Lincoln's Supporters. Wm. Lloyd Garrison, in a speoch in 185G, said: " The Union is a lio. Tho Ameri can Union is an imposture, a covenant with death, and an agreement with hell; I &m for its overthrow." This same Garrison is an ardent eupporior of Lincoln's ro-eloction. Anothor of old Abo's supporters is Frod Douglas, who, in a speech over tho hanging of that old murderer, John Brown, said: 1 " Froiu this timo forth I consocrnto tho labors of my life to tho dissolution f tho Union, and I don't caro wheth er tho bolt that rends it comes from hoaven or helL" . And yet theso creatures havo tho audacity to call themselves " Union men," anil to denounco tho Democra cy, who battlod against thoir insane schemes, as "traitors," "secessionists," 41 disunionlsts." Carl Shurz, who has boon made lnth a Minister and a General by Mr. Lincoln, in a' party speoch in New York city, rejoiced that " The old Union is dead. If Jeff. Davis and his followers wore to sub mit at tho foot of Capitol Hill, and repent in ack-cloth and ashes, tho old Union could not bo restored." ' Carl Shurz, supports Lincoln. Tho Chicago Tribune,, the loading organ of Illinois, in an editorial in ono issue, uses tho following lan guage: , . ," " TJTtat mean tin's talk of r tutoring the Union as it tca9 There can bo no Un ion as it was, until the Confiscation Act is erased from tho statues: that's certain. ' ' Tho Union as it was' will novor bless tho vision of any pro slavery fa natic or secession sympathizer, and it never ought to. ft is a thing past, haled by every patriot, and destined never to curso an honest people, or blot the pagos of history again." Tho IVibunt goes for Lincoln. The Southern rebels are unanimous for Lincoln. . Tho Richmond Dispatch says: " If we coidd command a million of votes in yankeedom, Abraham Lin coln should have them all." The Richmond JZtannner says: " Abraham has bcoi a good Empe ror for us; ho has served our turn; his policy has settled, established, and made irrevocable the separation of tho old union, a nation essentially foreign." Tho Richmond Enquirer says: " - " Whether wo look at this nomina tion in tho light of peace or of war, we prefer Lincoln to MtClellan." Tho Macon Go.) Appeal says : The afvession of a consorvntivo democrat like McClellan : to the l'residency would do infinitely moro to paralyzo tho South and build up a reconstruc tion party in our midst a most fatal calamity than tho coiubinod Torts of tho party in power.". ... We 'might give extracts innumera ble of this character front southern paper and spooches but it is unneces sary, extroines . meet in this issue as they always have, and work together it harmony in the devilish business of destroy ing.this Nation. Secession first cropped out in New England in 1808 in opposition to the embargo measures of Jofforson's ' administration, and again, at tho Hartford. Convention 1S14. It finally culminated in tho present, gigantic rebellion of tho south and to:d.y every Kttccs.tiouUt, North arid Mouth, f.ivr tho election of AIinh;iifi I.i:irjlii a the on'y incam of a'oi)ipli-.Mng liis r.cf.)riou dosigur KtXTl'CKr AX1 Viuci'ma Resolu tions.

Tho Federal Government backed down from tho position it had astum cd in tho action which called forth theso resolutions. Tho State Rights party, under Mr. Jefferson, camo into power in 1801, afld continuod thero, with hardly an interruption, until Lincoln was inaugurated in 18G1. Tho samo dospotical meanness tho old Federals tried to put through by forms of law, ho has practiced without any law at all. His usurpations have boon fur greater than thoso which gave riso to theso resolutions, and it is well for democrats at this timo ear nestly to consider the spirit and action of the Fathers in tho faith. Tiik Dkhock.vtic Nominee rou Cox aaFss. Mr,- Willi ah "NVilL.ikd, nom inee of the Convention recently held at Flint , fu . J2p"4r in Con gress for tho Cth Congressional Dis trict is a merchant, doing an extensive business at Ontonagon,Lnke Superior, whoro he has rosidod for somo years. Mr. W. whose former residonce was in Oneida County, N. Y.,' is a first class business man, a gentleman of oducation and refinement, fully quali fied iu every respect for tho position for which he has been chosen, a ster ling, upright, rolyblo Domocrat, who fears God and goos for tho Union as as it was, and tho Constitution as it is, and who ought to beat our illustri ous fellow-townsman Hon. John F. Driggs at least a thousand votes in the District. The Congressional con test is now fairly open, and tho De mocracy of this soction will so arrange affairs as to be ablo to say to tho pres ent incumbent, in tho languago of his loving admiror, Hon. James