So tat as Mr. Plylby is concerned.
we think as much of him as some of

we would any other such precedent

it would give jou to support me far that

No one can listen tn the brief and qui
et announcement which withdraws the
name of Gen. Cass from the Presidential
contest, withoutsowe melancholy reflec-
ions. Even those who bave differed most
witb Gn. Cass on some questions oipu b
lie Dolicr. recognize in nii one of the
statesmen of the oldest and nest
school of the Republic, one of the last
the men who were brought up at the feet
of the Fathers of the Republic a des-
ciple of the apostles of the revolution
He and others like him withdrawn, we
bave to choose among smaller men. For
himself be has DOlbiug to regret in the
fact that be is not to be President. To
hare been the Governor of the great
Northwestern Territory, the mother
free slates to have been the represent
alive man el that section for so many
years in '.he Senate, and (he Kepreseuta

In regard to the Presidential nomina
tion we have before us an article in the
Chicago Times, which spaaking by au-
moriiy, says: oenaiur uougms ia uui

.We assert, what ' we know to be the
fart, that Senator Doaglaa will not par
m it the lift of his Mime to diriiUfihe
National Convculion. Let those uho are
candidates be blloteJ for; if an ol
:lifin is nominated, alt well; and lieu.
khould it niifortnnately occur that no
candidate tail command the requisite
strength, then the Democracy can fall
back upon ibe man who nerer yet fail
ed tbem iu the hour of peril nbose
hand, whose name, whose voice, and
whose abilities are now as the ever
have been always at the service of the
Democratic parly.
It is this spirit -the spirit that indu
ces the prominent statesmea of Democ
ratic party to sink all personal withes
nd aspirations in their feeling for the
common cause, and, to withhold their
names from the tamass, in-order that
the representatives of the party shall
come together in national Convention
free to chose their leader, untrammelled
by prefrencea it is this spirit that it
to redeem the fortunes of the ptrty aud
restore its ascendancy.
Hon. Nelson Cabbiri, of Hills
boro, Whig candidate for Governor in
1853, met with a serious accident at
Newport, Ky., on Monday last. He
was stepping from the wari-boat upon
a plank, which was covered with frost
and ire, and his foot slipping, he fell
into the shallow waiter, breaking both
bones of his right leg, just above the
ancle, We also learn that his head was
bruised, by striking a stone.

Case. The New York Tribune of Mon
day says, that in consequence of the
death of Sidney C. Burton, the principal
witness for the prosecution iu the cele
brated Martha WaBhington'case.the pro
secutlou has been abandoned, and all
the defendants discharged from bail.
It is said that :;jane was pardoned,
out of the penitentiary so Jsat his
evidence migut be obtained in the new
trial that was expected to taka place in
New York; but as the case now stands,
the guilty either gounwhipped of justice

The object of the Convention seems
to be to consult over tha manner in
which 'things must work.' The call
says that there 'is an important crisis'
in their affairs. 'Our Jriends,' says
tne call, have now a majority in the
Legislature, Let ti$ demand our
rights, Whew! Will the Black Re.
publican leaders dare to assist their
friends, now they hav the power.'
We shall see, ,
To the call we notice appended tne
name ot Prof, Scott, Barber and
Hair Dresser, of this city, who is a
prominent member of the Republican
party. It the Professor has as much
influence in the Convention as his
Hair Tonic has on bald heads, some
thing will certainly grow out of it !

During the late d i Uicul ties iu Kansas,
a Urge number of Shawnee aud Dela
ware Indians exprewed their willing
ness to join in the fight under the ban
ner of the free State men. The Law
rence correspondent of the A. Y. 7'imes,
writing under date of Dec. 2d,says their
head men and braves had arrived iu
that town; 'with the blood of war yet
running in their veins.'
Atchison, who made himself odious
by encouraging illegal incursions into
Kansas, is charged by Missoui papers
with belonging to the Know Nothings,
and we have not seen the charge were
concocted in a secret conclave. A6nny
