concerned, must find its solution, in a com- I
parrison of the strength of the two candidates,
least exceptionable to the South in the
North.
The'Democracy have all along contended
that Mr. BUL'CAN.AN' chances in the North
were fir superior to Mr. FILLInorE's, Are
they correct in the position they have as
sumed, is the question we would submit to
every candid aln impartial mind. And to
i'etermine this question, all that is necessary j
is to refer to facts.
The late elections in the Northern States. i
we think fully determine the point in issue.
We were told, on the eve of the election in I
Maine, thut the commencement of the great h
t Demt cratic sictory, which would result in d
the elevation of JAMES BUCHA.AN to the t
Presidential chair, was to take place in that
State. Ten thousand Democratic majority o
was regarded a very low estimate. The elec
tion came off, and the majority was not far
from twenty thousand against the Democracy.
Here was a gzeat blunder, and the shrewdest
of our opponents were for a time, at a loss n
how to explain the result, so as not to ma- a
terially injure their course-they finally how- ii
ever attempted to evade the difficulty, by as- n
serting that they could do without Maine"
They next pitched upon Connecticut as the
great battle-field upon which IMr- BurH.ANs''s
claims to Northern support would be fully and s
triumphantly maintained. Connecticut was
sure for the Democracy by an overwhelming
majority, Indeed if they could not carry this
State they were willing to confess that they
stood no possible chance of obtaining the
electoral vote of a single Northern State
Well. the telegraph has just announced that
the Democracy have been ignominiously de- g
feated in Connecticut, the Gibralter ot their al
wanning power. Where else can they look f
for succor? To Pennsylvania? It is their
last and only hope and with it added to the
entire Southern vote they cannot.elect their
candidate. But Pennsylvania and we say it
in all candor and truthfulness, we do not be- ir
lieve will give her electoral vote for her own im
son even. Nor isthis belief without` strong t
evidence to sustain it. The American party S
in that State is stronger than ever-where
then comes the supporters of FaR:ooNT ?
most assuredly from the Democratic ranks
Why, in Pittsburg, a few days ago. at a FRE
MOST Barbecue, there were alleged to have
been 100.000 persons present, and we notice
a significant fact connected with this affair
that two-thirds of the speakers were German
Orators. That FaEuoNT will draw off from
the Democratic party proper, all those tinc
tured with Abolitionism, together with the
entire German vote, there cannot b- a doubt.
In such an event no one can fail to see that
the Democracy will be in a hopeless minority.
Thus Pennsylvania is bound to go for FILL-'
.MORE or FREMOONT.
Now for Mr. FILT.XOEESS chances. It is
true there have been held no elections since
his nomination, in States claimed for him;
but we have every assurance that he iscertain
to get New York, New Jersey, aad Massa
chusetts, a3d probably several other Northern
States. The fact of his carrying New York,
even Democrats are forced to concede, so that
according to their own admissions taken in
connection with the evidence of Mr. Biucn
ANAN's weakness above, Mr. FILLAMORE is by
far the most available man, at the preseqt
moment. Such being the case, those of oir
DemocratiE friends, who have harped so long
and so loud about availability, if they be sin
cere, are bound to support Mr. FILLMoaBR up
on the principle that he alone can defeat
FaExoNT and Black Republicanism.
Ma. BUCHANAN AND SLAVERY.-The Ral
eigh Register, (N. C.,) is showing up the incon
sistencies of Mr. Buchanan on the subject of
slavery, as follows:-In 1816 he delivered a
speech in Congress, declaring that " slavery
was a curse;" in 1819, that Congress could
exclude slavery in the Territories; in 1838,
another in favor of the reception of petitions
to abolish slavery in the district and of main
taiping the Missouri Compromise; in 1844,
upon the Texas question, expressing his re
pugnance by an act of his to extend the lim
its of the Union over new slaveholding terri.
.tory; ' and in 1848, another, that Congress
had the power to legislate upon slavery in
the Territories, and should- extend the Mis
souri Compromise like to the Pacific. In
1856, however, he took the back track, and
swallowed his own words.
Trlbute to tle lfrluory of the lute J. M.
Branot, Esq.
eat
Ow At a session of the Sixth Judicial District
ks, Court, began and holden inl the parish of West
a1 Baton Rouge on Nonday,the (th day of Oc
be- tober, 1836, H. M. FavRor, Esq.. announced
to the death of JAMe.s M. BRlrNOT, in the follow
go ing words, viz:
n- Since the last session of this Court, a sad
of and..upolleen event has happened. Among
the melnbers that usually occupy a place at
)Us this Bar, there is one missing-a chair that
Ps is vacant. Death with its impartial hand,
ya has struck a fatal blow among the legal fra
r. ternity, by committing to his last abode,
he JAMEs M. BaRUOT.
