Biddeford Union and Eastern Journal (Newspaper) - June 22, 1855, Biddeford, MaineApi Croaa and As of of l what of most Meni Sjo a convince other that to has been filled we Are inclined to believe that Hian a an invention of the father of lies far to has impaired the veracity of All who use a but we must omit the thousand varieties of on object mentioning Only two others Raonel bags and mail bags. Of the Forrae we Hare Little knowledge. We never Poe my nor handle them. We May smell inns re them. Sometime., in dream their Hare appeared to u. Like Macbeth air drawn Dagger and we have murmured " come let to clutch thee but they elude our grasp and like the baseless fabric of a vision leave not a rack they Are to a Only a Faith the substance of thing hoped of mail bags we have much experience. Often have they Bome to us precious Bur Dens joy., sorrows Hope., fear., Friendly regard Welcome remittance. We never see a mail bag without speculating on the thousand exp naion. Of human thought Aud feeling that Are sealed up in it. Here is a letter from a son in California bearing tiding of i. Aria arrival and Early Good Luck in that Distant land that open to the unit its Gateway of this Black sealed message of death Ahall Sud Denly wring the hearts of a fond family. This Little note with its finely traced address and delicate Mai of perfumed Wax brings with its tender and modestly whispered word of affection and to a trembling and expectant Lover. Here is a Dun in Bod stiff characters to frighten the a individual who can t or won t pay. Here a remittance of Funda to the student with empty pocket and a Long Bill for i Gera and notions that he must pay or credit will atop. Here the warm confidences of Friendship. Here lie confusedly mingled the expressions of ail the emotion of Roan , Hopes fears jealousies Friend ship. And confide secrets. A could we open thai mysterious bag and pry within those fragile seals would we not wonder at some of our friends into whose hearts we had looked deeper than they had Sulf Emeit us to. Few would pais the ordeal unscathed. Here and there a character shines out like the Beautiful Bow in the heavens pre serving in the same divine order and har Mony and proportion the same Clear Bright hues wherever and by whomsoever seen. Most characters like the figure in the Kaleidoscope assume different forms and different hubs As they Are transferred from Eye to Eye. Who would not Shine like the Bow in the heavens ? who can Man is like a water Melon. When he has ripened to maturity in the Sunshine of the world he becomes hollow and could you test As you Melon he would give Back the same hollow sound. But this is in analogy with nature. The Earth itself is hollow. It must be for Providence does nothing in vain and it would be a great waste of the raw material to have made it solid when it answers every Pur pose to which Man can put it by having a crust about five Miles thick. Our essay is but a bag a tulle. Tub Bac Max. Military visit. The Portland Light cards capt. Greene visited our City last saturday arriving in an Early train from Portland.

National convention. Oar paper to Day contains an abridgement of the Philadelphia correspondence of the n. Tribune giving the facts and Inci Denu of the k. N. Council up to the time of the withdrawal from the Council of the delegates from the free state. The removal of the injunction of secrecy which has been done by the Council establishes the general correctness of the Tribune accounts and allows Lull Freedom for comment upon he extraordinary positions and doings of this Council. Asking the attention of our readers to the Ultra pro slavery character of the platform adopted we shall refrain from extended remark upon the convention and its doings this week. We May say How Ever that no Northern Man in the Conven Tion who had denounced the Nebraska out rage and who had raised he voice against the constant aggressions of slavery could have assented to the doctrines of the plat form without being dishonoured and cover ing himself with damning infamy. While the platform adopted contains sentiments which none but a Northern dough face could assent to and is More odious than the Nebraska principles of the administration itself the rejected Resolution ask ing for nothing but the restoration of the Missouri Compromise the righting of a great wrong admitted Tobe so South As Well As North will be pronounced eminently just by the great Hoart of the North and the least which the delegates from the free states should have asked and been faithful to the Publio sentiment which they represented. The delegates who withdrew came Home beaten but not dishonoured. They withstood with a shrinking firmness denunciation and Blandishments and having asked for nothing which was not clearly right and made no disgraceful concessions or and compromises they have the consciousness of having done their duty being True to the great principles of Republican Liberty and faithful representatives of the opinions of a Large majority of their fellow citizens. It matters not what May be the consequences to the order on account of this withdraw al Liberty is safer the Union is safer to Day than it was before the holding of the Council for the incidents of this Conven Tion most satisfy the most incredulous nor Thern Man that the insatiable spirit of slavery cannot be appeased by crouching and Concession. The