We copy the following precious Morceau from the Chicago journal to show the temper and arrogance of those whiff editors who oppose the Republican party and insist on maintaining the old whig organization the Mil.

Although the Senate will consist in the main of the same old fogies and slavery propagandists yet there will be a few addition to the band of men who had the heart and Tho nerve u stand up against the repeal of Freedom s or i wince. Vermont has j tint elected judge Jacob , a in i Tbs t t l advocate of free soil and Kiver and Lunko improvements. At the least calculation the North will have Joor j8senators in the who will be firm of the slavery qty Minn and the admission or leaving n who minority of j6,6 4 Luil Annii. 1 i a d 95.b99 Scott so,�u1 a Viii minority j4,3yd it re then in Trio Throe status we Laid the Whins in u Mir Rity of 50,538. Where then Iivo the Vutci Bueti obtained which have changed this minority of fifty thousand to a majority of n Hundred and fifty thou hindi Thi Chicago Tribune answers this question there in but Mie Ianswer to those questions but it u a Tery imply not self evident one. Tho Victrin Over Ali Iol i Trio whole country Are now rejoicing Are nut whig victories. They were tint won by a Lily prowess nor 8eenred by whig strategy.

Hut equally trim in it that the Battle could not have been won had not the Freen oilers and Tho anti slavery democrats nude sacrifice of their own parties and joined in this crusade not As part inns but a republicans and patriots. With equal propriety might they claim the result of Tho United labors of whigs frees oilers and anti Nebraska democrats As a free soil Vic tory or an anti Zebra aka democratic Victory a for the whigs to claim it a whig Victory. And the new York Tribune of the 16th, in an article on fusion and the future in which it shows that Tho whigs have been shamefully beaten in California in standing on the old National whig platform and that All the Victorius obtained have been the result of partial or Complete Union Speaks thus of new York. If new York fails to show a popular majority against Douglas & co. Of at least one Hundred thousand with a delegation to the nest con Gress substantially unanimous against the Nebraska Bill and its bettors the sole reason will be that the people Are not permitted to Voto distinctly on that Issue. There is no such majority for the whig party if any majority it All but there is As much is you please against Pierce Douglas and their Nebraska doings at the late session if it can Only be permitted to display itself. If St. Lawrence herklraer.&o., vote against us the fault will be our own. And since it in too Lute to make changes in the state ticket we entreat Earnest and Liberal whig opponents of the great iniquity to Manifest to utmost liberality to free democrats and other opponents of slavery Extension in the support of candidates for Congress and the t r Ture.

We do not know How Many there Are until Occa Sions Call them out. We should judge that a majority of those who attended the Republican eau ii in Hie fourth Ward last evening and who controlled Ita action were old line demo unt Many of whom took an Active part in Tho democratic caucus at the Fountain House last Molny unit fail aug to secure their Man Are thoroughly disgusted with the old Hunker party and Ore now going heart and hand for the Republican candidates both delegates to the county convention have formerly acted with Tho Hunker party and or. Chandler Woun de stand fraternize and sympathized with the fugitive slave att prosecutions against us and told tis be regretted very much the decision of judge Smith in our favor. We dont know but republicanism and the fugitive slave act will " mix up Well together but we dont Swallow any such dose. We noticed also our Riend Beecroft acting at the caucus As Busy As a Bee in a tar barrel at he we also at the Hunker caucus at the Fountain House last monday.

At a meeting of the Republican elector of Tho second Ward held at the mansion House on thursday evening oct. 19th. To elect Dele Gates to county and senatorial conventions a. J. Laug Worth was culled to the chair and r. P. Loughton appointed Secretary. Of motion it was resolved to ballot for delegates to county and senatorial conventions when Isaac Neustadtl und b. L. Phelps were elected to attend the county convention and Charles Hepp Wui. Burke r. N. Meszinger Aud win. Caton were elected Del gatos to the senatorial convention. On motion resolved that any delegates who Are Una ble to attend Are authorized to appoint substitutes also resolved to defer the selection of a Candi Date fur ass a Nib by until a future meeting and the Ward committee to Call such meeting at any time they think proper. The Secretary was ordered to publish proceedings in All Republican papers in the City. On motion meeting adjourned. A. J. Langworthy cd n. R. P. Hough Tom Sec y. Iowa co. Republican senator Amasa Cobb. Hollenbeck John this miserable Sham of a Man Rose to Emi Nence like a rocket and a come Down to the ground like the stick. He obtained distinction through the Force of pretension and a now purchased infamy from the Force of truth. He was originally a Mechanic and if he had remained so might Bare still been honorable and honoured but slavery made him a " gentle Man and pretension made him a politician and now when his ambition and pretension have both been exposed he stands before the world As the embodiment of selfish nest and meanness. If worldly Success constituted great Ness this Douglas will be a great Man. He is Rich he sits in the most August Council of the nation and his visible rank a equal with that of the demigods of american Liberty. But the circumstance of Success is not greatness. It u sometimes the result of greatness but it is As often the result of egotistic impertinence. Egotism often perches itself in the chair of greatness but greatness alone can maintain the Royal throne of Eminence. Douglas obtained consideration Iti Illinois through the Force of his own pretension and the Gene rats indulgence of a democratic Community. He hurl been a poor Mechanic and was now though a lawyer Trio bully of poverty and humility he was pushed Forward nut for what he wag but for what he had been and what he pretended to be. He wan sent to the Senate of the United states not because to was fit to Send there but because his simple minded constituents thought he was. Like the Drunken greek poet at the feast Douglas reached the Goat of senatorial dignity while far better and nobler men were not in slight o i t but he Felt at the goal when he gut to it and an indignant people Are now dragging him from it by the heels. To is found put and disgust and condemnation follow him into ignominious oblivion. Douglas is a traitor to Liberty and a mean selfish demagogue. He is in object of disgust and contempt without Tiu Quality of Genius or manhood to invest his descent with by Dittri Buto of admiration. Worcester mass spy.

He is one of the Best members we Hare Ever seen in a legislative body and is always dreaded by those who that to anticipate earnings and receipts a been highly imprudent that an inert in Price of freight arid fares is politic that to dividends be paid until the floating debt is paid that a sinking of Hucl be established to work the funded debt Down gradually and that the pres dont and vice president should give their whole time and attention to the company s aft airs. The future welfare of this important Enterprise depends entirely on the skill and prudence of the present directors.
