-The Cot.za. of .oters cornmented !-A
few of the would-be leading Democrats of
Red Stick have already commenced the
game of their party-the purchase of floating
votes, which are of no possible value, only as
merchantable property to their owners. It
appears, however, from reports in the Comet
and Gazette, that the first attempt proved al
most an entire failure, and that the gentlemen
engaged in it, altough they imagined that
they had made their arrangements with such
secrecy, as to defy the vigilance of our Ameri.
can friends who also dwell in Red Stick, had
the mortification of seeing their grand plans
fall through to a considerable extent, and of
becoming unpleasantly conscious that them
selves, sad all the proceedings of their (;uv
Fawkes meeting in the dead hour of night
were all well known! Some seven or eight
patriotic and unflinching Democratic free
men were furnished with considerable addi
tions to their wardrobe; with slathers of
whisky, and at about midnight, were taken
out of town in a carriage driven by one of
the gentlemen politicians, a few miles, where
it was proposed to form a camp en perma
nance until the troop could be drawn out for
voting purposes on the 4th. But the best
arranged schemes sometimes fall, and in this
case, the arguments were not sufficier.tly
weighty..to fully secure the allegiance of all
the freemen who had enlisted in the cause of
the great-the unpolluted-the noble Democ
racy. Two of them returned to town next
morning, boasting of their speculation, and
stated that the balance of the party would
soon follow them. notwithstanding the large
promises of whisky and other comtorts.
How far Democracy has succeded in this in
famous game, since the first trial, we are not
fully aware, but we learn that they are de
termined to persevere in it.
0r We announced last week, that Col.
Paaa. Poso would without fail, address the
citizens of Bruly Landing upon the political
topics of the day. True to the day appoint
ed,Mr. PONn was present, but having received
intelligence of the illness of some member of
his family,he was unable to remain. The
Col. seemed as much disappointed as was
the large audience that hid assembled to
hear him. He, however, will, before the
canvass closes, make one more attempt to
speak at Bruly which he says shall be effec
tual. Due notice will be given, and as sever
al other well-known orators have expressed
a desire to speak at the same time, we may
anticipate a rich treat.
During the evening of Saturday last, the
crowd seeming determined to have a speech
from some one. a unanimous call was made
upon our enthusiastic young friend, C. W.
Pors, Esq., of Plaquemine, who promptly
responded to the call, and delivered one of
the prettiest little speeches we have heard
during the campaign. The cheers of the
audience testified their apl.robation of
'WIII·s's " effort.
A Cna.an.--We have receivej the first

against the Government.
We have hitherto regarded the ravings of
Northern Abolition and Southern fire-eating
disunionists with disgust andconterpt, rath
er than apprehension for the safety of the
Union. But we can no longer, if we woniuld,
conceal the fact, that the foul spirit of dis
loyalty and fanaticism which but yesterday,
I skulkingly avoided the public gate, to-day,
prloudly and defiantly slalks abroad in the
land. Not alone in the haunts of disappoint
ed ambition and festering political corruption
does this hideous monster. Disunion, now
find protection and encouragement, but in
high places of power and ti st. Under the
sanctio:n of authority, it proclaims its treason
able designs. and gloats over the pictures of
anarchy and bioodshed that are to be real
ized in their ccisumation. This is no fancy
sketch, but a sad and gloomy reality. In
proof of what we say, it is no: necessary for
rs to refer to that large and in lsint o~habili
tv, respectable portion of the Press, both
North and South, whose columnns teem with
disunion sentiments; lor we have more con
clusive p-oof'in an event of late occurrence. K
We refer to the call fir a Convention of the
Govern.rs of the various Southern States for
the purpose of dfeterminiil:g what shall he
done byv the South in the event of the elect- i
ion of Fitzxosl to the Presidenc'y.
This Southern Convention origiratel with I
Go. W\ise, of Virgina. who contendtet that
the Union will and ouidl to be dissolved it
case of the election ot Feeo.nr. How fi r
this call has been responlted to, we are oun
able to say; but as nearly all the governors
of the Southern States belong to the same po- 1
litical household with r Wise, it is a fair
presumption, that they will generally f !!hw !1
in the wake of their more distinguished and I
courageous leader. Properly interpreted,
this propositioi, of Gov. WisE, i., moral trea

mere fact that the contingency may never
happen which is to be the a gnal to- the out