North will now learn this and having the Power of numbers in the legislative Halls will exert it hereafter for the preservation of the True principles of the Constitution. The voice of 350,000 slaveholders will no longer be regarded As potential and sufficient to Awe into sub Mission millions of freemen who have the Power to prevent a recurrence of the wrongs indicted upon the nation by a slave holding Obi Saichy assisted by Servile allies from the free states. The Way is now open for a concentration of the sentiment of the North upon a simple Pio position and that containing the question of whether the treat of our Constitution is that of extending Liberty or slavery and being uni Ted settling it in such a Way As shall in sure the safety of the Union while it will preserve Republican Liberty also. The k. N. National Council. This grand convocation has adjourned u r adopting an Ultra pro slavery Riat Kornj which caused the delegates from thirteen free states to withdraw and return to their constituents leaving the pro slavery men of Tho South to arrange All matters to their taste. Our paper last week contained extracts from Tho correspondence of the n. Tribune giving an account of the proc dings As they transpired from Day to Day. These extracts brought matters up to Friday of last week. On that Day offi cers were elected a. M. Bartlott of Ken Tucky was elected president Over Darker of n. Y., on the fourth ballot. Barker was Tho candidate of Tho Southern men and was Defeated by Tho new England men and the Western men voting for Bartlett who voted for a Southern Man in preference to one who was regarded As a Doug Faco on Tho slavery j question. Tho time Jay a committee of 31, Ono from each slate wus selected to construct a platform. The majority of this committee after two Days conference re ported monday june 11, on so much of the subject As relates to slavery the following resolves ratio had that the american party hav no Arisen upon the ruins and in Spito of the position 01 Tho whig and democratic Par Jet cannot to held in any manner Rispon Lihle for Tho obnoxious acts or Tiola cd Dodges of either that the systematic agita Tion of Tho slavery question by those parties b s Csc voted sectional hostility into a in Tsitve Ellmont of political Power and brought our institutions into peril. It Tias therefore be come the imperative duty of Tho american party to interpose for the Purpo of giving peace to Tho country and perpetuity to the Union. That As experience has shown it is impossible to reconcile opinions so extreme As those which separate the disputants and As there can be no Dishonour in submitting to the Laws the National Council has deemed it Tho Best guarantee of common Justice and of future peace to abide by and maintain Tho 1 existing Laws upon the subject of slavery As j a final and conclusive settlement of that subject in spirit and in substance. Arso Lettl that regarding it the highest duty to avow these opinions upon a subject so important in distinct and unequivocal terms it is hereby declared As Tho Soso of this National Council that Congress pos a assets no Power under the Constitution to legislate upon the subject of slavery in the states or to exclude any state from admission into the Union because her Constitution does or does not recognise the institution of slavery As a part of her social Sistern and especially Preter mitting any expressions of opinion upon the Power of Congress to a Ublish or prohibit slavery in any territory. It is the sense of this National Council that Congress ought not to legislate upon the subject of slavery within the territories of Tho United state and that any of coat pros with slavery As it exists in the j District of Columbia would be a violation of the spirit and intention of the compact by which the state of Maryland a cod too 1 strict to the United states and a broach of the National Faith. The following extracts from the correspondence of the n. Tribune will a Road with interest by oar readers As being the moot reliable accounts of what transpired after the resolutions were reported. Under Date of Juno 11, the correspondent says the majority report having been read a minority report was submitted which was signed by the follow log members of the com Mitter we. F. Johnston a a. D. Sperry Conn Thos. H. Ford Ohio an Thony Colby n. H. John s. Sayward me. John w. Foster mass. Nathaniel Green r. I. Joseph ii. Barrett it. Schuyler Colfax ind d. E. Wood wis. J. Cogshall Mich we. J. Phelps hi., twelve in All also by Richard Clemens el., and c. D. Deshler n. J. As to firs clause. New York alone of the Freo states went Tor the my parity report. Iowa was not Rencs enter. Minnesota territory went with new York As also the District of Columbia and Obeso with Tho United South carried Tho majority report in committee. In the Council or. Mallory of new York thought no discussion was needed lie asked insultingly if any Man there won id not succumb to the will of Tho majority. Got. Gardner of mass. Took up Tho Gaun wet and declared that neither he nor state nor a majority of the free states would abide by the resolutions first reported. The party could not carry a Village in Mas Achu Setti upon them. Iio charged the new York delegation with deserting the North and of even going so far in dough fascism As to complain to the South that Thoy were con ceding too much to the North. Gov. Gardner