Truth should be borne in mind by eve. Ery voter when he approaches the ballot Box on monday next to exercise the invaluable right of suffrage and yet another truth should aug be remembered and it is this men Are nothing principles alone Are everything. The Kle Clion of monday j next i an important one All arc so but this is of More than Ordinary consequence. There Are questions at stake questions a testing the Welfair of the stale and nation. Others May and do Appeal to the prejudices of party and in hackneyed terms cull upon their followers to so to the polls to support party men and party Mea sures. Those who do this Are unmindful of the solemn and grave responsibilities which devolve upon the Patriot. We can not in View of these responsibilities Call upon the people in the language of partisanship. 1 lie conductor of a Public press should have a higher aim than the mete attainments of party and be capable of some thine better than sounding the Bugle of party. There Are times when the situation of Public affairs May allow of the exercise of simple partizan feeling when the ship of state is bounding gaily Over the Waves and threatened with no danger but when a now she is tempest Tom a sense of com Mon danger should Call for the dismissal of every partizan feeling Ami the Union of All for her preservation. We raise now no Mere party Shibboleth but we earnestly entreat every Well Wisher to his country to go to the polls and vote against the men who approve the most Gigantic wrong Ever perpetrated in a free country and against those who maintain a studied silence in relation to that wrong we entreat the voters of the state to show by their voices on monday net that what Ever others May do Maine will not Sanc Tion the perfidious doings of the present National administration in procuring the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. We regard the questions connected with the local affairs of the state As quite insignificant in comparison with the mighty one which has been the subject of thought and excitement among the people since he Pas Sage of the perfidious act whish opens up to slavery a territory As fair As Ever Tho Sun shone upon and larger than the old thir teen to the pestilential hankering curse of slavery. This is the grand question at Issue and the voters should meet it like men. What Are the facts 1 should Albion k. Parris be elected governor or should the result of monday s work How that he could to in january what a mortifying and Pitia ble condition would our state present chained As it would be to the avowed car of slavery the election of Parris would be hailed by the South is a Triumph of the principle of human slavery. The organs of the National administration would rejoice with exceeding Joy and the hearts of the True and humane would be saddened by the untoward event. We Are confident that Parris cannot be elected by the peo. Pie the danger is that corrupt and unprincipled politicians May by dint of their sagacity in trading overreach the people and thwart their Wiah a. Fellow i ticks you have it in your Power to Avert the Dan Ger by voting for such men and Auch men Only to wats in the legislature a will turn their backs upon the Blandishments of men who place partizan considerations above the country and voting for Auch per Sona to Congress As speak out boldly their disapprobation of the perfidious repeal of the Missouri Compromise and Are ready to interpose every legislative obstruction to the further spread of the Evila of human slavery. A voir Given in any direction which May by any Pola ability make al Bojc k. Parris governor is a vote in of Vor of slavery and an approval of the doing of Congress in adopting the Nebraska Awin die. A muss almost. Two Oak Tifa for the nomination of candidates to represent the town in the Legisla Ture Hare been held in our place Thia week rhe first in order of Lime was held at Beetho Ren Hall on tuesday evening and waa de nominated a " people s caucus " of anti Nebraska men. Our readers arc referred to its proceedings published by request in an other column for such information As they Ina need respecting its decisions. We Bellevo that this caucus was Well attended and entirely harmonious although we Are not ure that its chief result was expected by All who participated in its proceedings. The and Duto selected is a worthy Man of the progressive school has a Good Many warm friends As All progressives have is Young America to the Back Bone and if elected will probably do the Best he can to Muke anybody governor but Albion k. Parris. We believe his sym uthie8 arc with or. Morrill. Tea second caucus was held on wednes Day night assembling under a Call prepared by the whig town committee requesting the whig Friend of Isaac Reed to meet and select a candidate. This caucus As Well As the Erst was numerous by attended enthusiastic though Soiu Cohut unique in its proceedings we learn. Somehow or other a candidate could not be got through it no How. There in plenty of balloting but Tho chairman declined to declare the result. Of urn told the the clips Rutan of the Ooton Mittee to receive sort and count the votes or. Murch who is a very zealous straight