CatpnUican Pniidential Electors, AT I WALTER D. M ou think of him DOW republican party, Vote for Jacob S Crane, of Burlington, If any other ilmn he ia elected, republican votea must do tho work. Let us not have to record the shameful fact that the republican party of Racine county have defeated their candidate for their best office, a man as well qualified as any other in the oouuty, a teous gentleman, and one who wilt make an active, efficient officer. The Democracy, aided by traitors, are boasting that thoy will elect n crat for clerk of the Court, and to ac- complish this we fraudulent ballots with the name of S. S. Spnffurd on them See to it then, all good re- publicans, that instead of the name of S. 8. Spafford, that of J. S. Crano is on every ballot you poll. It would be humiliating to ihe republican party to give this, the best office in the county, to the enemy. Let it not be done. D. P. you want for Clerk of the Board a man who is well qualified in evwy respect, for the position, vote for D. P. I NICHOLAS H. you I want a first rate Distriot Attorney, vote (for Nithohw H, Dale. KEMEMBI'lft, that tho Democratic party though dhldod.Ustrugglingspas- modicnlly to do nil the haim it pcssi- My can. REMEMBER, that the Ducoocratio party has no principle human slavery, and that they believe it to be merely a question of piofit or loss whether human blood should be igao- tn niously bought nnd sold. REMEMBER, that the Democratic party when voting on a resolution staling that "the Kansas Nebraska act does oonfe' upon the people of the terri tory of Kansas, full power to exclude slavery from said voted thtit resolution down, REMEMBER, when the great Kan- sas-Nebraska struggle was in progress> a promincut Republican, introducing a resolution in Congress, stating that "the true iutcnt nnd meaning of the Kansas- Nebraska act was neither to exclude or introduce slavery into Kansas but to leave the people of that territory fcctly free to regulate the institution of, slavery io their own way, subject only to the Constitution of tho United that Democrats voted thia prop- osition down, i REMEMBER, that Douglas and Jolinson voted thua. that 'popular sovereignty' which does not leave the people of a territory as tree to exclude slavery therefrom, as to protect it there in is a mere farce. REMEMBER, that the votes on the Kausno'-Nebruska allow Douglofc believes in no "Popular reignry" that can by any possibility, or under any circumstances exclude slave- ry from a territory. REMEMBER, that the one sole aim and end of the Democratic party at tho present time, is to extend aud protect tho institution of slavery. REMEMBER, that the Democratic party long ago forsook their old pitncL pies, and are not contending for the same issues that they were, even four short yenrs since. Douglas nays that his "great principle has given the South a degree and a half more stave territory than they ever utkedfor. REMEMBER, that Douglas says, his "great principle" has given to sla- very, territory "five times the size of New York REMEMBER, that tha republican Homestead bill was killed by democratic votes, and that nn almost worthless Democratic Know Nothing substitute was urged upon the people in its place. REMEMBER, some Northern dein oorats try ti> lie out of this predicament, and others content themselves with tid iculing the bill. REMEMBER, that Douglan is all things to all men that at the South he IH friendly to "the peculiar institu- and at tho Nortli he "don't care whether slavery 'u voted up or voted down.'' REMEMBER, all who are staunch supporters of each a Homestead Bill as the Republican party iu the House proposed last winter, are derided by Southern Democrats who are determin- ed to keep the Territories for their Slaves to till, and who with hardly an exception proved themselves bitter en- emies and opposeis wf the Bill ia every shape and in this connection remain, ber, also, that Northern Democrats count on a large southern yote for Douglas. REMEMBER, the old Democratic party is no longer national, and thai instead of being banded together to support light Doinociats are now divided into factions and are fighting among themselves. REMEMBER, that "ahouse divided against cannot REMEMBER, to hasten the destruc. tion of this now dangerous, nqw decaying and tumbling down edifice, by voting the straight, the entire publican tiukut on Tuesday, the Qtb. day of November, 1860.

Such Democratic opini6ns as the Vote for Simeon S.Bradford, for Member of Assembly in Third District, following are gems worthy of the study of Northern Winking Men. The Charleston jtlercitry, the organ of the Democracy in that city, says Slavery is the natural and normal condition of the laboring man, wheth- er WHITE or BLACK. The great evil of Northern free society is, that it is burthened with a servile class of MECHANICS and LABORERS unfit for and yet clothed with the attributes and powers of citizens. Master and slave is a relation in soci- ety as necessary as that of parent and child and the Northern States will vet have to introduee it. Their theory of free government is a delusion.