made a bold Earnest speech protesting against Tho resolutions of the Tea to i j the Council adjourned to 8 o clock this evening when the debate will to resumed. A Long and violent discussion is anticipated. The resolutions of Tho minority will undoubtedly pass. The minority Resolution is As follows or Soled that Tho i Copal of the Missouri Compromise wan an infraction of the plighted Ruith of the nation and that it should be restored and if efforts to that end shall fail co Gross should refuse to admit any state tolerating slavery which shall be formed out of any portion of Tho territory from which that institution was excluded by that Compromise. June 12, to writes in part As follows Tho opening demonstration of Gor. Gard Ner of Massachusetts on who slavery plat form yesterday evening was quite effective. The slave party have quite calculated on the governor and courted with much Assiduity. The Story of Tho hotels is that they offered to run for vice president if he would turn Back upon col leagues and follow Tho Slimy course of the new yorkers. Thoy thought that because he resisted anti slavery Ultra ism at Home he would not stand up against pro slavery us trans at Philadelphia and so plied their seductions upon . When the new York insult was Given to the minority therefore on the submission of the resolutions As to slavery and the governor got the floor much interest was manifested to hear speak. Sil Cuco prevailed As he remarked the it the question of Tho gentleman from new York was a pertinent if not a polite Ono and should be Calmy looked in i to face and frankly clearly and decidedly an swered. It was asked whether any Man of Tho convention Felt that he was not bound by Tho decision of a majority of its members ? to would answer it for himself for Massachusetts for an All but unanimous North and turning to the new 1 York gentleman to would it Woro an entirely unanimous North for then the Council could not and would not Duro deny its demands. Ilis answer then was that they could not be bound by Tho action of thu t or any other body of men for a single moment to a declaration of principles that were a no to Tho Constitution to Liberty and to Tho rights of Tho humblest citizen of this Republic. On Tho proposed platform they would not stand for a moment in a Ning e tillage of new England and Thoy ought not if they could. Tho new York gentlemen deserved for out Lle Roding Tho South to to swept away As Thoy were doomed to to by an outraged and indignant people. The South itself was ashamed of n cd York for their efforts hero to reject just concessions to Tho North. New eng land Tho North the West asked Tho Only Boon of a just and honest pallor a and that they would have or Shako to dust Oil their feet As a testimony against Thoin. Gov Gardner proceeded in this Strain for some minutes amid profound Sil Cuco interrupted Only by cheers from Tho free states and closed with an eloquent Appeal to Tho magnanimity and chivalry of the South to concede the restoration of Tho mis Souri Compromise. I i 0 resolutions of to majority i to committee Werro drawn by or. Itu Well of submitted by or. Lyons of a i., committee adopted them i to 14 the Jusys being those who signed the minority Rewert. Previously another Sot of Resolution had been adopted by the committee which if anything Wero More till. Icy were the production of \ esp Ian Ellis of Tho american Organ at w Ashington and proposed in Ono of Tho series to Firbie the discussion of Iho slavery question in or out of its councils in an of its forms by Tho american party. This us adopted by Tho committee. Yeas 15 a i 14. Another of this series proposed that Tho Constitution and Liws of Tho Gen eral internment should to rigidly obo Vad and enforced and was intended to apply particularly to Tho Furtivo slave Law. A Rico state Mernor proposed an addition extending us application to these Laws which guaranteed popular sovereignty " to the actual settlers in Tho territories and was voted Down by and he South 13 to l 1 bus you Seo Tho spirit and purpose that control hero. Under Dale of june 13, 1853, to says speaking first of the n. Delegation who proposed Tho platform on slavery or advocated it. The new York delegates who propose the greatest treason and have enacted the do guest misrepresentation of their slate at this meeting have at last Felt the Force of this influence and turned their guilty faces reluctantly Back upon their former course and shrunk at the accumulating voice of a sound Public opinion and the merited denunciations of All honest and faithful men into the which their weakness and wickedness alike Merit. The resolutions which ther coveted Tho Dishonour of introducing went Foith to the nation and the returning voice has been so uniform and powerful in its denunciation so decided in its Assurance thai their adoption sealed for Ever Tho Fate of the american party in every Rree slate in the Union that weakness has smote their Knees and they prostrate them wives m disgrace before their allies and Peg to to spared the cup which they had so eagerly prepared themselves and so in sult ugly thrust to the lips of their Northorn associates. Loathed despised scorned in every Quarter they came Here with the airs of Rule Sand assumed to dictate every action Aro now held in less esteem even by those who would have profited by their bareness than the poorest slaves of their