out whig and gifted with highly conversational Powers und who is always cocked and Pri sued for a speech took the floor contend ing that Tho vote ii hould he declared though it wus evident from his manner Thero wus in the ballot which wus unpalatable to him. In the course of his remarks the doctor who is a valiant As he is Wordy pitched head and shoulders into the people s caucus held the Nii lit before. In the course of the speech the doctor to make n charge of forestalling Slick upon the originators of the people s caucus declared with great Eui Phetsis that the Typo for their Call was ret up u week in our office before the Call was issued Aud that one of the boys in our office Lohl him so. Now doctor and to address you Serwna by our Hoys Are very truthful try circumspect in to the company they keen Don t Tell talks out of school except to Greenhorn have their Eye Teeth Cut and never told you any such thing. The Call was printed and posted within two hours after it wus handed in and it was a Cash Job. To car nothing for the erroneous statement you made but we most defend our office boys from All accusations of keeping company with suspicions persons or telling tales out of slut of. We leave Vou to Settle the hash about Tho forestalling with the very respectable gentlemen who signed the Call and shall return soon to the doings of the exclusives. As we go in for strict Justice and impartial records we Aro obliged to say that your remarks were praiseworthy made in a Good cause received i to marked approbation of the meeting but an they filed to euro the chairman of his obstinacy and make him Sensie of his duty to declare the result of Itic balloting they Wro nil lost labor. Notwithstanding Tho refusal of the chairman to declare the ballot its general features have leaked out and this should admonish All who Urr Ungo things for the musses not to put their Trust in Leaky vessels. A hand Tome majority of All the votes were Given so Rumor says for a very ardent straight out whig connected with the police department of our place and the others were divided to tween two other gentlemen the most of Thein being for a gentleman who has served Tho town ably and acceptably in the legislature. This gentleman would probably have received the nomination had not Tho straight out masses spoiled All Good calculations by voting in such Way As might Poos Bly result in giving an Active police officer business in another direction the coming win Ter. The meeting to understand after la Boring in Vuin to get at the result of the bal lot adjourned to this evening. To Havo been trying to deduce a moral from Obeso proceedings and it is this put not your Trust in the masses or if you should Don t forget to logo Tho veto Power somewhere. So that Tho impudent action of Tho Nassea in overturning the Best Luid Plana May be frustrated if necessary the following letter Wos published in the daily slate of Maine of sept. 7. 1854. It exp ins some of the circumstances connected with the calling of the Biddeford convention. Buleford sept. 5, 1854. John a. Pool Esq. Dear sir i wish to Avail myself of the columns of the " slate of Maine to Cor rect some Norcis apprehensions that seem to exist in Portland relative to the circumstance connected with the Call and holding of the anti Nebia a convention held in thin place the 9th of August. I have sought thu source of communicating with the Public because i have noticed that he slate of Maine a Oil several occasion contained editorial article founded on my apprehensions of the fact and calculated to give wrong Impre Wions to the Community. The Art it Ion to which i allude have placed the responsibility of calling the con. Ven Liou on Persona who had Little or nothing to do with it and we o were not consulted at All previous to the opening of the Call and As i conceive very Anjum and erroneous inferences have been made because the persons to whom i allude Are found supporting the nominee of that convention. I am perhaps As fully acquainted with the fact connected with the holding of the Bidi Leford convention As any Ter on in the District and it is this which induces me to ask the a of your columns for the Correo lion of the which have been referred to. It a unnecessary to speak of the feeling which existed in the whig stale Donven lion in favor of i practical Union of the anti Nebraska men in the stale in the election of members of Congress. You lad i were in favor of such Union Tod the sentiment of Ihu convention found expression in the Pawnee of an appropriate Reso Lution recommending Auch Union. In relation to the first Congre Simiona District the subject of a Maui convention of All the opponents of the Nebraska Bui was agitated on the Day the whig slate convention was held. I myself personally conferred with Yon relative to the expediency of the matter and you Moat willingly gave your approval. There was no formal meeting of the delegates but the most intelligent whig of the District like yourself approved of the measure and desired me to prepare the Call at Tho proper time. The Call alter this general consultation was prepared by myself printed in my of fice and copies of it sent to anti