The abolition convention. Tho fusion abolition gathering at India aporia hat Friday Hangman s Day was Lar o one made a however mainly of Tho people of Tho towns and cities on Tho lines of the numerous railways now leading to that City. It is an easy matter now a Days to get up a Large meeting at Indianapolis Public occasion and particularly Tho sort of crowd present on that occasion for while Tho formers arc in their Fields Busy gathering their Harvest the town people Are necessarily Idle and glad of an Opportunity to have a pleasure is cursing or frolic on Tho railroads at half Price or no Price at All. This is the Way this meeting was gotten up. The representation embraced but a Small portion of the state and it is scarcely known there was such a meeting among the working men of the country. Though it numbered its thousands and though what they termed their a proceedings passed Oft with great a Union and Harmony a yet we never saw a crowd show less evidences of life spirit and Resolution. Their resolutions were adopted As a matter of course without one in fifth knowing or caring what they wore and the speeches foil Flat and stale ear. They did however what their leaders intended and what All might have known they would do used upon an abolition prohibitory liquor Law platform. The meeting was essentially and distinctly abolition. All former disguises and covers vre pretty much abandoned. Their banners their speeches and their resolutions Uli look Jed steadfastly in that direction. Their main peaker was Wilson of Massachusetts to Vas imported All the Way from Boston on purpose to about ionic them. To is the newly elected senator by Tho notorious abolition know nothing legislature of Massachusetts and is All Over on this subject one of the Moat Ultra men in the nation. He seemed to regard the entire demonstration before him in us via proper Igov that of on it atoll of wednesday Ostli too Lato to hear the Asogu Reiou address of president com hut during the Progress of Tho graduating exercises of Tho Law department. Only three of the graduates mess. T. W. Bennett of Wayne county and James a. awl Motte of Greencastle were present on the occasion. Tho speeches de Liford by those Young gentlemen embraced Many matter of fact which possessed the Crew it of genuineness if not of Novelty although nil bore inexcusable Marks of Hasta and the consequent evidence of imperfection of composition. Taking or. Claw us s oration As a Standard of to Man we should judge him to to possessed of some it character and much originality of intellect. Let him Fea Rossly launch his talk upon tie untried Ocean of re life and Trust for his support to Tho god sent impulses of his own a intellect and he will Rido Tho raging Waves and reach without ship wreck the Haven of a reasonable and laudable ambition. On thursday evening the philological society was addressed by another at Amonson the institution our Young fellow citizen or. J. A talk Egton. The speaker discussed his. Subject Quot our political conscience a in masterly manner dealing Herculian blows where the Iron Mettle of fact afforded him theme and painting in Rainbow tints with the Pencil of an artiste Tho objects of living a thought brought into existence through a vivid and Well educated imagination. Or. Takki Hoton controls a Rich voice a Correct a modulation and an elegant gesture. He beyond doubt is the making of one of the prominent orators of the state of Indiana. The Coheh Cement exercises proper were undergone during the Forenoon of thursday the 19th inst.

Wars son esq., of wave land the valedictory was delivered by or. Patterson Mcnutt of Posey Hills. A the writer is half disposed to slightly. Criticise Tho performances we would not unnecessarily wound sensitive feelings of the Young gentlemen just emerging from the sacred Halls of teaming with their a blushing honors thick. Upon them a and could with Moi mid Comfort pass them by with a Little faint Waist than attempt to impress upon their mind an old Maxim which the faculty should have taught them and Tho Observance of which in the future May prevent the intrusion of Petty sorrows to themselves and disappointments to their friends. Had they remembered that a whatever is Worth doing at Worth doing right a the orations they attempted to delivery that part of the com. Me Cement exercises in which they were sex -1 Pec Tai to display whatever Genius they possessed would at least have been perfectly committed to memory. We listened to no speech within the College Walls which in close consecutive Ness of thought and Force a of reason was such As to justify the expectations we had indulged Yot Many truths Sueie uttered and Many thoughts teeming with the vital essence of Beauty were thrown. In fitful showers upon us bathing the soul with spiritual Dews and giving birth in a moment to those celestial Flowers of the heart whose seed Are found in the divinely inherited and impulsive sentiments of youth. The effect of All however was destroyed and the auditor made painfully conscious of his sub Lunary existence by he freq Nice Atis of the speakers voice in the midst of a picture of Sublimity and the repeated Consul tation of that very material Quot object Tho Over ready manuscript we can scarcely imagine in what Way Tho boasted benefits of the mental discipline cultivated by a Una and arduous study of the latin and greek is to to turned to it practical use if the recipient shall Lack the capacity to hold in his met the substance and Tho words of a Little speech of fifteen minutes duration. Oar remarks Here Are designed to to Glt or a and not to apply particularly and specifically to the graduates at Tho sixteenth com in Icem Potof Tho Asbury University. These a a Young gentlemen we Are told Are men of Talent and excellent scholars. If they have subjected themselves to criticism it is the i suit of timidity perhaps or of inexperience Public speaking and not of incapacity. They received their diplomas with much Grace and Courtesy at the hands of the president Rev. Dahiel Cerner. In conferring the the president gave them his parting. In a Brief but salutary exhortation. To hoped a the lessons they had Learned within Tho College Walls would Bear them in the Humble consciousness of intellectual Power through. Every trial and sustain them in every Emer a gency they were to go Forth to Battle amid the cold uncharitable conflicts of life a they were to come in Contact with Tho Pas prions of error and the prejudice of ignorance. Petit was their province to vindicate the truth a in or and to act rightly spreading about a them wherever they might be the allowing info denies received whilst the goal Pursuit of free or slave Lal incas to do Tho Samo capacity for self go comment As our fellow citizens of the states with a far greater if not an