FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER, 2TJ, .1850.
Il hi very common now to hear dem
ocrats say that there is no disturbance
in Kansas, but that, all tho noise in
made for political effect to injure the
democratic administration. No long
er ago than last Thursday Mr. Polk
made a speech in Winchester, and de
clared that there was no trouble in
that territory. We will make one sin
gle argument in relation to this subject
which we think is sufficient to put this
question to rest for this canvass. We
say that if there is no fighting nor any
danger of fighting in Kansas, then Gen
Pierec did very wrong in calling Con
gress together to pass a bill of appro
priation to keep a standing army there
in order to quell disturbances, and the
freesoilers were right in opposing the
bill. Cen. Pierce's friends must not
make such statements to protect his
administration from rebuke, for in so
doing they make him guilty of a great
and unnecessary folly, by taxing the
country with convening Congress, and
the burden of keeping up the army.
l')"inncralc"annot escapcthe dilemma,
la shunning Scylla they fall upon Cha
rybdis. Take either side of the ques
tion you please, gentlemen, you must
bear one or tho other fault, and of the
two take your choice. Such things
as these must break your cauHC down.
Mr. Poll; is no advantage whatever to
ou. Ho in too imprudent in taking
.bis positions. The fact is none of the
democrats belicvethc statement of Mr.
Polk, although they repeat it. It has
become necessary to endorse whatev
er their speakers say, right or wrong,
in order to sustain their characters for
veracity. We think there is war in
Kansas. The last accounts from there,
.September 10th, are truly awful, Mr.
Polk to the contrary.
The report that a Fremont Electoral
t icket had been nominated in Virginia
d though stoutly denied by the demo
crats has been verified by a telegraphic
despatch from Wheeling to Mew York.
I i? rented that every electoral enndi
in a dmocra!.. This, thing, was
denied by Mr. Win. Polk when he
i ir 'c a speech at th'u place. What
will democrats of Tennessee think- of
ii. It will be rcmci.iber;J that this is
ti.o s'ri which our democratic speak
ers say gave lh first blow to Ameri
canism South of Mason and Dixon's
line. In turn we now say that this is
the first State South which gives a full
democratic supportto Freemont. Let
the two facts be added together, and
then state the result. It is said that
these are democratic times; and then
are thfsn democratic tricks.

principles to announce; no new plutform
to establish; but nro content to broadly
rest where their forefathr-js rested up
on the Constitution of tho United Slates,

Resolved, That the Government of tho
United States, was formed by tho con

geographical sections, materially differ

in social and domestic institutions; and
that any cause which shall permanently

geographical distinctions, 'must inevita

Resolved, That the Whigs of the Uni

Tho danger so clearly discerned by tlicl
Father of his Country, has now become
fearfully apparent in the agitation now
convulsing the nation, and must bo arrest

Resolved, Tha all who revere tho Con
stitution and the Union must look with
alarm at the parties in the field in the
present Presidential campaign one
claiming only to represent sixteen North
ern St.ates, and the other appealing
mainly to the passions and prejudices of
the Southern States; that the success of
either faction must add fuel to the flames
which now threaten to wrap our dearest
interests in a common ruin.
Resolved, That tho only remedy for an
evil so nppaling is to support a candidate
pledged to neither of tho googtaphical
sections now arrayed in political antag
onism, but holding both in a just and
equal regard. We congratulate the friends
of the Union that such a candidate exists
in Millard Fillmore.
Resolved, That, without adopting or re
ferring to the peculiar doctrines of the par
ty which has already selected Mr. Kill
more as a candidate, we look to him as a
well-tiled and faithful friend of the Con
stitution and the Union, eminent alike
for his wisdom and firmncs-for his jus
tice and moderation in our foreign rela
tions for his calm and- pacific terpera
ment so well becoming tho hnd of. a
great nation for his devotion to the Con

in executing the laws; but, beyond all
those attributes, in possessing the one
transcendent merit of being n represent
ative of neither of the two sectional par
ties now struggling for poetical suprema
cy. Rtsoluid, Thai in the present exigen
cy of political affairs, we are not railed
upon to discuss the subordinate questions
of the administration in the exercising of
the constitutional powers of the govern
ment. It is enough to know that civil
war is raging, and that the Union is in per
il; and proclaim the conviction that the
restoration of Mr. Fillmore to the Presi
dency will furnish the best if not the only
means of restoring pca-tc,
Resohtd, That we cordially approve
the nomination of Andrew J. Donelson
for the Vice Presidency; regarding him
as a national, conservative patriot, faith

Rcsohed, That a spontaneous rising
of the Whigs throughout tho country and
their prompt tally to the support of the
highest national interests, and the spirit
hern displayed, sufficiently attest the na

that a National Whig Committee of one
from each of the State, be appointed by
the president with authority to call any

It is n fact that the notorious Col. Lane,
who is the leader of the free-soil and abo

was lately a Democratic member of Con

for tho Kansas bill, and whose praises

It is a fact that Fremont himself tho
Black Republican candidate for tho Pres
idency has always been a Democrat of
tho first water, and was elected as such,
and by democrats, to the United Slates

