THE NEW ERA.
ZDITEP BY w Ml . HENRY WOOD, THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 1860. Our Platform. 1. Opposition to the Extension of Slavery. 3. No more Slave States except by compe tent affirmative Legislation. A. Hostility to the re-opening of the Slave trade. 4. liberty of Conscience end equality of rights for native and adopted citizens. ' 8. Repeal of the Fugitive Sieve Law. •6. Opposition to the principles announced in the Dread Scot Decision, 7. -The policy of granting >6O acres of Land to actual Settlers on the public domain. 4J. Hostility to the corruption and extravagance of the National Administration. Edward Bates. Among the many distinguished states men whose names have been mentioned by the Republicans in connexion with the next Presidency, that of Edward Rates of Missouri stands prominent. The high conservative position of Mr. Rales entitles him to this distinction. Born and living in a Slave State—with sympathies and interests identified with the South—his is nevertheless a patri otism that embraces the welfare and glory of the whole country. On the slavery question,, ho occupies a noble position. His views coincide with those of all conservative northern men, He believes slavery to be an eril. He deprecates its farther exten sion. He denies that (he constitution has power to establish or protect slavery in the territories. He believes it can only be established and protected in the "federal territory by competent affirma tive legislation. This is the position occupied by con servative men at the North and we be lieve is the only true national position Why would not Edward Bates make a good Republican President ? He is a conservative man ; he is an experienced statesman ; a safe counselor ; a gen tleman of marked ability, and loves the •Union and the Constitution. His name •inscribed upon the Republican banner •in the coming struggle, would be a *•* tower of strength.” This is our opinion. But we claim in it to be only “ a law unto ourself.” Relief Laws. As one of the old settlers, deeply in terested in the affairs of the State, we rejoice in the passage, by our legisla ture, of the various relief laws, during its present session. They are demanded by the extraordinary exigencies of the tirnas. Under ordinary circumstances, and in ordinary limes, they would not be needed. The people could get along and would do so, without legislative fa vors. Nor do we believe the legislature would have dreamed of the Redemption law, or the Appraisement law, but for the almost universal voice of the State demanding some such measures at their hands. The entire community were irretrievably involved by the late sudden and nnexpected financial crisis of the country. Our people saw no way of ever extricating themselves from debt, under existing laws. It is true, there was absolutely none for them. They saw ruin, and or,iy ruin, before them. They neede.; 1 , lime and a human chance of working their way out. Tho Supreme Court, on the interest question, and the -Legislature, by its relief laws, have .given them both. The beneficial effect ©f these will now be seen. First of all, these acts of the Court and of the Legislature, will inspire, in all classes of people, fresh courage and renewed activity. This is everything in a country as yet undeveloped. Cour age, energy, and industry alore can develope its resources, and give it pros perity. Without these, the fertility of our soil, all our marvellous natural ad vantages, avail us nothing Our’s is emphatically an agricultural State. We must rely upon the industrial class for our prosperity. But it is this class upon which the blow of financial adversity has, for the most part, fallen. The people needed a less rate of interest—it ihas been given them. They needed a ittle time to raise from the soil the means with which to meet their just debts—it has been given them. They needed to be relieved fron: the constant fear, that, at any moment, jheir all might he swept from them by sudde.