plantations. None Are found so poor As to do them reverence. With them Piset in to forgetfulness and a despised grave their favorite candidate for the presidency the redoubtable hero of Tjie stable and of Filli Buster Sra the live Oak George Law. United if not Lovely in their live death should not be so cruel As to separate them. 1 he North has thus far won a great moral Triumph in the slavery contest in this convention. Every Day has witnessed its pro Gress in position and influence. Its de mands were marked by Justice and moderation and they have been pushed with As Luuy boldness and Earnest eloquence against firmness and Union in the natural oppose icon and a base treason in their own ranks. If the Vail could be torn away from the proceeding of the last week if they could be published to the world in All their proper detail they would exhibit one of the most admirable political contents Ever known in this country. Never has the South been so met in a National convention of any party by the North while never perhaps did the latter enter into a convention at och disadvantages of weakness in itself and strength in it opposing Force. It is not the time now perhaps to award the credit to those who have led in this contest and to whose skillful management and persevering ability the present results axe owing Bat awarded it should be at am time and if not by others it shall be by your correspondent who hat been a close and careful of Serrer of the whole Progress of the Battle. The debate waa prolonged until i o clock last night and an attempt of the free states entered to fix 11 to Day for Clos ing it and taking the vote was lost. The speech of Thomas a. Ford of Ohio yesterday afternoon has been the great Effort of Tho debate. Kenneth Layner said he had not heard anything like it for Many years. Or. Ford is a virginian by birth a free forcible popular stump orator. He is the " coming Man of Ohio rely upon it. Those who Beard speech of yesterday will not soon forget or it. The mod crate men of the South Hung their Heads and the fire eaters fairly raved at biting sarcasm and keen denunciations. He put the Rasca Lity of their course upon the repeal of Tho Missouri Compromise to them in the Moat pungent and elective style. " you stole our Jack knife said he " we caught you at it and now you won t give it up. To is like a Man who bought a horse on sunday and gave note for it then sold the animal and pocketed the Money and then turned around and repudiated pay ment of note because Given on the Sab Bath it was illegal. You acknowledge you have had the consideration you admit the repeal to be unjust and an outrage and yet you refute to right objection was made by several Southern members to the assertion that they admitted the righteous nes of the repeal. " Well then said or. Ford " get up and Tell us what you do think about it. Let us hear your judge Hopkins of Ala Rose and defended the repeal As that of an unconstitutional act Cunningham of s. C. Said ditto and so one or two others. Go ahead said or. Ford " let us hear Vou Kenneth Rayner ii it expected thai Southern gentleman generally will rive their menial i Ord Yea Yea let u hear you Rayner Well then i have to aay that the repeal of the Misouri Compromise was an uncalled for and unnecessary act an outrage even a violation of plighted Faith and i would have seen my right Arm Wither and my Tongue palsied before i would have voted for great indignation hissing and exclamations from the Ultra South judge Hopkins with much feeling asked i this re Mark was intended As an attack upon . Rayner responded no he gave every Man Lull Freedom of opinion on this question without impugning motives but for himself he had no hesitation in declaring convictions to be what he had Psi erred. " when resolutions were introduced into the last North Carolina Senate to approve the repeal and endorse senator Badger s vote for it i denounced them and dared their mover to press them to a Panago. I told i would speak against them for three Days and that they should not pass except Over my most powerful exertions against Thorn. And they did not pass they were taken from the table by their Origina Tor " or. Ford alter a while resumed and poured Forth a torrent of invective that was perfectly overwhelming. Ohio " he Sakl " had stood up for the compromises of i850. Had maintained them in Good Faith but if Tho South refused to right thin great wrong we will never More be your lick spittle and Boot Blacks demean ourselves to catch your runaway niggers. Two thirds of the Ohio delegation hero Are virginians by birth there is one who did not leave Vir Ginia until head was As White As it is now but they will repudiate Tho land that gave them birth they will no longer be bound by past compromises in favor of Southern slavery unless you come Man fully Forward and return what belongs to is. And what you have stolen after having cot the pay for giving it to hut i can Ive no proper idea or this speech or of the effect which it produced. It we remarkable in Power in application in completeness and Able and powerful As were the previous efforts of Foster and Wil son of Massachusetts to this was awarded the Palm of he h superiority on All Handt. It told right and loft in the Ranka of the opposition and left wounds that must rankle Lor Many a Day. The debate on the resolutions was continued until nearly eleven o clock