Rirney, " you woro badly beaten -in your own Ward, in your own City and in your own County." Lot the rost of tho District respond, "and hero also" and a victory worth rocording will havo been achieved. Tocunlary Arguments. Having alluded last week to tho pecuniary arguments of tho creator of tho republican party, Horaco Greeley, in favor of disunion, which in their day were hawked about by tho very men who are now so intensoly patri otic and union loving, as tho only truo political gospel, wo copy a few extracts as a sample. It by no means shows an excess of modesty for thoso M ho characterized tho stars and stripes in thoso days as " hate's ; polluted rag," to go into oxtncicH now over " our starry banner," but humbug is a great, and abolition impudence, peerless: . "These would, to a great extent, make amends for diminution at the South, and would as we think lessen tho loss to ono half, or ulottf seven Mil lions of dollars, at tchtch sum, or forty tents per Jieud, ire fed disposed after this examination to estimate the pecuniary value of the Union to the North. Tribune, April 18, 185, conduswn of a long edi torial. . " Such is a portion of tho tout of the Union. What is its value has bcon shown. On a futuro occasion wo shall furnish some further items of the cost'; but meantime will beg our readers to refloat whether a trade that cannot be worth a dozen millions por annum is not dearly paid for by the maintenance of a system that tales from the North so many millions annually to be applied to the purclutse of, Southern land, the support of JSoutlurn tears and tin rewforcetnent of the power of slavery as an element of political, control, whon thoy might so advanta geously bs applied to tho improve ment of rivers nnd haibors, by which Northern farmers could chiefly got to market, and : the , . improvement of schools, at .which northern children might bo chiefly educated. Tribune, Api il 10, 18'ilt, conclusion If a three-column editorial. ' "Wosoe, then, tbat the Union is maintained at a cost of taxation to the North twico greater than would bo re quired for tlie North alone! It is main tained at tho cost of relinquishing all right to sell government in this im ttortant matter of protection to froe labor. What its value is ha$ been shown, h'e ask our readers to compare the forty cents per head gain from tlie Union with the many dollars per tea 4 that it costs, and detei mine for themselves tho justico of tho assertion ; of tho South, that tho continuance of tho Union is of such inestimable worth to tho North, that however disgrooable may bo tho purchase of Cuba or tho ropeal of tho Missouri Compromise, tho bitter pills must bo yet swallowed. And let thom also detonnino for thom solvos what regard is to bo paid to, and what torror is to bo felt at, tho slttvo-drivers' menace of dissolution. Tribune. April 21, 18oj, conclusion of a three-column editorial.' Adding this quantity to thoso al ready obtained, we , are disposed to placo tho .loss of tho North from tint continuance of tlie Union, at about 10 por head, while tho gain therefrom does not oxceed forty cents the dif ference of $3'.) CO per head, being, as wo think, tho net annual loss to tho Northern State. Tribune, April J, ISoJL. Tnu Fikst Gtx fkom Illinois. Tho city election in Alton, Illinois, lately held, was hotly contested on party grounds. It resulted in the success of tho McClellan ticket by from two to three hundred majority. In 1800, Iiincoln carried Alton by thirteon ma jority. This shows tho treaiendous j chanrjfl that g''ing on in the West jJ32CTho following exposition of tho Chicago Platform was recently given in a speech, by Washington Hunt. The eutira speech is excellent, but we place tlus particular portion by itself, that it may receive undivided atten tion : " We hear a groat deal said about ! tho platform adopted at Chicago. The platform was not intended for such men as Mr. Greeley and Mr. Sumner, tho leaders of tho republican party ; it was intended to proclaim to this people and the world that we are still a froe, a civilized ami .a christian pco- plo, and that wo intend to maintain constitutional principles in this land of ours that wo intend to use all tho onergy wo possess to preserve our con stitution, and that purpose is express ed in phraseology which no fair-minded man can mistake. You havo been told, no doubt, that by tho terms of the platform adopted at Chicago, the democratic party wero in favor of im mediate peace and separation, that we are in favor of dividng tho Union. ; Thero never was a moro ilagrant cal umny. They begin with tho assertion of unswerving fidelity ; that while they condemn this war as it is now