The election. It has been justly remarked by someone that a a men perish but principles this truth should to borne in mind by every voter when to approaches the ballot Box on monday next to exercise Tho invaluable right of suffrage and yet another truth should also to remembered and it is his a men Aro nothing principles alone Are everything. The election of Moln next in an important one j All arc so but this is of More than Ordinary consequence. There Are gnat questions at stake a questions affecting the Welfair of the state and nation. Others May and do Appeal to the prejudices of party and in Hack Neveil terms Call upon their followers to go to the polls to support party men and party measures. 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 Tho language of parti fans hip. 1 he conductor of a Public press should have a higher aim than the Mere attainments of parly and be capable of something better than sounding the Bugle of parly. There Are times when the situation of Public affairs May allow of the exercise of simple partizan feeling a when the ship of state is bounding Trail Over 5he Waves and threatened with no danger but when As now she is tempest Tost a sense of common danger should Call for the dismissal of every partizan feeling and Tho 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 slate to show by their voices on monday next that what Ever others May do Maine will not sane lion the Peif ulious 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 slate As quite insignificant in comparison with the mighty one which has been the subject of thought and excitement among the people since a he Pas Sage of the perfidious act which opens up to slavery a territory As fair As Ever the 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 Voten should meet it like what Are the facts 1 should Albion k Parris be elected governor or should the result us mondays work show that he could be in january what a mortifying and Piti ble condition would our state present chained a it would be to the avowed car of slavery the election of Parris would be hailed by the South of 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 Tad ended by the in Owaid event. We Are confident that Pabis cannot be elected by the peo. Pie the danger is that corrupt and unprincipled politicians May by dint of their sagacity in trading overreach 5b� pm a pts Ani thwart their wishes. Fellow citizens you have it in your Power to Avert the danger by voting for such men and such men Only to seats in the legislature a will turn their backs upon the Blandishments of men who place part Izan above the country and voting for such per sons 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 who further spread of the evil of human slavery. A vote Given in any direction which May by any Pola ability make Albion k. Parris governor is a vote in fax or o slavery and an approval of the doing of Congress in adopting the Nebraska twin die. A muss almost. Two caucuses for the nomination of candidates to represent the town in the Legisla Ture have been held in our place this week. The first in order of time was held at Beethoven Hull on tuesday evening and was denominated a Quot Peoples caucus a of anti Nebraska men. Our readers Aro referred to its proceedings published by request in another column for each information As they May need respecting its decisions. We believe that this caucus was Woll attended end entirely harmonious although we Are not sure that its chief result was expected Hyall 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 Tho Back Bone and if elected will probably do the Best he Cun to make anybody governor but Alhyiun k. we believe his sympathies arc with or. Morrill. The second caucus was held on wednesday night assembling under a Call prepared by the whig town committee requesting the whig friends of Isaac Reed to meet and select a candidate. This caucus As Well As the first was numerous by it tended enthusiastic though somewhat unique in its proceedings we learn. Somehow or other a candidate could not be got through it no Hoir. There wins plenty of balloting hut Tho chairman declined to declare the we Uro told that the of Hulunian of the Oom Mitilee 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 contending that Tho vote should lie declared though it evident from his inn tier there was something in the ballot which wins up slut aide to him. In the course of his remarks the doctor who is As Vul but us he is Wordy pitched head and shoulders into the Peoples caucus hold the night before. In the course of the speech the doctor to make n charge of forestalling stick upon the originators of the people caucus declared with great pm Plusik that the Type for their cull was set up u week in our office Lief re the Call was issued and that one of the boys in our office Tohl him so. Now doctor and to address you personally our boys Are very truthful very circumspect in regard to Tho company they keen done to Tell talks out of school except to Greenhorn have their Eye Teeth Cut und never told you any such thing. The cull was printed and posted within two hours after it was handed in and it was a Cash Job. We cure nothing for the erroneous state font you made hut we most defend our office boys from All