-: legal process, in spite of their best in tentions and best endeavors to meet their obligations—this has been done. They needed new courage, new hopes, and new prospects—they have all—and animated by them, will engage in the spring’s work with zest and spirit. gf*The California Legislature elects Latham United States Senator, to fill <he vacancy occasioned by the death of Broderick, A PLESANT TOWN Is Fair Haven, situated on Clear Water River, ten miles from the Mis , sissippi, and about 18 miles from St. Cloud. It has a population of one hun dred and thirty, between thirty and forty buildings, a beautiful location, and a rich adjoining country. Mr. O. D. Webb, formerly of this place, has, dur ing the last fall and this winter, built a first rate grist mill there, 30 by 40 feet, three stories high. It is now running and turning out some of the best flour we have seen anywhere. There is also a good saw mill, owned by Messrs. Partridge and Olds. Mr. Partridge was the first settler at Fair Haven is princi pal owner, and is an active, energetic business man. We were in town but a short time, but saw much to pleases us. We attended a meeting of the Lyceum —heard the “ Knapsack” read, a week ly paper, full of wit, humor and good local news, and were sorry we could not have likewise heard the ladies’ “ Budget.” We saw enough to con vince us that the Fair Haven neoole are l eminently intelligent, fond of intellectu al improvement, good schools and good reading. The township of Fair Haven takes in all that part of Main Prairie below the Lake, embracing a tract of country the best adapted for farming purposes, of any we have seen except the Sauk River Valley. We have been informed that 10,000 bushels of wheat are now for sale on Main Prairie alone. Apples. Mr. Clarke, of Lake Superior, made some interesting statements the other day at th eFarmers’ Club, relative to the raising of apples there. We copy : He spoke ofapple trees on the Apos tle Islands, in Lake Superior, latitude 46, 1-2 planted by Mr. C. H. Oakes of St. Paul, ome years since, which had borne on alternate years for seven years. He had eaten apples from them, and the trunks of the trees were six inches thick ; the soil was composed of the debris of old red sand stone, and in the winter the snow usually lies two or three feet deep. Those facts, he said, should encourage the farmers of Minnesota to press on in their endeavors to produce apples, and he believed they would fin ally be successful. TOWNSHIP BILL. The House on Monday concurred in the Senate amendments to the township Bill. There was some little delay and strife on the amendment making the County Treasurers the collectors of taxes, instead of the Town Collectors, but this was also finally concurred in by a vote of 41 to 3.9. The Committees.— Speaker Benn ington has appointed Mr, Gherman chairman of the committee of and Means, thus assigning him the leadership in the House. Grow, of Pennsylvania, is chairman of committee on Territories. Col. Aldrich of this Stole is on the committee of Indian Affairs and Agri culture, and Mr. Windom is on the committee ofPuplic Lands. RELIGIOUS SERVICES, Religious services are held at the Episcopal Church in this Village, by Rev. Mr. Chamberlain, the first and third Sundays of each month, commenc ing at 2 o’clook, P. M. At the Gongregational Church, by Rev. Sherman Hall, every Sunday, com mencing at 11 o’clock, A. M. At the School Hous, by Rev. Mr. Hooper, Methodist, every other Sun day, commencing at 2 o’clock, P. M. We regret to learn that David O. Oakes, Esq., merchant, of this place, is about leaving for Pike’s Peak. Sauk Rapids will lose an enterprising business man, and our community one of its best citizens. We have received an interesting letter from “ Antonio,” Woodstock, which we shall make room for next week. “Vindex,” “Junius,” “Can terbury”—shall all appearin due course HASTINGS MARKET Wheat has advanced in this market to 85 cents'per bushel. We have heard of a few loads selling for 88. Oats are buoyant at 25 to 30 cents. We call attention to the adver tisement of Colbath & Co., Anoka. If you want an excellent article of flour, go to the Sauk City Mills. Marlatt has Stewart’s Re fined Candy for sale. Jgjf* John H. Allen, Esq., of Prince ton, is authorized to receive and receipt for subscriptions to this paper. SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE The House adopted a resolution on Wednesday to the effect that nfter the year 1860 the sessions of the Legisla ture be held biennially. The resolu tion was adopted by ayes 33, nays 29. Burnt in Effigy. We clip the following from the Rich mon Enquirer. Comment is unnecessa ry : Resolved, Ist, That we, the Students of Roanoke College, under the protec tion of the laws of Virginia, do express our sentiment towards Win. H. Sew ard, Joshua R. Giddings and W. Phil lips, by the infamous stigma of burn ing them in etfigy. Resolved, 2d, That we fire a cannon as each image is consumed by the flames and give three cheers fir our intrepid, indefatigable, vigilant Governor, Henry A. Wise. Resolve, 3d, T hat we shall ever be ready to enlist under the standard of our State, to defend Virginia and her rights under all emergencies. Resolved, 4th, That the proceedings of this meeting be published in the Salem Register, Staunton Vindicator and Richmond Enquirer. On motion, the meeting adjourned. D. B STROUSE Chairman. Ceorge H. Chumberley, Secetary. 