carried on and the policy by which it is conducted, they doclare that imme diate efforts should bo made for tho suspension of hostilities. In what wa? On tho basis of tho Foderal Union of tho States, and, to tho end iliut tMMututton may be restored. This is tho one condition that is tho basis on which wo proposo to estab-, lish a Union. Wo purpose to say to the pooplo of the South, whenever thoy will como and tako their place in tho Union, the states shall again be equal, our government will bo restorod to its former condition ; tho framework will bo the same ; the relations between tho states and tho general government will bo tho same; the rights of the citizens will bo tho same, and we will again becomo , freemen indeed under this federal bond undor tho agis of law. (Great applause.) And when wo are reproached, I will ask whether our republican friends are willing to make peaco on theso conditions? If they are then they ought to go with us. If tho course is pursued which I have attempted to placo boforo you, if earnost efforts bo made to bring up the disunited people of the South to thoir old relation to tho people of tlie North to bring theso states N back once more upon tho guarantee and as surance that they aro to havo their rights, 1 boliovo that tho Union will be restorod, not that it is an easy task. It is ono of the greatest labors that was ever placed upon men sinco the beginning of tho world. To re-unite tho parts after such a strugglo as this, is a work thatrequires wisdom, states manship, skill and forbearance It is easy to destroy, but far moro difficult to restore It is not to bo done in a spirit of hatred; it is not to bo done by doclaring to tho pooplo that we in tend to hold thom as enomics, but it is to be done by going back to those old principles which wero so scrupu lously observed in the early history of our republic, when we woro united as one people by common rocolloctions and by kindred hopes, and by all thoso tics of intorcsts and affection which combined ieoplo together until this spirit of discord camo in and des troyed tho paradise of American pros perity. (Applause.) Now aro you representatives of theso principles for tho purposo of restoring peaco and tho Union, for thero tan be no Union without peaco, and no peace without reconciliation?" Ax Oion or Royalty. The N. Y Evening Fort, (radical ropublicaa) at tho timo of its promulgation thus commented upon Lincoln's last pro clamation for "500,000 moro :" "Its tono is not that of tho chief of a republic calling upon his fellow-citizens to support a causo in which all aro aliko iutererted, but rather it is the tone of an European sovereign telling his subjects what he require of them." How AitK Yotr, Lvboriso Classes? A few woeks since tho N. Y. - Times, tho special organ and exponent of the viows of the abolition administration said: ...... "Tho property of tho wealthy should not be voted away by, or bo in any way undor tho control of tho laboring classes, and the right of suffrage should be regulated between the rich and poor ac cording to tlteir wealth." The Flat Heads at Won. Tho Saginaw Yalley Hrpubh'can thus noti ces some of tho doings of this tribe at Saginaw City: , :. , Oca New Flao. Somo of our en terprising jtir.ens, whose heads aro wonderfully level on the political ques tion, have hoisted on tho republican polo in this city, a banner w ith the namo of Lincoln and Johnson in scribed on it " Long may it wave." Exciiaxoe our Prisoners. The Springfield Massachusetts Republican says: Tho cry goos up from press and peoplo everywhere, now that tho rea sons for non-oxchango heretofore are understood, or rather tho absenco of good reasons appears. Lxchango, ex change, this is tho demand reloaso our poor mon from tho half-starvation and nakedness, and dirt of the prisons and pens of tho South. We have just heard of an illustration of their condi tion, of ono good man, major White, who has languished in the hated IJbby and sinre then further South, sinco tho fatal Gettysburg. Twice ho hns been on tho 'evo ol escape, oneo detected, once retaken after having tho hoixi of lilorty. And now with all his hardships it is said his mind is giving way. Uetter so for him, that ho may bo unconscious of suffering ; but alasl tho agony of his friends, tho useless, purposeless suffering. Rotter death on the battle-field than this rain and useless agony. There must bo help, and tho peoplo demand it. Wo have waited long enough. AVhatover questions remain behind, let our men bo exchanged, man for man, so far as they can be.' 1 JG"3T President Lincoln acknowl edges tho receipt, from several ladies of Trenton, of "a cano with hallowed associations."