New York Aroused. .
The N. Y. Express of the 13th inst.
come to hand containing three columns
and half devoted to a description of tho
magnificent Fillmore 8nd Donelson dem
onstration which took place in New York
City on tho night of the 12th. We have
room for only the following paragraph
The great American meeting and pro
cession on Friday night was the most im
posing political demonstration that ever
took placo in this city. It was no boy's
meeting; it was no gathering of foreign
hirelings. But earnest and true, whole
souled Americans turned out, the whole
city as one man, to vindicate American
principles, and to do honor to the Amer
ican candidates. We are very safe when
we say that this procession called out
two hundred thousand people. In Union
Square and neighborhood there were at
least seventy thousand persons, and the
procession and Spectators in tho streets
did not fall short of one hundred and
thirty thousand more. There were thou
sands of banners in the procession, which
was over five miles iu length, and tho en
thusiasm which greeted it on its line of
march surpassed anything heretofore seen
in Gotham. New York come out nobly
for Fillmore and Donelson.
Still they Conic.

speakers in that district, all democrats,
have repudiated Bachanan and come out
for Fillmore and Donelson.
F. H, Pierpont, and four others, of
Fairmount, Virginia, have come out in a
strong manner for Fillmore. They were

THE SO.VS OF OR BAT WEN.
Why is it that there ore so few distin
guished sons, of great .wcqt1 Qalhopnt
Webster end Clay hove all left sons, but
nono that scorn, to tako thoir fathers' pla
ces as orators or as statesmen.' Lotd
Bhathani, indeed, might boast of an ex
ception in William Pitt, but where shall
wo find another? Tho younger Pitt,
Fox, Sheridan. 'Brougham, where are their
sons? The present Sir Robert reel,
is, indeed, of tho third generation of men
who have attained to eome degree of dis
tinction in Greot Britain, and have sat
in the English House of Commons. But
then, none of these men have been persons
of genius they were good business men,
and nblo tacticians, but .nothing more.
Distinction in the exact sciences would
seem most apt to reproduco itself. ' Her
schel, father and eon, hove been greot as
tronomers, and the whole family of Na-
piers has been distinguished for two or
three generations. In the lino ol mili
tary men, such as Napoleon, Washington
and Jecbon, where are their descendants?
Lord Wellington has sons, but they hove
added little honor to his name thus far,
are not likely to add much more. Oli
vpr Cromwell had a sin, who hod indeed
the good senso to resignhh Protectorote,
but it was because he folt he had not the
ability to keep it. ' In the history of po
etry we have ho instance of two great
poets, father and son. Milton and
Shakspearo left no sons. Sir Walter
Scott's sons are all dead, end wereof'no
account." Byron's only surviving child
cannot bear, it said, to hear her fathers
name mentioned, and boasts thct sho has
never read his works. In fact, account
for it as wo may, the descendants of men
of great genius havo been, as a general
thing, few and undistinghished. On
what principle, thenis this fact to be ex
plained? Is it simply that as the ccorn
cannot grow under the shadow of the
fullgrown, overspreading oak, so youth
ful genius in the second generation is per
petually depressed by a sense of inferi
ority in the presenco of the first? Oris
it that tho standard of attainmentbecomcs
elevated so high, that from the very first
these men never hope to realize anything
at all equal to their own ideas, and will
therefore attempt nothing? This niny be
the cause in part.
But there are other causes. Tho sumo
immediate necessity is not laid upon the
second generation, as produced the no
blest efforts of their fathers. Dr. John
son would never have written the finest
pages of the Rambler, had he not wanted
a guinea to pay for his dinner, and it was
Constable's liberal advances for the
building of Abbotsford that stimulated
Scott to write theWavei'lj Novels. Tom
Moore's truest inspiration was the prom
ise of three .thousand gnineas for a po
em. Even Lord Byron wrote some ol'tfie
mos-t brilliant passages of his Don Juan
as much under the influence of Murray's
check book as his favorite gin and wa
ter. But the sons of successful men of
genius are often too much protected, and
petted and spoiled. They cither have
plenty of money, or learn to live with
out it. They are not sufficiently thrown
by stern necessity on their own resources.
Even this would fail adequately to ac
count for the facts of the case. The truth
is, that the productions of real geniui in
any direction ore aii exhausting crop,
and the soil that produces it has to lie fol
low for a generation or two at least, if it
ever regains its fertility. It is principally
as an exhibition of the folly of heredita-
distinctions that this subject is worth trac
ing. All over Europe, the supposition is
that the sons
of great men so
inherit their parents' abilities as to make
it the safest method for the State to give
them a voice in the government of the
country. " Yet tho reverse is the fact.
Tho hereditary nobles of any country
jeem to be the least progressive of all
classes. . The House of Lords gratly
lost its power in England, and only re
tains what iuiluence it has by means of
new creations constantly taking place.' -
A Dead Loss. When the democra
cy were getting up their grand torch
light procession they appropriated three
hundred dollars to pay for banners on
which were to be inscribed mottoes de
scriptive of the joy which the unterrificd
felt at the news which they expected to
get from the Lumber State. B ut tidings
went all wrong, end the democracy were
"laid out flat," So the banners were
not used, and the three hundred was o
bad investment. In this connection, as
they say in New England, it is pleasant
to quote what the organ of the nigger driv
ing democracy says of the resultin Maine;
"'There is a great deal of noise over

she attracted no particular attention.

of the ballast to trim her better. But.
at this moment, it was discovered that
an old leak had spiung a new, (from a
fraud practised iu the caulking by cer

were ordered to duty at the pumps

vessel was supposed to have at least
six feet water in thc hold, while sig
nals of distress were flying. She was
evidently stilling to sink. The Fre

with thc intention of rescuing such of
the passengers and crew as might at

for tho influence of the late Whig Con