I will nrot attempt to eulogise the many
he qualities which marked the career of the la
at mented dead. All who knew him, must
as have openly it not tacitly, rendered homage
O- to his moral, intellectual and social worth.
r. As a lawyer, he stood high in his profession,
he and enjoyed the esteem and respect of his
k colleagues, as well as the confidence of his
3, clients. As a man, there is not a minute of
0 his life that is sullied by a dishonest act. So
ad pure and kind was his disposition, that lihe
a could riot have sinned in thought. The friend
he of humanity, he pitied rather than blamed its
e imperfections, and was always more ready
- to forgive than condemn. As a husband, he
e was endowed with all the domestic virtues;
re easy aind cheerful in his manner, the coirjuigal
* home could not but feel the effects of his
Is hapoy disposition. As a father. he had every r
ereason to be proud of the example he had set
to his family; they clustered around him
id with love and confidence, and were never re
h pulsed with that unnatural frown by which
re mistaken parents estrange their children in
* stead of conciliating them. t
Bo But the scene of life is closed, the sombre
t veil of death is drawn, there is nothing left of
y JA.IES a . BU..Nor. except the recollection of I
his virtues. At this Bar, in society. among
' his family, his loss has left a void which will t
e. long be felt. Providence, in severing the
in bonds which connected him with this worhlt t
at had no doubt an object iin view--lts will be
n done. however hard the blow :hat is intlic- 1
e ted.
it To those of the legal profession who are up
Y on the thresh Id of their career, I vwrould
point as an example worthy of their i mrmii
tation, the course pursued by J. 3t. Br..N.or.
A stranger in this criunmunity, with no. pecu
niary means, and but little patror: age, he !
is made his drbut in life about twenty-six years
ago. Honest. conisciencious, perser euing and
industrious, he soon gained the con'.ideince and i
respect of the world, and his eTo ts s were re- I
warded with success. He leaves. a family to
mournhis loss; ason whose education and
o iiurbanity renders him justly worthy of his
sire, and daughters whose polis hed and refiu
ed manners, whose hearts fl',l of love and i
sympathy, will sooth the sor ow and distress
s of a bereaved mother.
To the widow and the or:,hans, we can ::
give no consolation, save our sincere symnpa
thv and our testimonial of relect tPthe t
memory of him that is no more. Tinie alone
can dry the tears and dispel the aniuuish and
affliction of those who survive the death of a
faithful husband and a kind parent.
r : will now move. that as a testimonial of
respect to the deceased, the Court do now
adjourn.
After the adjournment of the Court,a meet- o
ing of the members of the Bar was organ- I
ized by calling Judge "l'uo:..s G. Moar;.is to
the chair, and appointing W. B. Clu.l.iuEn.I.r j
Secretary.
On motion, the following resolutions were
unanimously adopted, viz:
Whereas, The death of JAMEs M. BR,;NOT,
occasions a vacancy which will long be felt
by the members of this Bar,
Renohlred, That fromr the moral, social and
intellectual worth of the deceased, we had
for him during life, the highest esteem and re
gard, and that it is but rendering a just tri
bute to his memory to proclaim on this oc
casion, our sincere regret that he has been
called away from our midst by an unlbforseen
and untimely end.
Resolved, That we deeply and sincerely
sympathise with the t'idow and orphans of
tne deceased in their affliction, and trust that
they may ultimately receive that consolation
which time alone and a kind Providence can
bestow.
Resolved, That these resolutions and the
address delivered by H. M FAVROr, he spread
upon the minutes of this Court, and a copy
of both forwarded to the family of the de
ceased.
Resolved, That as a testimonial of esteem
for the memory of the deceased, the mem
bers of this Bar wear a badge of mourning
for the period of thirty days.
Resolved, That a committee of three be
appointed, consisting of Judge W. B. ROBERT
soN, DaviD N. IanRRow, and H. M. Fsvaor,
to present the family of the deceased with a
copy of the address and resolutions.
Resolved, That the paper of this parish and
those of the city of Baton Rouge are reques
ted to publish the above address and reso
lutions.
On motion the meeting then adjourned

... .' r oi;i;n TO I , )NE-" i .i-'ticle in
the Richmonid Inquirer (says a ciorrespondent
of the New Orleans Delta,at Rlichmond) has
t some suggestions that point directly to the
t duty of Southerners at the present time. It
is speaking of the presutmption that Mary
land should run a Freemost ticket, and it
makes a request that should be acted on all
through the South. It says:
Baltimore must be counted as not for us
hlut ac-ainst us. We must deal with Iar as
with the other more northern cities, all see
tional enemnies who are assailinit our dormes
tic peace and property and our peipetuity as
Ia fre and equal confederacy ot states. Ila!
timore, itf she goes along with the north,must
Stake the consequences and not be beretitted
by the patronage of the south. We must not
makef ish of one and flesh of another'.