Nebraska men in the District. I personally addressed one to you and promised myself that you would in accordance Wilh the declaration of your eloquent speech in the convention exert yourself to the utmost to redeem the District from the reproach which had been cast upon it by the speech and vote of or. Mcdonald. I am not aware that you Ever noticed the receipt of the Call and i do not find your name among the twelve Hund rett Pei sous whose names ure borne on the copies returned to m office. It is due to frankness to say that where the Calls were sent out they were sent to individuals of All parties opposed to the re peal or the and in the expectation arid ale Jioje that the meow or would receive As it did the cordial approval of All poll incl organisations opposed to the principles or the Nebraska Hill. And i is also due 10 truth to say that while the initiatory proceedings Weie in a measure confined to the party to which you and 1 Are attached still no complaint has been made As i am aware by other parties on that account. The Only feeling which seem to exist against the convention is found in your City and among men who like yourself were either gift dually con suited or were Swift to approve the policy adopted by the whiff slate convention under which the Biddeford meeting was held. I am not aware that any fault can be found with the result of the Biddeford convention growing out of any Teal or sup a Vitious agreements Between men of differ ent parties which connected themselves with Oiler in Attis having reference to the state election. In such agreements Weie to my knowledge made and i am entirely sure thai neither or. Willey or. Peck or Cater and others whose names have been mentioned in the slate of Maine in connection with these agreements Are obnoxious to the changes which have been made against them. To my mind such intimations impeach the judgement of the intelligent men who composed the convention and Are entirely unsuitable the be made by any one and would hardly come idiom any unprejudiced in ind or from any sincere arid reliable anti Nebraska Man at this time when the great object of All in the District should be Union for the purpose of relieving our selves from odium and responsibility which attaches to the people of in con sequence of the speeches and votes of ils representative in Congress in favor of re pealing the restriction Winch would if let alone have prevented the further spread and Extension of slavery. Yours truly Louis 0. Cowan. Wildcat fusions. We did nut intimate last week without sufficient cause that there Wero la Lasures in Progress throughout the s ate for coalitions Between whigs of a certain stump and wild cat democrats to elect men to the legislature who would vote to Send to the Senate the numbs of Reed and Parris instead of bleed und Morrill. We have this week prior confirmatory of the fact. The Wildcat democrats Ana the whips who prefer the Haz Sard of electing Parris to the certainty of electing in anti Nebraska Man with Decla rations upon their lips Ngu inst " fusions Uro trying to use with Ull their might. To caution All sincere anti Nebraska whigs and friends to the Maine Law Agnini such fun Sioni. The whigs who Are noting thus if sincere opponent to the Nebraska men put up their principles in the Market and nine chances out of ten they will find themselves sold to Albion k. Parkis. The Only safety is in voting for men who will Rote to Send up to the Senuto read and Morrill. The Crafty Wildcat Loco Foco politicians who Promise to support whigs nominated in exclusive caucuses know very Well that they Are getting their grist ground in whig hoppers. Sent the wrong Man. Edward Knapp of Suco one of Tho first Days of the week called on Milli Ken e�q., who lives in the upper Par of Saco and is a prominent Democrat there and a political conversation ensued Between them to the following effect or. Stevens said that the regular democratic leaders in the Village had concluded to have no nominations Lor town representative that they had assurances from the friends of Gen. Boyd that if the democracy would vote for him. That he would vote to Send the name of Reed and Partis to the Senate and that things had been arranged by the Atwoil out whips in connection with the regulars to bring about the nomination of Gen. Boyd for this Pur pose. This conversation was held in the presence of a son of Dea. Appleton of bus ton who is our informant. Or. Appleton Saya that or. Milliken endeavoured to pre vent or. Knapp from telling the whole Story in his presence Bat or. Knapp could not to understand that he should not open the plan in the presence of Atran Gera. In connection with this Mailer we would stale that we know that Wildcat demo Erata were consulted in relation to the manner in which the caucus should be called in a co and thai it waa arranged that the caucus should be called so a to Cut off the probability of the nomination of a whig who would in no contingency Vole to and the name of Parris to the scuttle. The Wildcat de Mccratic lawyers think they have or ranged matters to a to Hare Aid in filling the senatorial vacancies by polling in Thomaa m. Hayes and his associates in the Senate. The 4 regular Nebraska ticket should be careful not to Send runners to their friends to disclose their plan who cannot take he hint. They should be care Ful to whom they commit the knowledge of their fusion " Plana. It i ticklish times and when men talk out their plans in the presence of persons who Are under no obligation to keep Vliem silent their plans will undoubtedly leak out. People s canons Biddeford. A i a Rye number of41 the Legal voters of Biddeford opposed to the election of Albi on k.