wednes Day night when the Council so says the correspondent of the Tribune commenced voting the first vote being taken upon the minority report As a substitute for the majority and the resolutions were lost yeas 51, Naya 92. This vote with Tho exception of that Given by n. Was a sectional on the delegates from Tho free slates voting to substitute and Koso from Tho slave states with a portion of the new York delegates voting against. Tho Council having refused to adopt the restoration of Tho Missouri Compromise the Kenneth Rayner Compro Mise proposition was then voted Down. Yeas 44 nays 97. A motion for Tho pre Vious question was then made and carried and Tho main question being put the pro slavery resolutions of Tho majority of the committee Wero carried yeas 80, nays 59, and thus says Tho correspondent of the n. Tribune " the Black Power or secret Midnight conclave was Tho subsequent events connected with the withdrawal of Tho delegates from Tho Rico states from Tho Council and their action re Given under Date of Juno 14. We make some extracts the result is of Courso Tho Dofat of Tho North but it a a come out of Tho contest stronger than Whon it wont in and it will Appeal from Tho Council to Tho Puoplo with powerful offset. The Northern members meet for conjugation and action this morning. Thoy will Rpu Divite the decision of Tho convention und in Tho words of gov. Gardnor of Massachusetts Shako off the dust from their feet us a testimony against the minions of slav Fry who Hyvo prostrated americanism As they have the Republic to their basest ends Philadelphia Juno 14,p. M. To of Tori us Atlin of in from the free state has been transmitted you by telegu pm. Thank god there it a North at hut. The South a aghast it Doea not know what to make of it. The North never acted so before. Tucy big Alliey implore they a nations ill timed al mischievous As they May consider them. Regarding the slavery Extension question v the leading vital controlling question of the Lime i must act with those who while thinking As i think in respect to it will by the action and organization which thy propose most surely accomplish the a Tiposo for which every Earnest and sin Cere opponent of the slavery propaganda will labor. The journal agrees with me " that this great consideration resisting the designs of the tyrannical slave oligarchy now Over rides All the old party divisions and effete party organizations of the country. They must give Way to i they already have Given Way. Men Wiio think alike Mist act together upon thu question Paramount 10 an others now pending the journal is in agreement with to Freo spoilers the barn a incr democrats As Well As with nine tenths of the whips in this state. Why should it not act with them Why Don t it the question it admits is first and greatest. Why should the journal oppose these men incessantly not to say bitterly even though it May disagree with them or Many of them As i doubtless do on other and subordinate questions. Coalitions Between men of similar views Are natural and easy and justifiable because founded on principle but Between those of opposite opinions they can hardly be other than without principle or justification. Why should the journal Stem to favor the pro slavery administration party in prefer ence to what is known As the Republican organization t in tuesday s Issue the editor intimates that he would sooner go into convention with be old line democracy than with Tasse who Hare fell obliged to abandon that party on account of Ita pro slavery Tenden cies. I must beg leave to say that in this respect i concur More nearly Wilh the View of the late Hon. Lather Severance expressed in a letter which i had the Honor to receive from and which i have before me As follows i must aay that in the division of the democratic parti my am Riz Hies Are altogether Wilh the bar burners would much sooner coalesce with them than with the wild the journal thinks differently. I am sorry for it Good Caos loses its effective advocacy. But if it perceive that it in by the course it has marked out Render utter service to the cause it has and the views it Haa endorsed than by any u 1 Cise of the elective franchise guar to. Them by the Laws under which they Are organized abound be promptly protected by the National executive whenever violated or threatened. And that Weet not conscientiously act with those who will not Aid a in the correction of those National wrongs and who will not even permit their fair con duration and their full discussion. Third we further declare our continued and unalterable determination to use All honorable efforts to secure auth a Modifica Tion of the naturalization Laws aided by such an Elevation of Publio sentiment As will preserve the True interests of the nation and will guarantee the three vital principles of a Republican government spiritual Freedom. A free b. Ble nil free schools thereby pro Moling the Grest work of Amer ionizing America. Fourth that we invoke the aim of legislation to arrest that growing evil the deportation by foreign aut Bontea of paupers and convicts to our shores and thai As oar National Constitution requires the chief executive of cur country to be of native birth we deem it equally necessary and important that our diplomatic representatives abroad should also possess no foreign prejudices to Bias their judgment or to influence their official action. j.
