But, at the same time, fellow Democrats, it gives us great gratification to reflect that our skirls are clear of these mur derous riots.

We know both statements to be lake; and as there is a lie out between you, just saddle it on which you please, the John horses or the Jack. How Jack writhes because the De mocracy are aroused and determined to preserve the ballot-box lor White men's suffrage instead ol Negroes. Whv don't Jack come up to the mark and say how long he wants a foreign nigger here before he is to have, the right to vote? Fix up your platlorm, and let us know how long a buck nig ier must have resided in the State. county, and township, before he can vote, but hear the thing bray: "Ihe Democracy of Vintou county, after a great deal of blot iati ig end gas, induced a few of their brethren to gain er themseUes together in mass meeting. This Democratic "mass" consisted of about one hundred pernons who partic ipated, and the affair is represented as something of failure. The only Da table thing we discover about it, is the adoption of the 8th of Jsuuary Locofoco platform, as the sentiment of Viulou county Locofocos." The above shows clearly to what depths of baseness the Jack has at tained; and the following shows him up as one of the most ignorant creatures in the Mate. What a pity that a sell conceited great man, who holds him self up as a light, should be so ignor ant or knavish as to attempt to palm it off on the people for a fact, that the late Congress ol the United Slates has established 6lavery in the Kansas ler ritory.

Yon will nor, however, te likely to receive it in lime lor publication in your next paper; I will, therefore, give you brief outline of the proceedings, dc. The counties oi Ga'lia, Meigs and Vinlon were represented by their del egates, who were armed with proper credentials, but by reisou of a misun derstanding, or rattier a want of un derstanding, as to the time of holding said convention, Lawrence county was not represented by delegates regularly appointed. The meeting was regularly organ ized, and Ihe number ot delegates to which each county was entitled b'xed by a committee appointed for that pur pose, when, on motion, it was agreed i hat the v ote of Lawrence count v slio'd be cast by a committee oi three, com posed of one from each county repre sented in the Convention. The next business was the selection of a candidate, which on the first bal lot resulted in the nomination ol Lew is Andeison, of Lawrence county, who is the present incumbent. In fact, the nomination of Mr. Anderson was a unanimous thing, and met with a hearty response Irom every Democrat present. The name of Mr. Firor, of (Jallia county, a young man of un doubted integrity and ability, was spo ken of as a candidate, provided Mr. Anderson would not accept. In regard to our candidate, Mr. An derson, there is, so far as 1 know, but one opinion, and that is, that he is a man of unquestionable firmness and political integrity; and having been the victorious standard-bearer of the De mocracy ot (he 8th Senatorial District in lb53, and having discharged his trust with ability and credit to lunisell and honor to the Democracy, we leel that the Democracy oi the Distrcl are perfectly sale in again relying upon success with a man who is so justly and universally loved and admired by B.