V Our enemies in ihe slave states are the imost
- dangerols. It is a question of ital interest
-woo is with us .
1st. We beg our friends in Baltimore to
plll.ish from time to time the names of those
rnerclhants, traders and busliness rneir of all
vocationls who are pro-slavery.
I d. W\e a-k our southern dealers of all
Sclasss to note vi ho are Irirndls and who are
s foes in Baltimore as well as in other cities :
Sand riot to spenld a dollar of patronage upuo
those winVo are rnot kno\ li to be for us.
:3d. We ask our towns. villages and country
places in the south to organizc meetings. pub
licly to pleIdge their iptronage to sulch only
in all the cities, anitimore included. as ire
known Iriends of onsuntl uitiolnal rotection to
propelt)y inI slates of state equality in the
territories ; of the union or the states; and
who are not abolitionists iaid I.eesolers.
-Ith. l e ask the whu!e southern press,
friendly to our views, to call attention to this
nmatter, aild to rouse their readers the rece.
sity of this course of sell'-rotectio .
t th. We ask our friends in Baltimore and
iall the no-rt!e-ru riliesto organlui anld pro
cure and pulbish reliable inf ernation on whiich
our traders and btveus may act.
The south is aliilia:iig on this and other
points of acti in. and if we have not a majori
ty of friends in the north. the niiority who
are our friends shall be strengthend by our
patronage for the protection they are willing
f to give to our rights of propertyt and to our
political cquality ill tie Luiioni .
Just exactly what we think about it! If
the South will oily be true to ';erself in all
questions that agitate sectional differencs, we
think we can, without a doubt, brinig our
Northern friei.ds to their senses. Those pbo
I litioniats ranit and r/.le about slavery and its
horror,1 but they are by nio means opposed
to tratficking *i iti Southern merchant- aid
I thus indirectl y reap the benefits of slave la
- bor. But withdraw your trade from the.:n
. and you touch their pockets. and when you
t 'ouch th.eir pockets. yii, touchl iieir lives.
Ii our soittlein ii ierchaiits and planters i ii
Sonly rigidly adhere to this rule il making; their
purchases only of those who are favorable to
I the south and her institutionis, it would tend
more to put down this abolition feeling than
any thing else that could be done. At alli
events it is well worth a trial.
Tis C.Iscr:s ro, Ne:w YorK.--The welt
I informed New York correspolldelnt of the
Newv :)rleans Bulletin, "- Observer,' says in
speaking of 31r. Fnil.i.ior.ro s chanifes in that
'State and Pennsr Ivanlia:
But let me give you somte details as regards
the two grea. Sta.tes of New York anld P'enn
svlvania.
In New York the American party is prob
ah!y ,etter and more completely organizedl
than any party ever was. in any State-their I
lodges have gone over their li its. purged I
thenm, and een re-purged themn of a!l dleser- t
ters and doubtful meni. ald they retiirn in the
aggre.ate 1sl.0U0 voters, all of which they
say are goo ll nI'iand lI rue, atrd canl .,e relied
or,and rio mistake. Besides these, there is o
the order of United Arielicarns, searate and b
distinct from the Know Nothi;;us proper. s
wbich will number :;0)000 votes aund a forei-n i.
Protestant league whiuch has .i0nit members I
-afl of the preceding go for Fillmore, and as t
[ their delegates at the Convetl;ion said, it will 1
be hard if oni the to;, of these they cannot v
mester 100.000 lhkewise in the State; but tl
ay onily 511.00.0, anil there are then still 260 li
`to 170,000 votes for Fillmore, out of 6000000 b
which will proba'ly be polled, and certainly
with three tickets in the field the above mas
ter will elect. It is said 2"20.000 Kill be a 1I
pluralit. b
The letters from this State are unusually
encouraging, and speak in the most encour
aging teims. I have one now before me, re
ceived to-day, which says. "the enthusiasm
which has sprung up for Filimore is startling,
especially since the Convention at Baltimore.
In my little town he will receive nineteen
twentieths of the votes. We have polled it
and know the fact."
I was in New York six weeks since, when
the Black Republicans laughed at the idea of
anything less than y7,000. One ol their lead
ers who claimed that majority, and offered
me a bet of $50u on 506006 majoritv; at my
recent visit last" week he baui reduced his
vauntto 20 to 25,000 in the State. They
are awfully scared just now. for they con
sidered the State as perfectly safe by an -im
mense majority. One thing is certain, Fill.
more is now the onward candidate and Fre
mont is retroglading.