The death of or. James Smith jr., which is appropriately noticed in our obituary list will prove a great loss to our place. Or. Smith was among our most enterprising and useful citizens. Although of a somewhat impulsive , he was a Man of Large heart and endowed with generous and Manly traits of character which bound him in the ties of Friendship to a Large Circle of Friend. He was one of our Kostac ii and influential men Public spirited and ready at All times to secure any project to Subserve the pecuniary interests or promote the so Cial welfare of our place. Or. Smith was u member of charitable associations and has Long been connected with our fire de part men i As o be of its Mot energetic Mem Bers. His funeral which took place on sunday from the congregational Church was attended by the fire department and the several societies of which he was a member and a Large number of his fellow citizens of Saco and Biddeford. Look to yours allots. Voles have been prepared and sent into various parts of the county with the name of Joseph 11. Gilpatrick As county com missioner All Tho lost of the ballot contains the names of the whig candidates. Or. Gilpatrick is not the candidate nominated by the whigs. The whig convention voted with but one dissenting voice to nominate Cotton bean of Limerick who will Alt o be supported by the Morrill and free soil men. These spurious ballots come from men who think More of the element of liberalism in politics than they do of the real interests of the county. Look to your ballots vote for Cotton bean for county commissioner and for no other mail for that office. Mark this. Political affairs in Maine. We Are Luppy to have Tho Assurance of the editor of Tho Portland Hlat Chstr thut any regular whig nomination will t e Viado for Congress in opposition to or. Wood in the tint District. From a Frt Onui knowl Edge of the feeling or some of the whig of Portland we had reason to fear thut the formation of a coalition county ticket would bring about Euloh a result. Any deviation of Onti ment among the anti Nebraska men in Mcdonald s District is certainly to he . The eyes of Ull new England ure tuned to that District and we sincerely Hope thai All merely personal feelings und Breiu ices among the whigs Anu anti men will be merged into the one pervade re a Nii ment of retaking the act of perfidy committed by the present representative Iroku that District. There is no bet Ter Means of uttering that rebuke than by defeating the administration Nebraska candidate Lor journal. We Are glad that the journal has at lost come to a right understanding of the True position of Maine politics. Its article to which the advertiser so ably replied to was indiscreet and calculated to injure the oppo nets of the National administration to this state. It is not infrequently the Case that the Boston papers by assuming to give direction to the movements of the whigs of Maine injure rather than Subserve the cause which they Are Labouring to Advance ind we were gratified to see the advertiser calmly telling the Boston papers thai they would be better employed in looking alter their own matters at Home than in prescribing courses of action fur the whip to Maine. Fur ourselves we have had frequent occasion to Noi Ioe this unwise spirit of inter Ference of a certain stamp of Massachusetts whigs though we must relieve the Boston journal from general Oen Enre in this matter Irith the politics of Maine and which met with so timely a rebuke from the advertiser. Some of the Tuitoo w i papers have for Many Yeara seemed to regard themselves a Baring been coast Ito so the political Ruardi Ana of the people of Maine and have Evin ced altogether too much of the spirit of meddling . Many of the people of Maine Are beginning to think themselves Able to get along without Thia meddlesome guardianship and the Wunt of Success which these self constituted guardians Hare had in the management of their own Houe political Uff tirs have very Little Confidence in their Wisdom and discretion. The Boston journal dict Soma Oil in ten lion to dictate to the whigs of Maine and we have no idea but that Ita disclaimer a sincere. There Are other papers however in Boston claiming to tie whig to Hare frequently assumed to direct the whigs of our state but we Are Hupps to know that the a Hijra Here have never supposed themselves under obligations to follow the dictation of such papers and hate generally taken coun Sel among themselves and followed their own judgement rather than he to Naela of men who have Learned their reasons of humanity from state Street brokers and their ideas of politics amid the splendor of Beacon Street drawing rooms.