Tlie following letter of General Fremont, withdraw- ' ing his mime as candidate, is publish- eu ro-uuy: Rostox, Sept 21. Gentlemen I foel it my duty to take one step moro in the direction indicated bv my letter of tho 25th of August, and withdraw my namo from tho list of candidates. Tho Presidential question has in effect been euterod upon in such a wuy that tho union of tho Republican party lias beoomo a' parauiouut necessity. Tho policy of tho Democratic party signi fies cither separation or re-establihh-nient with slavery. The Chicago plat form is simply separation.- Gen. Mc Clellan's Jotter ol acceptance is re-es- tahlitdtmcnt with slavery; The Re publican candidate, on tho contrary, is plodged to tho ro-establLihnicnt of tho Union without slavory, and however hesitating his policy may bo, the pres sure of his party .will, wo may hopo, fori o him to it. Rctwoen theso views, I think no man of tho liberal - party can remain in doubt, and I believe am consistent with my antecedents ju withdrawing, not to aid iu the triumph of Mr. 1 Jucaln, .but to do my part towards preventing tho election of tho Democratic candidate. . In respect to Mr. Lincoln, I continuo to hold exact ly tho sentiments contained in my let ter of acceptance. I consider that his Administration has been political ly, military and financially a failure, and that the noceuiutry continuance of it is a causo of regret to the country. Thoro never was greater unanimity in a country than was exhibited, hero at the fail of Sumter, and the South was powerless in the faco of it Rut Mr. Lincoln completely taralyzod this gon erous fooling. ' . lie 1 destroy od tho strength of the position, and divided the North. Whon he declared to the South that slavery should be proteo-' ted, ho built up for tho South a strength !! .1 .1 111 wnicn otuorwise iney coum nave nev er attained, , and this has given them an advocate on the Chicago platform. The Cleveland CouYcntion was to have been an onen avowal of tho condom nation which men had been freely ex pressing to each other for tho past two years, and which had been made fully known to the Rrosident, but in the uncertain condition of affairs, lead ing men wero not found willing to make public dissutitdaction and con demnation to vender Mr. Lincoln's nomination impossible, and his con tinual silence has( established for him a character among tho people which loaves now no choice United tlie Re publican party is reasonably suro of success, lhvittea tho rosuit ol tho Presidential election is, at thef least, doubtful. .:,' .' I nm, gentlemen, liespectfully and truly yours, J. C. FREMONT. Tho following is another letter from Gen. Fremont, in which ho givos his reasons for withdrawing moro fully: Nahaxt, Sept 17. Gentlemen I encloso you my letter of reply to an invitation from somo of my Republican menus to meet them at Fancuil Hall. In declining their invitation, I havo informed them of my intention to stand asido from tho 1 residential canvass, and assigned my reasons for doing To avoid repe tition 1 encloso you the letter, com- Lmunicating to you now officially my uesiro to withdraw my name from tho list of Presidential candidates. In this discussion I havo tlie approval of such of our friends as I have been ablo to consult, and urgod by them on tho approach of tho election. I have thought it not prudent to incur tho long delay of consulting others, but I have reason to boliovo they will unite with me fully upon tho proprioty of my withdrawal. I do not any way intend to withdraw from my sharo in the labor which wo jointly undertook to secure tho triumpn of tho ideas re spected by tho Radical Dcmocrncy. Whatever the next ' administration may be, we owo to ourselves to form a paradox compact, and establish by its thorough uuity of exercising a pres sure strong enough to insure the event ual success of tho principles for which we havo been contending, the ro-es-tablishmcnt of the Union, tho aban donment of slavery, and of practical respect ' for liberty. It is indispensi blo that earnest men should dovclope thomsolves to watching tho progress and insuring tho success : of thoso issues, regardless of men or parties. Mr. Iancoln says ho docs not lead but follows tho will of tlie peoplo. 1 It ro mains, then, for tho people, in tho event of his ro-oloction, to roquiro this following at his hands, and fur ther, to requiro that in tho execution of his duties ho keep scrupulously within tho Constitution and tho laws; to mako him recognize that he holds his power, not to be usod at his pleas ure, but as a really faithful servant to the people. This is tho important duty which we havo now to perform, although as representatives of tho Cleveland movoment wo surrender our function to the duty of watching par ty policies in tho interost of liberty ana tho Constitution. What steps are necessary in the performance of tho duty must bo tho subject for futuro consultation. ' : I- nm, Gentlemen, liespectfully and truly yours, J. C. FREMONT.