Mccu Suttons of keeping company with suspicions persons or telling tales out of sch kit a. We leave you to Settle the hash about Tho forestalling with the very respectable gentlemen who signed the cull and a Hull return soon to the doings of the exclusives. As we go in for strict Justice and a in partial records we Are obliged to say that your remarks Wero praiseworthy made in a Good cause received Tho marked approbation of the meeting but is they Fulcd to cure the chairman of his Ohst Nncy and make him a cosime of his duty to declare the result of i it it it tueling they were nil lost notwithstanding Tho refusal of the chairman to declare the ballot its general features have leaked out and this should admonish All who arrange things for the musses not to put their Trust in Leaky vessels. A handsome majority of All the votes were Given so Rumor says for a very ardent straight out whig connected with Tho police department of our place and the others were divided to tween two other raspe Tahlo gentlemen the most of them being for agent Lyman who has served the town uhly and acceptably in the Regis future. This gentleman would probably have received the nomination had not Tho straight out masses spoiled All Good Calcula-1 Lions by voting in such Way As might possibly result in giving an Active police officer business in another direction Tho coming Winter. The meeting to understand after Labouring in Vuin to get at the result of the bal Lut adjourned to this evening. To have been trying to deduce a moral from Obeso proceedings and it is this put not your Trust in the masses or if you should done to forget to Lodge Tho veto Power somewhere so that the impudent action of the masses in overturning the Best Luid plans May be frustrated if necessary. A sentiment of the convention found exp Elsion in the passage of an approp1� re a Lution recommending such Union. In relation to theft rat District the subject of a Mas co Ven a of All the opponents of the Nebraska by was agitated on the Day the m Hig state convention was held. I Mae personally conferred with you relative to the ��p�1 ency of the matter Aud you Roost willingly gave your approval. There was no formal meeting of the delegates but the most intelligent whigs of the Diat vict like yourself it approved of the measure and a less red to to prepare the Call at Tho proper Lime. The Call alter this general consultation was prepared by myself printed in my office and copies of it sent to anti Nebraska men in the District. 1 personally addressed one to you and promised myself that you would in accordance with 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. 1 am not aware that you Ever noticed the receipt of the Call Ami i do not find your name among the twelve Hundred pet sons whose names a re Home on the copies returned to my 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 of the Missouri restriction and in the expectation and ate Boer that the would receive As it did the cordial approve a 0f a a political Organ a rations opposed to the principles of the Nebraska Bill. And i is also due to truth to say that while the initiatory proceedings were in a measure confined to tire party to which you and i Are attached still no complaint has been made As i am aware by other parties on that account. The Only feeling which seems to exist against the convention is found in your City and among men who like yourself were either personally con suited or were Swift to approve rite pol by adopted by the whig state convention under which the Biddeford meeting was held. I Ain not aware that any fault can be found with the result of the bold Eford coir vent Ion growing out of ony real or suppositions. Agreements Between men of differ but parties which connected themselves with other matters having reference to the slate election. No such agreements were to my knowledge made and i am entire a sure that neither or. Willey or. Peck or Cutler and others whose Nyrnes have been mentioned in the state of Maine in connection with these agreements Are obnoxious to the charges which have been made against them. To my mind such intimations impeach the judgement of the intelligent men who composed the convention and Ore entirely unsuitable the be made by arty one and would hardly come any unprejudiced mind or from any sincere and reliable anti Nebraska Man at this time when the great object of All in the District should be Union for the propose of relieving our selves from odium anti responsibility which attaches to the people of this District in con sequent a of Tiro speeches and votes of its 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. I name of Parris to be Senate. The Wildcat dec Ratic lawyer think they have arranged matters so As to have Aid in filling the senatorial vacancies by polling in Thomas m. Hayes and his associates in the Senate the regular a Nebraska ticket should be careful not to Send runners to their friends to disclose their plan who cannot take the hint. They should be careful to whom they commit the knowledge of their Quot fusion a plans. It is ticklish limes and when men talk out their plans in the presence of persons who Aro under no obligation to keep them silent their plans will undoubtedly leak out. People s canons Biddeford.