In Pernsylvania, the Americans say they
have 140,000 recorded votels in a poll of
probably 420 to 440,000 votes. The Old
Line Whigs are still pcwerful in that State,
and will throw a heavy vote. The Ameri
can leaders are confident of success, and say
she is as sure as New York, but I don't by
any means feel so confident as I do of New
York. Commodore Stockton is at the herd
of the Fillmore electoral ticket in New
Jersey, where the race will be between Fill
more and Buchanan, as Fremont will be no
where in that State.
Irr0But a few more weeks and the day of
battle will be upon us. Americans, are you
prepared to meet the foe and scatter his
squadrons in the fight? Are you willing to
submit with disgrace and allow yourselves to
be wheedled out of your vote by few whip.
per-snapping locofoco politicians? Are you I
willing to trust the dearest interests of your f
country in the hands of a party whose every
endeavor has been, and always will be, to I
involve the country in civil war and section- u
al strife? Or will you rise on the 4th of s
November in one tremendons upheaving, and
throw headlong from your shoulders, this
" old wan of the sea" who now rides tri- f,
umphantly upon your backs into every place i
of honor or profit in the gift of the people?- -
We shall see !
07" We see that our frie'ids over the river
have awarded the contract for building the
new Court House for that parish, to Mr. R. II.
Burk for the sum of 21,000. We suppose
that now the contract has been awarled, the
contractor will have nothing to do but com
plete the building. Our pliice jury, after a
rgreat deal of consideration. concluded to pur
chase the residence of Doct. Enders instead
of building a new house, and now after pn;
chasing it, they are just as lonI in coming to
a conclusiont about repairing as they were in
purchasing. We thought this was a fast age,
but some of our police juryrnen are about the
slowe t coachesrwe know of, a;l amongst
them, those who were most pro.minent in
advocating this purchase. We have not the
slighest dolubt our friends over the river will
hane their building up before oums is repaired.
It is, however, a consolation to know that at
is confidently expected, that at some remrnte
period of time--canet exactly say ,rrhc-,-we
will have a quorum of our police jury, and
then they will take into se ious consideratioi
the propriety of going on with the repairs
aforesaid. Winter is coming on with its usu
al accompaniment of bad weather, and it is
absolutely necessary that the repairs should
be gone on with and no longer delayed. Stir
up, gentlemen!

r This is certainly not very complimentary
language to be used by one Democrat to his
brother Democrats of the South, who are
clamorous in their declarations that Kansas
will be a Slave State. Judge McFarland is,
however, a true disciple of Buchanan and
Breckin.ridge. Buck has throughout his whole
life. opposed the extension of slavery on all
occasions whenever and wherever the ques
tion was presented; ane-Breckinridge is said
to have declared in a late speech in fndiana,
that -" the Democracy did nat desire the extension
of slavery." Yet in the face of all such de
I cla'ations from their leaders, the people of the
South are constantly told that the Democrat
ic party is the only national party.-N. O.

the following hand-bill for a Democratic
meeting in Pennsylvania: i
The Unios mucst ad shall be preserved--Jacrksou
A DEMOCRATIC MASS MEETING
WILL BE HELD AT
SMETHPORT. PENNSYLVANIA,
On Thursday, Sept. 18, .afternoon 4" Evening. -
The following persons are to address the.
people:
Gov. Win. Bigler, Penn.; Gen. Winm. F. Packer, Penn.
W. V. McKean, Esq. i Col. S. G.Hathawav, N. Y.
Erastus C. Grover N. Y.; Cpl. C. L. Ward, Penn.;
Hon. M. B. Champlin, N. Y.
Let this be a grand rally of the "North a
Tier " in favor of BUCHANAN BRECKIN- 'Z
RIDGE and
FREE K. NS dS?
See there, Democrats of Pirginia and the
South, what the platform of your party is at
the North-in Buchanan's own State! "Bu
chaqan, Breckenridge and Free Kansas!"
We ask, is "Free Kansas" in reality a part
of the Democratic creed? If so, why all the
fuss we hear about making Kansas a Slave
State? "Buchanan, Preckinridge and Free
Kansas!" Does not this prove the entire
unsoundness of BuchcnanDemocracy in Penn'
sylvania on the subject of slavery ? What
shameless hypocracy on the part of the bogus
Democracy.
The veritable hand-bill which was sent us
from Pennsylvania, and which we have cop
ied above, may be seen at the WVhig office by
any Whig or Democrat who prefers not to
take our word in regard to it·.-- lVashingtou
