of human bondage. They may change
their residence from a slave to a free
State, but remain foreigners still. To
iuoh, the arguments of the Journal are
Appropriately addressed.
To our friends throughout the State,
and to our friends beyond our State lim
its, we desire to say that the success of
the Republican party in October next is
as sure as that tliere will be an election
in that month. All their turnings and
twisting*, their appeals and pledges, and
falsehoods will avail the Democracy noth
ing. The Republican party stands as a
unit. They abhor the doe trine of the
Dred Scott decision, which is alone the
real Democratic platform of the day.—
They will never consent that slavery shall
go into the Territories of the United
States and bo nurtured there under the
Federal flag, and they will never elevate
to office any man who favors such a
proposition.
Kim ip Stranger, Till the Gal* tfft*
dress."
There is a spot in the south-western
part of this State, know as the Fiery
Fork of Honey Run."—a delicious locali
ty, no doubt, as the run of honey is,
of course, accompanied by a correspond
ing flow of milk," and a mixture of
milk and honey, or at any rate, honey and
"peach" is the evidence of subluuary
contentment, every place where they have
preaching!
Honey Run is further christianized
by the presence of an extremely hospita
ble family, whose mansion, comprising
one apartment—neither more nor less—is
renowned for being never shut against the
traveler, and so our friend found it dur­
ing the chill morning air at the expense
of a rheumatism on his shoulder—its
numerous unaffected cracks and spaces
clearly showing that dropping the latch
was a useless formality. The venerable
host and hostess, iu their one apartment,
usually enjoy the society of two sons, four
daughters, sundry dogs and niggers,"
and as many lodgers as may deem it pru
dent to risk the equivocal allotment of
sleeping partners. On the night in ques
tion, our friend, after a hearty supper of
ham and eggs, and a canvass of the Fiery
Forkers—the old lady having pointed out
his bed—felt very weary, and only look
ed for an opportunity to "turn in,"
though the musquitoes were trumpeting
all sorts of wrath, and nonet appeared
to bar them. The dojre flung themselves
o O
along the floor, or again rose, restlessly,
and sought the door step, the niggers
stuck their feet into the yet warm ashes
the old man stripped, unscrupulously,
and sought his share of the old collapsed
looking pillow, and the sons cavalierly
followed his example, leaving the
old womau, "gals," and "stranger,"
to settle any question of tielicacy that
might arise.
The candidate yawned, looked at his
bed, went to the door, looked at the
daughters finally, in downright reckless­
ness, seated himself upon the downey,"
and pulled off his coat, and then he yawn
ed, and then he whistled, and then he call-
it would never do to sleep in his muddy
trowsers and then he undid his vest, and
then he whistled again, and then sudden
ly an idea of her lodger's possible embar-
rasment seemed to flash upon the old wo
man, and she cried:
Gals, jest turn your backs round tilt
the stranger gets into bed."

desired, somehow or other the old coun
terpane was equally kind in hiding his
blushes, and favoring his sly glances.—

were neither bustles to unhitch nor corsets

I'ro^pectiiN of I lie Repiiblie* The InilciK'iidrill,
The purjiose of Mr. Buchanan's administra
tion clearly is to keep up that agitation of the
Slavery truest ion, which was dchlicrately enter
ed upon as a matter of |mlitical calculation in
1H54, as the basis of a new party then formed
to control the destinies of the country that agi
tation to which Mr. Buchanan owes his own
election, and to which those who surround him
now l.H.k confidently for the perpetuation of
tjieir own aower.
Then- are large Ixtdies of our countrymen, in
all parts of the tTnion, who deplore this organi
zation of a sectional party at the South, bottom
ed upon the revolutionary proceedings of IHfif,
and still maintained by violent acts, apjK'aling
to sectional jwissions who perceive that it os
tracises the moderate and conservative jortion
of the citizens of the slave holding Stub's from
participation and influence in public affairs
and who see in this geographical arrangement
of parties the greatest dangers of all kinds, in
cluding dangers to the peculiar institution, the
sensitiveness of which is so recklessly appealed
to by political gamblers.

duets are just as essential to the farmer's pros*
pcrity as large crops and fat cattk'. It lalxgas

products, and to prevent tlie middle man fixMh*'
taking too much toll for his services.
III. It labors to enlarge his stock of ideas,
to improve his understanding, and while avoid

economy.

information, tlie columns of the Prairie Fnmj£p
give the news ot the ilay, botli hoiuciiud foix'ign.