Secretaries. The following letter was published in the daily slate of Maine of sept. 7. 1854. In explains some of the Circum stances connected with the calling of the Biddeford convention. Biddeford sept. 5, 1854. Join a. Poor dear sir a i wish to Avail myself of the columns of the a a state of Maine a to Correct some is apprehensions that seem to exist in Portland relative to the Circum atan Cea connected with the Call Ami holding of the anti Nebraska convention held in this place the 9th of August. 1 have sought this source of communicating with Tho Public because 1 have noticed that the state of Maine has on several occasions contained editorial article founded on of the facts and calculated to give wrong impressions to the Community. Tho articles to which i allude have placed the responsibility of calling the con. Venetiou on persons who had Little or nothing to do with it and who were not consulted at All previous to the opening of the Call and As i conceive very unjust 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 facts connected with the holding of the Biddeford convention As any it Era on in the District and it is this which induces me to ask the a get of your columns for the correction of the miss prehension which have been referred to. It is unnecessary in speak of the feeling which existed in the whig slate convention in Javor of r practical in of of the anti Nebraska men in the state in the exec too of members of Congreve. You and i were in favor of Xich Union and the Wildcat fusions. We did not inti nto last work without sufficient cause that there Wero measures in Progress throughout the s ate fur coalitions Between whig of a certain stump and wild cat democrats to elect men to Tho legislature who would veto to Send to the Senate the names of Reed and purr a instead of Reed and Morrill. We have this week proof confirmatory of Tho fact. The Wildcat democrats Una the whigs who prefer the Hux turd of electing Parris to the certainty of electing in anti Ohraska Man with declarations upon their lips against Quot fusions a Are trying to Luso with All their might. We caution All sincere anti Nebraska whigs and friends to the mine Law against such fusions. The whigs who Are acting thus if sincere opponents 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. Parris. The Only safety is in voting for men who will Rote to Send up to Tho Senuto a kid und 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. My. Smiths death. The death of or. James Smith jr., which is appropriately noticed in our obituary list will prove a great Luss to our place. Or. Smith was among our most enterprising Ami useful citizens. Although of a somewhat impulsive disposition he was a Inan of Large heart and endowed with generous and Manly trails of character which bound him in the ties of Friendship to a Large Circle of friends he was one of our most no Ite and influential men Public spirited and Rendy it All times to secure any project to Subserve the pecuniary interests or promote the so Cial welfare of our place. Or. Smith was a member of charitable associations and hns Long been connected with our fire de it part men t As o re of its most energetic Mem Bers. His funeral which Touk 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 your ballots. Votes have been prepared and sent into various parts of the county with the name of Joseph h. Gilpatrick As county commissioner All the lost of the ballot contains the names of the whig candidates. Or. Tid Patrick 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 also be supported by the Murri Laud 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 Man fur that office. Mark this Saco ca0cu8e8 Stu scam Nan Esq.

We Laboured to prevent any such untoward event a Fiat occurred and whatever May tube place we share neither tie responsibility of tie Success or failure of either movement. Our ground in Rel tinn to tie Choice of has been unequivocally expressed and we shall vote to carry out the honest convictions we entertain and Quarrell with no inn for pursuing a different course. We cannot vote for s Man who in any contingency will to Likely to contribute in tie a list item a degree to the election of Albion k. Parris for governor should there to no Choice by the people. Our preferences Are for or. Reed first or Morarji next but in to event for or. Pams. We should regard the election of or. P. As pern it iou m the extreme. It would he a virtual Triumph of the National administration in Maine and a result deeply to be deplored. We have been sincere Earnest oppo it Era of the Nebraska plotters from the commencement. We know their characters a they cannot he trusted and we shall not True a them or vote for men no matter How honest they May lie or Well qualified for Public station who h ave such unsuspecting nature a a to Pluck them selves in positions to lie under obligations to them. We have some opportunities for studying the Chancie propensities and Aims of the wild Cut politicians of the state. We know something of the circumstances which must surround a representative