6 o’clock, P. M.—The Students as sembled in the hall, formed a torch !l"hl procession, accompanied with mat*' tial music and one cannon, and proceeded to march through the village, when they were joined by a number of citizens, who crowded along the side walk cheering with stentorian voices The procession was everywhere saluted by the patriotic cheers and gleesome laugh of the fair daughters of a State where flourished and faded a Washing tons. The colored population hailed the occasion as jubilee and heaped bitter execrations upon those persons who •,!ri der the avowed garb of deliverance rivet moretightly their chain* Permission being given ' oy t h e authori tes to fire cannon Vvithin the incorpora tion, the effigies of Seward, Giddings and Phillips were successively burnt with an interval of five minutes each, and, as the lambent flatne flickered upon the dying ashes of each, the heavy re port of the cannon accompaned by dea shouts from the multitude de clared the heart-felt odium justly heaped upon those infamous wretches, who have proved themselves a scourge to the na tion, a disgrace to humanity, and, leagued with the infernal powers have, with sacriliginus hands disclaimed, dis honored, and profaned the patriotic life blood of onr fathers sacrificed upon the altar ofLiberty. The procession then returning, were hailed with the same ac clamations of jov. Slavery Restriction, We copy from the St. Louis Evening JYcics, the views of Hon. Edward Bates of Missouri, in relation to the non-ex tension of Slavery, as follows : the south in honor bound to THE ORI GIN*!. RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY LAW. Mr. Bates 'ities riot, therefore regard the non-. at j n r I j !jg i on G f Slavery into the xerritories of the Union as es'ablishing a distinction between property ; but simply as maintaining a distinction al ready established, willingly assented to by the South at the formation of the Government, and ever sience. It is only at the instance of mischievous dem agogues that the Sofith is now tempted to change its position, and abandon the literal and traditional compromises of the Constitution. As a true and upright citizen Q who loves his country’s wellkept faith, as he does his own private honor Mr. Ball's oppos s the attempt of south ern fanatics to mak Slavery overleap its original rights, limitation, and rela tions to other property of the Union. Inasmuch as the entire Democratic party of the Free States are as. dec'dedly opposed as even the Republican pa'- rt y to the extentsion of Slavery over terri tory previously free, it is evident thai Congress will not interfere. Tthe South ern men who object to Bates, might ask themselves whether more honor or advantage is gained by asking what can not be had, and submitting to the fatal necessity of denial and defeat, or ask ing oniy that the present limits, privil eges, and guarantees of Slavery be maintained, and obtaining it with the cheerful and hearty concurrence of nine-tenths of all parties in the Uuion. The Minnesotian, of the lGth, in speaking of the proceedings of the Legislature that day, says : The Legislature did a good day’s work yesterday. In the Senate the General Election and registry bill pass- 1 ed ; also, the apportionment bill. These two measures are of great importance to the State, and will be hailed in the future, as a Reform, of which the Re publican party can feel justly proud. They will be signed by the Governor, and become laws. In the House, many bills were pass ed, and much other business was trans acted. The members ars now at work in good earnest, and when the Legisla ture adjourns we shall be able to sum up a record which will not suffer by comparison with the doings of any previous Legislature since the organiza tion of either the State or the Territo ry. The Appraisement Bill Ig"* This bill came up in the Senate on its final passage on Saturday, and was referred to a special committee of three, consisting of Messrs. Heaton. Robnison and McKusick. ggj’* Rev. Mr. Partridge will receive subscriptions for the *Veir Era, at Fair Haven, The Other Side. Mb. Editor :—You will allow me, with the