It would be a virtual Triumph of the National administration in Maine and a Resuli deeply to in deplored. We have been sincere Earnest opponent of the Nebraska plotters from the commencement. We know their chd meters they cannot be trusted and we shall not tru to them or tote for men no matter How honest they May lie or Well qualified for Public station who h ave such Iii Imis Mictl Najj Nai Urva to plus Slivin selves in position to Ite under obligations to them. We have Home opportunities for studying the Chancie propensities mid Aims of the wild Cut politicians of the state. We know something of the circus lances which Inual surround a re i tentative if there is no Choice for governor. We know that the genuine whig feeling of this state bus nothing to Hope for from the wild cats that or. Heed a chances to i made governor must be weakened rather than strengthened by affiliations or fusions with them and we shall not our selves be found Labouring by the Side of men whom we know will under specious pretences of Friend ship Deal most fatally the blow of the Assassin. There is a Little song entitled the spider and the Fly a pretty Little one it is. It has Lieen Sung to our Halls. The spider with honed accents invited the misting foolish Fly into his parlor the Fly accepts the Silken threads Are soft but they Art Strong enough to hold him and he becomes the prey of the spider. The moral is easily deduced. We shall walk into no Loco Foco parlor however prettily it May be furnished. Other whigs May accept the invitation but they must Lake the con sequences with these Reu irks we dismiss this question. Was he running away from the Chile rat after advising the whig of Saco not to attend the caucus cull four Stute that prominent if not the most prominent part of their Creed in 1849, Wae to oppose the spread of slavery into the new and old territories of the United states. I see that now the same party is in favor of letting Lavory into those free territories. Ilow it a i this is the dem Cratie party now a different party from that of 1849 ? i cannot conceive of this. I Ienuso i see that the same men who led off then Lead off now. Nof am i aware that the leaders of the party have proclaimed in any Way or manner what Ever any change or sentiment or shown any change in their principles by their conduct since 1849, till the present Iuie nor now do they give any reasons for doing so. It 1 seems then that Thev have faced " to Tea right about and ordered their followers to do so without assigning any eau. Now or. Editor As always one of the regulars 1 wish to know Why our Leitera exit a to he so inconsistent As to eat our own senti ments As expressed in 1849 and since and now do exactly the cent rare to what we then did the re Waag a reason for Reia ing the spread of slavery then and he suis reason any. I think but str car resisting it now. It is a blighting curse where it exist like our Puro Hing drouth Ami Why spread it Over the whole land ? i was opposed to it in 1849 i mean to be c Distant and Opp Nae it in 1854 by my vote Rego Lar " or no regular realty or tin realty to in con i tent and unprincipled leaders f once in 1822 or 1823.

I Hui told that in � Large religious meeting in Saco about two year Ngo Tiit he Laid he had Dune he of.