if there is no Choice for governor. We Livow that the genuine whig feeling of this slate bus nothing to Hope for from the wild cats that or. Reed t chances to i a made of Vurnor must be weakened rather than strengthened by Atli Leatious or fusions with them and we shall not ourselves 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 or a it is. It has i teen Sung in our Halls. The spider with honed accents invites the trusting foolish Fly into his parlor the Fly accepts the Silken threads Are soft but they Are Strung enough to hold him and he lie comes the prey of the spider. The moral is easily deduced. We shall walk into no Laro Foco parlor however prettily it May be furnished. Other whigs May accept the invitation but they must Lake the consequences with these remarks we dismiss this representative question. Conceive of Tiia. Ziec Nus i see that the mine men who led off then lend off no a Nof am i aware that the Leader of the party have proclaimed inane Way or manner what err and change or int Ament Orehow any change in their principle by their conduct since 1849, till the present time nor now do they give any reasons for doing to it seems then that they have faced to Tho right about a and ordered their followers to do to without assigning any cause. Now or. Editor As always one of the a a regular a i wish to know Why our letters expect us to he so inconsistent at to ent our own sentiments As expressed in 1849 und since and now do exactly the contrary to what we then did the re qua Good reason for Rravis ing the spread of lure by then and he i air Good reason nay. F think better or resisting it now. It is a blighting curse where it exist like our la ironing drouth and Why spread it Over the whole land ? i was opposed to it in 1849 i mean to be Ono in tank and oppose it in 1854 by my Rolo a regular a or no regular realty or in it really to in Conan tent and unprincipled Lender f a meet in 1822 or 1823. Supported Praia with All my might for our second govern Ltd a but them we knew what he was. And where in find him. And be has held honorable and profitable offices Ever since. I Hui told that in a Large religious meeting in Saco about two years ago that he said he had done a he of lice and desired none that the residue of his life he meant to devote to better and id her Pur Mac. But the a regular demo Crata a with his approbation no doubt have taken him it this lain Day for governor again lie does not Tell us where be a on the topics of the Duy nor will i friends suffer him to he questioned. He is kept and suffers himself to be kept in the dark still the leaders know that he is in favor of the Nebraska la and the spread of jul so Loo with judge Wells he is Ulso mute hut his Friend Wilkinson and other friends know that he approves the it Brusby Law. Slavery and All. 1 say or editor no such client be this Lor me. 1 wish to know what i Nui about in voting and i gun atone other democrats of the a old tins do. End that in Hli Ull give our support to Anson p. Morrill for governor on monday neat and j. M. Wini for representative to Congress. They openly now themselves to he utterly oppo de to the diffusion of slavery into on territories und for the restoration of the Missouri Compromise. 11 any one wishes to it know who 1 am you May Tell him and All that 1 urn an a a old Yurk a Republican Llou Andly. Sent the wrong Man. Edward Knapp of Saco one of the first Days of the week called on Milli Ken Esq., who lives in the upper part of Suco and is a prominent Democrat there and a political conversation ensued Between them to the following effect or. Stevens said that the a regular democratic leaders in the Village had con eluded to have no nomination Lor town representative that they had As Auranen from the friends of Gen. Boyd that if the democracy would vote fur him. That a would vote to Send the name of Reed and Parris to the Senate and that things had been arranged by the a troit out whig in connection with the regular a to bring about the nomination of Gen. Boyd for this purpose. Thia conversation was held in the presence of a son of Dea. Appleton of Buxton who is our informant. Or. Appleton Saya that or. Milliken endeavoured to prevent or. Knapp from jelling the whole Story in his presence but or. Knapp could not to under and that he should not open the plan in the presence of Alran Gers. In connection with this matter we would state that we know that Wildcat demo Crata were consulted in relation to the manner in which the Earons should be called in Saco and that in was arranged that the caucus should be called so As to Cut off the probability of the nomination of a whig who with the politics of Maine and which met political affairs in Maine. We Ore Happy to have Tho Assurance of the editor of Tho Portland advertiser that not any regular whig nomination will be a ado for Congress in opposition to or. Wood in the Tinct District. From Pora Onul knowl Edge of the feelings of some of the whigs of Portland we had reason to for that the formation of a coalition county ticket would bring about i ooh a result.