promise of being brief, a short space in your columns to reply to your correspondent, “ South Side,” and his favorite candidate, Gov. Wise. Now, “ South Side’s” candidate, I have no doubt, is a “ fine old Virginia gentleman.” I like his determination of character, his avowed statesmanship, and I agree that he makes a very good Governor, but I am of the opinion that his disunion sentiments totally unfit him to preside over the destinies of the whole Union. But this far “ South Side” and myself will agree, that if it should please the Almighty Dispenser of all things, in his righteous judgment, in view of the iniquities of the people, and the many transgressions of His commands by the Nation, during the past three years, to again scourge us with a Democratic Ad ministration, in order that, through affliction, we might again turn to Him, 1 say let us have Gov. Wise for Presi dent ; but knowing that His mercy cn dureth forever, I feel confident that such a calamity will not soon again come upon us. Charles J. Faulkner said at a Demo cratic meeting, held in Virginia, t', jat “when that noble and gallant son of Virginia, Henry A. Wiso, declared, as he said he did y u October 1850, that if l ?rP luorit should be elected, he would seize the national ~Qrs nal at Harpei ’a Ferry, how few would at that time have justified so bold and decided a mea- sure ?” Here is “ South Side’s” candidate anticipating John Brown in his attack on Harper’s Ferry : and if he had come out with his threats, would he not have received John Brown’s punishment ? and thus left “South Side” without a candidate. But the Richmond Enquirer , the lead ing democratic organ South of the Po tomac, after the election was over, naively announced to the victims of this disunion panic, that “ Gov. Wise threat ened to dissolve the Union only to save the Union.” Now “ Sou!!.’ Side ” is this honest ? It may be honest, but I hardly think it fair to scare us so, and then, when the danger is past, to laugh at our fear, and say “ I was only in fun.” But the most ridiculous ot all is, that he and his friends should try it again on the eve of this election. Are they so foolish as to imagine for a moment that there breathes a man in the free States who would hesitate for an instant, to de posit his vote for the man of his choice for President, let him be who he will, on account of those disur ion threats ? No, “ South Side,” I believe there is not a man whose vote can be influenced by these menaces. If such there be, he is unworthy the name of freeman. And “ South Side” may rest assured that the majority will elect their man, and I think the Republican party is the majority ; —but notwithstanding the as surance “ South Side” gives that he will beat us again, “we will be better able to tell who is Governor after election.” But let who will be elected, the “ Union shall and will be preserved.” I have much more to say, but I know vour space will not allow. North Side Sou£b Side Again. Mr. Editor,— Ai/nw me to congratu late you for the rapid improvement you are making under the tuition of your correspondent, “ South sSide.” You have left Sambo in his happy southern home, to cultivate his cotton and tobac co, say his prayers, and get to Heavt.n when he dies. You now occupy the space formerly devoted to him, in pro moting the interest of your patrons ; and sir, they appear to be getting so nume rous that it will require an enlargement of your paper, or all you correspondents will soon be crowded out. Well, sir, I anrglad of it; advertisements do no harm to anybody, and they pay the printer. But what is better still, you have got back as far as Judge Douglas. That beautiful eulogy on the gallant Senator of Illinois, delights me, and makes me feel proud of my p*upil, Well, sir, if Judge Douglas does as you think he will—get the nomination at Charleston —you will find “ South Side” at your side, notwithstanding his Squat ter Sovreignty, doing battle with hisshort sword to the best of his ability. And now, by way of encouragement, let me say, press on—but one short step'furth er and you will be a Wise-man—and take that short step soon, or “ Minnie” will get a head of you. She thinks Gov. Wise a very good sort of man, but if he had only been a Yankee, he woufd be a little more so. Well, there is no disputing about taste with ladies ; but don’t you falter now, if Wise gets the nomination, with your long sword to head the column, the way the brave sons of this noble young State will wheel into line, will strike terror into the ranks