away the governing power from the maijority

MoxrT to the Presidential chair, as much as 1

fact of his election would afford no just a

BUCiA.YvA STOCx In New ORLItans.-An
expiring kick was made in New Orleans by
the adherents of the Squatter King, on Mon
day night last, butit is described as a total
failure. The Bulletin in describing the affair
tsays: The weather was unpropitious, the
streets damp and muddy, and the sidewalks,
like Democratic plaiforms, slippery, The
meeting was organized by the appointment
of P. E. Bonford, Esq.. President, with the
usual complement of other officers Mr. Bon
t ford, on taking the chair, made a short, ap
propriate address, in which he'observed, we
were glad to notice, the courtesies of langu
age becoming gentlemen who differ in politi
cal opinions and preferences. It wonid be
well if all Democratic speakers and Demo
I cratic newsrpapers too were to imitate his ex
ample. We consider Mr. Bonford one of
I our best speakers. He was followed by
f some gentleman whose name we did not
catch. He appeared to be laboring under a
severe cold, and though, we were not far off.
his remarks were nearly inaudible to us.
When we left, at 8 o'clock, the crowd had
dwindled down to very small proportions,
extending no farther than to the foiuth light
Spost. The sidewalks on either side of the
I street were occupied principally by Fillmore
r men, and once or twice gave a round of
cheers for the model President. There were
some boys in the streets occasionally ruh
I ning hither and thither cutting u) all sorts
I of antics.-They should have received a
good spanking and been sent to bed, the
young scamps. As we bhfore intimaten, the
f meeting must certainly be considered a fail.
I ure. There is no enthusiasm for Buchanan
in New Orleans. Calling for it, is like call
f ing "spirits from the vastly deep," it will
not come.

Robertson, which continued for eigkh hour s

Fusion.-We have before us a copy of an ad
d-ess recently issued by two hundred and
fifty Democrats ot Detroit. to their Demo
cratic brethren of other parts of Michigan.
The address is publishes in the Detroit Ad
vertiier. of Saturday week, cndo commences
as tI!lows :
' In view of the almost irreparable injuries
that have been indicted upon our Democratic
institutions, the long estitbshbed principlesl-i
the Democratic party, und thbe peace and
prosperity of our beloverd country, by the ad
ninistration of Franklin Pierce, and the
still greater injury threatened by the election
of James Buchanan, who has given his un
quali ied and cordial approval to all its wick
ed measures, and staiids solemnly pledged, as
well by his own declaration as by the Cin
cinnati platform.
"'We. the undersigned. -lto have uniformly
actea with the Democratic party, and who rated
for Franklin Pierce in 1t5i2. feel it to be our de -
ty as Democrats. as friends of our country, and
uas good atizens. pubid!y to declare our determli
natton to oppose. in every hororable way, the
election of James Buahanan. and to ,gwe our in
fuen.u and our votes to John C. Fremont, and
to se forth the reasons which have impelled us to
this course.'
The address then proceeds -to enumerate
all the evil acts which the friends of Mi.
Fillmore are now charging upon the Demog
racry; affirms all, and many more of them
to be true, and argues at length that the true
Democratic principles of their (the signers)
faith are to be found alone under the banner
of the Republicans. "I ais is the unkindest
cut of all !" In the State of Gen. Case, and
in the face of the cry of Fi'lmore fusions,
two hnndred and fifty Democrats decamp
to the lines of the Republicans with a single
impulse. The sign is omnious in a State
claimed as certain for Mr.-Buchanan. There
is no mistake about it. Their names are to
the record.-Gazette.

No FisioN.-Tlhe New York Comwrcial
iAdvert,ser. thus disposes of the very small
1 capital which the Buchanan papers South
have been doing business upon lately, in re
gard to he cry of "fusion"' ir Pennsylvania:
'The Republicans have put forward noelec
toral ticket in Petnnsylvania, but their plan
and hope is. that if the Democracy ts defeat
el to-day, the Fillmore party will admit
them to a share in their electoral ticket, but
vhirh under norontingen-y, anu under no cnr
rumustances, v'ill be arcorded. Every man on
that ticket is pledged in writing to vote for
Fillmore. and f.r ,-o one else. and all propo
sition from the Republican party for such a
union have been peremptorily and promptly
refused, and the Fillmore and Donelson Com
mittee have just put forth an address, entirely
repudiating any idea of a fusion of the kind.
The Fremont party will therefore either
have to put out a separate ticket, or to join
and support the Fillmore ticket, just as it is,
with every elector on it a firm and reliable
Fillmore man.
Inasmuch as it has been about a draw
game in Pennsylvania. it will thus be seen
that Fillmore divides Pennsylvania just about
equally with Buchanan in the latter's own
State ! And yet the Buchanan papers and
speakers affect to ignore Mr. Fillmore's can
didacy! The game won't win, however
The people see through it.

TI LATE Elr.vcTo.NS.-NLate reports from
Pennsylvania, are materially changing the
aspect of political affaiis in that State. The
telegraphic despatches received on Thursday
night. reduce the Democratic majority to lea.
than 2000, and the counties yet to be heard
from officially, are known to have given eon
siderable majorities o,r the Union ticket. Mr.
Buchanan, has been defeated in his own coun
ty, the Democrats louing nearly 100 on their
vote of last year. The most gigantic frauds
were perpetrated in Philadrelphia, which,
otherwise, would have given a I'irion muaj,,ru
ty. Some of the preeints have been .cn
tested. On the w hole, the result in r'err,syl
vamra, is clearly against Mr. Buchanan. aitv'
his prospecrt of success are by no means as
bright now as they were before the elections
of the 11th.
In Ohio, the Black Republicans have a ma
lority of over 20,004.
In Indiaua, the I)emorrats have e!erted
their Governor, and a majority of the lower
Fiouse of the Legislature. T'le cRepu5licaisa
have a majority in the Senate.
Florida is still in doubt. TIe Americans
