Forney s press has an article on the Republican platform in in which it is strongly urged that the Willmot proviso doctrine ought to to abandoned and genuine popular sovereignty accepted As More Arctic Abl and More in Accord Ance with lies sentiment of the country at Tho press says we Sec no reason Why the people of Tho North should complain of the practical operation of the thirteen original colonies and it will the establishment of slavery in All the unsettled territories of the Union except those which May be occupied almost exclusively by slave holding Emi Grant and which arc peculiarly adapted to slave labor. It is founded upon the eternal principles of Justice audit will prevail in the it Lias prevailed in the past in spite of All the Mach p Roll y Yle of politicians against it and the bubbles subterfuges hair splitting Tibstra Anions and Fri i Olous pretexts upon which they assail it.

So he said it was with the spectacle before him this is an Appeal to each of you not to Oil but each. Keeping that in View we kind introduce to the Reader a picture whose eyes May be looking on him or if not on him on Many who would it were not so. It is from the Baltimore american and is on the subject of the the gaze of which take our share John Quincy Adams once said that with the single exception of Scotland there was no coun try in the world where the Christion Sabbath Wes i Casally regarded and Lio nored than in this doctrine is the one virtually adopted by Gen. Talob in Iris plan for Dis Pong of the question of slavery in tie territories and recommended in his first message. The tendency of popular opinion is undoubtedly in favor of this policy.