' " Tendency to Consolidation and Dcs . potism. -s IJirOttTAKCE OFTIIE STATE CoVtlOf MEXTB. From the Ana Arbor Journal, (Itrjiulllein )' Alexander lIamiltonouco6aid: 1 "It may safely le received as an axiom in our political system, that tho State governments will in all Possiblo con tingencies afford, complqto . socurity against invasions of the public liberty by .. tho national authority.; . Projects of -usurpation cannot be masked under pretenses so likely to escape tho peno tration of select bodies as of the peo ple at large. The legislatures will have bettor Taeans of information. They enn discover tho danger at a dis- tanco and possessing all tho organs of civil power and the confidence of the people, they can at once adopt a reg ular plan of opposition in which they can combino ail tho resources of tho community." Mr. Madison' took a ' similar viow (in the 4Gth number of tho Federal ist,) of tho importanco of the : State crovernmonts, as bulwarks of defence to secure tho peoplo of every sec tion of tho Union lrom tho encroach ments of federal power. The State governments may in fact bo very prop erly regarded as tho cliief bulwarks of the liberties of tho peoplo against tho strong tendency of the national government, in time of war, and high party excitement to extend its' pow ers by broad and " latitudinarian con structions of the Constitution, and the plea of necessity and to encroach upon tho powers of the State govern ments, and upon the rights and priv ileges of the citizen. , This war and tho ambition of the radicals, who have obtained control of the President, of Congress," and the Republican party; have developed a strong tendency in both the Executive and Legislative branchos of the na tional government, under the plea of necessity, and, tho assumed war pow ers of the Presidont, to consolidation, to constant encroachments upon tho legitimate powers of tho States, and upon tho legitimate rights and privi leges of tho citizens to such extent, as to sap tho foundations of tho State covernmentu, threaten to overthrow thoir rightful sovereignty, in domostio and interior matters and to concen trate all the Bovorign , powers of tho States, as well as the nation, in the Federal Government, and leavo to the State government only such powers, as dependent corporations, as Congress and the President, lor tho time bomg, do not soo fit to exercise, nor to as sume. Such wo believo to be the present tendency of tho Federal Gov ernment in the hands of Presidont Lincoln and the radicals of tho Re publican party with thoir doctrines and principles of government, their viows of the war power, and of the necessity of destroying tho local and domestic sovereignty of the several States, in order to overthrow tho in stitution of slavory, and clovato tho colored raco as nearly as jtossiblo to a level with tho white lhey soem blind to any evil but slavery, and to overthrow that ono groat evil to tho slave (which by tho by is a very tri fling evil to the peoplo of the froo States, living at a distanco from slavo communities.) they have adopted a policy and a courso of measures, which, if carriod into effect, will substantially chango and revolutionize our present foderal system of government, gradu ally convert our national . government into a central consolidated despotism, and mako tho President, for the time being, with his immonso patronago and power over the army, nearly as absolute as the Emperor of Franco. ; The rebellion and slavery, and this cry of necessity to put thom down have had a terrible iniluenco upon tho public mind and upon Congress, and induced Congress to oonfer upon the President most extraordinary and un defined powers goncrally very proper in tho presont exigences of the coun try, so far as tho lowers conferred are defined; but vory improper so far as undefined, arbitrary and unlimited powers are given to him, cither by ex press grant, or, by implication. Con frpss sooms to have resigned to the 'resident nearly all their owu powers, except tho powers of taxation to raise and collect revonues to carry on ' the war. They havo in effect and by ; a formal, legislative' act, said tolling you may, by military power close any , and every printing oOico and legisla tive body and public meeting which may condemn or, criticize your; policy, if you think it expedient to do so; you may imprison, without warrant. or criminal charge any individual whom you may soo lit; you may dictate who may, and who may not, be candidates for office in any State and who may and w ho shall not vote at any election, and may control tho election in any State by military power; and if any of your officers should bo prosecuted in a court of justico for carrying into effect your arbitrary orders to do any such act of violence and trespass, the defendant may plead tho act of Con gress and , tho order of tho President, as a perfect justification and deionco for any such trespass. , , , Tho sonato of Jtome in tho time of its greatest humility and degradation, when it sat at tlie ; mercy , of tho Cto sara, to register tho commands of the emperor, nover passed an act nominal , ly conferring on their imperial roaster tho authority to oxercise moro unlimi ted and despotic powers, than can bo justified under that most reuiarkablo act . of Congress. If 6uch an act of Congress is to o continuod during tho war, and a policy is to bo continuod in relation to slaves, and - tho slavo states, which will mako tho war in terminable, wha,t is to become of our country? What is to bocomo of tho proper soveroign powers of tho state governments, and of tho pooplo, who have a right to elect their own rulers? It is timo for tho pooplo to reflect upon these things, and to consider whither, wo aro drifting whothor towards tho havon of safety, or towards tho rocks, : shoals and quick sands which must inevitably wreck tho no- blo &liip of state called tho Union and. destroy us as a nation. .,, ; . .