of Black Republicans. What, Sir, tell me that Henry A. Wise cannot carry the State of Minne so to the tune of thousands ? The idea is preposterous. Let us calculate a little. Every State in the Union has rep resentatives in Minnesota, so have the nations of Europe. The sons of the sunny South would draw to him as the needle to the pole ; then there are the middle States—some of them would vote for him, because it can be demonstrated that he was mainly instrumental in pro curing the nomination of our venerable President, and that nomination saved us from the curse of Fremontism. Oth ers, who differ from the President on the Lecompton question, would vote for him because he too urged the submis sion of the Constitution to the people of Kansas. Then, sir, we have the regular downeaslers, the real five yankee, who has laid the world under tribute to bis genius, and must have a wo* ,J , ~ •* u -0 sell his notions in. , anv . Dem" ' ui these nre C true as steel, that love the Union for the sake of the Union. Then again, there is a portion who make a good deal of noise thout free soil, and all that, who cure as little about the poor darkey as they do about the d—l, and less about eithtr, than the almighty dollar, and the dollar they will and must have ; they will very shrewdly “ guess” that dividing the Union will not be a money making business, and might re sult in a loss of custom ; so these will be likely to vote fot Wise, because he has said that he would sooner have a war with Old England than New Eng land, and that he will fight for the Union in the Union. And lastly, look at the mighty host of our foreign-born citizens, mostly Catholics, —think you, sir, that these would prove angateful to the man who, by almost suf-erhuman exertions,! rescued them and their religion from the degradation to which Knownothing ism intended to consign them ; but of that more anon. South Side. sgp=*“South Side” has a pleasant way of making convert!, but we really think he is taking more credit to himself, in our case, than justly belongs to him We admit he is a lively preacher, and enters into his theme with all the earn estness and eloquence of a Scotch dis-j 1 senter ; that he is candid, polite, racy,l and all that. While he has been preach-: ing, his hearers, of which he has many, have all been attentive listeners, includ ing ourself. Yet the inspiring affirma-j mation, “Whereas we once were blind, we now see,” does not apply to our po litical state of mind. Before the advent of our political evangelist into the columns of the .Ytic Era, our eyes were wide open, and wej saw. We saw Southern fanaticism and Northern fanaticism, each threatening to destroy the Union. We saw Southern! conservatism and Northern conserva tism alike lifting up their voice against it More recently we saw the South showing her teeth, and snarling, and the Northern lion shaking his mane and be ginning to growl. Our eyes have been open all the time, and while we mean In behave ourself during “ South Side’s” ministrations, and listen attentively to his lugubrious exhortations, as becomes a political Christian, we shall at the same time calmly consider what our duty is, and endeavor faithfutly to do it, follow ing after no strange gods, either in the I North or in the South. We were surprised the other evening, to find in ihe Post Office, at this place, so large an amount of mail matter — 90 many immense mail-bags filleo- —reminding us of the time, a few years h* t o, y.'hcM a half-bushel bcskel would hold all trie papers and letters that came once a month. The office here has now become not onlj one of business, but one of responsibility. Yet our obliging and attentive Postmaster O. B. Day, Esq., keeps fully up to the times ; he has, at much expense and inconvenience to himself, fitted up the office so as to accommodate the increas ing demands, both of government and the people. Besides the office proper, Mr. Day has taken the room adjoining, twelve by fourteeii feet, for the safe keeping of the mail-bags that lie over at his office. This room is accessible only to the Postmaster and his clerk. The rent of this room would be worth to Mr. Day for other purposes ten dollars a month. The up-river mail filling several large bags, lie over every night. Three mail bags for Red River, lie over here, six days each month, from Wednesday night till Saturday morning. Mr. Day keeps in his office, also, a good safe for Registered letters, as well as other letters supposed to contain money, or other valuable enclosures.