exclusive interest in the institutions a Laws which Aro to exist among us compelled alone to Bear their burdens and entitled alone to claim their benefits Wisdom Justice and fairness would dictate that those Laws and institutions inside of the Constitution of Tho United states should be moulded by ourselves stimulated by the absorbing interest we must feel in them rather than by the representatives or citizens of other states who Are no More competent to the task than we who have no stake with us ii their results and who would most indignantly repel any Oiler of reciprocity from us in assisting to manage their affairs. The provision of territorial organic act right As is founded in Tho True doctrine of republicanism. It May be exercised in various degrees and in various ways and whenever it is called into action it cannot legitimate to attended with that excitement which is incident to Tho agitation of the slavery question in the direction of an attack upon Stith tonal rights. An agitation of that kind such As we have seen industriously prose Tod in the past history of our country by the d Tractive spirit of abolitionism can never be productive of aught but evil and is calculated in an eminent degree to obscure the Glo Ricson the past to evoke the foulest spirit of discord among the citizens of our common country and also to mar our Brilliant future if not to endanger Tho existence of our cherished Union. A want of Fidelity to the solemn compacts of Tho Constitution Aud an attack upon the rights of the states which Are guaranteed by it can have no justification or excuse. This View of Tho Case however i not to be confounded with Tho discussion and settlement of the slavery question in our t Mitory in its bearings upon Tho formation our institutions. That has been referred to us Asan open question by the legitimate Tion of the nation and Here it is not Only the privilege but the duty of every Man to speak his opinions freely and enforce them peace Bly and fairly. Advocate and opponent stand on the same ground and must mutually concede to each other the identical measures of right which they claim for themselves. Freedom of opinion and Freedom of discus Sion without licentiousness Are of the very essence of republicanism at All times Are peculiarly to to respected Here. The permanent character and High authority of a state Constitution and the Factor its submission a direct Voto of the people of the territory dictate that event As a signal occasion for the decision of the Peculiar question. In the meantime however a territorial legislature May undoubtedly act upon Tho question to a limited and partial extent and May temporarily prohibit tolerate or regulate slavery in the territory and an absolute or modified form with All the Force and effect of any other legislative act binding until repealed by the same Power that enacted it. On the census the governor says a the census of the territory taken under the provisions of the act of Congress exp ilk return of two thousand nine Hundred and four qualified voters and an entire population of eight thousand five Hundred and j Twenty one persons exclusive of indians and i officers soldiers and Tho employees of the i army of the United states not residing in Tho i territory. The census returns which arc submitted for your inspection contain a consider Able amount of statistical information such As the place of emigration Ages occupations Diana oils on the 13th. The last Resolution which relates to naturalization is rather a miscellaneous a bin probably As Strong As could be made under the circumstances taking into that a a same had his Back broken the in before amp a. This Sand is population consists of five thou Hundred and thirty eight males three thousand three Hundred and eighty and three females. And it is a fact worthy Mark As Peculiar to a great extent of this territory that they Aro not As usual collected about one Point or along a Frontier line but Aro dispersed Over a District of More than 15,000square Miles. This state of things although it has its a a conveniences at present is nevertheless Gratifying As it indicates that our territory has Many Points of Strong interest promising an Early do elopement of our resources for the s Iio Sentinel. The Blind Asylum conspiracy. Tho Public have had intimations for Somi time past that a state of trouble and confusion existed in Tho Blind Asylum of the state. The rapid Vicany a know nothing newspaper has been Labouring to prejudice the Public mind with Tho belief that the St Etc superintendent the Rev. Or. Ames had a cud in such Way and m inner in his official capacity As to require his removal. This know Noth ing Sheet has been the willing medium of reiterated attacks upon or. Ames based upon frivolous pretensions that to was unfit to preside Over and manage the interests of the institution. No charge of corruption of mistreatment of dishonesty or of incompetency has been made or sustained against him neither could any such charge have been made in truth or with Justice. Tin whole amount of complaint is Mere grumbling by those who. For sinister and political purposes have for several months set their hearts upon removing or. Ames by misrepresentation and false clamor. The honest truth is that the politics of or. Ames does not suit a certain clique who hover about and around Indianapolis and several of whom desire to fill his there Are men engaged in this pitiful undertaking Whoso souls and motives Are alone measured by the value of a cent or the gratification of a Low political and Persona malice. I speak knowingly when i assert that one of the teachers in the institution who is a know nothing in politics and a base hypocrite in religious profession has been fur a Long time clandestinely attempting to prejudice the minds of a portion of the students against or. Ames lie has filled them with unfavourable impressions and has used As his i auxiliaries know nothing influences per Sonal persuasions unjust and false aspersions and a studied system of treachery and de-1 cent. I there Are other men holding in some in a stances High and responsible official positions who have Lalord in this same nefarious business and who have advised and counselled the attempt to get up dissatisfaction among Tho pupils of the Asylum. Even those who profess to be ministers of the gospel of Christ have urged Mutiny and disobedience in the school for the avowed purpose of Getling up a muss whereby Public so Mikity Ini it be invoked in behalf of their misguided and misdirected dupes. Pupils in 4he institution have been instructed by their know nothing teacher or. Loss that they were entitled to All the privileges and political rights of citizens of the county and City and have been led to the polls attended by this same loss with tick ets prepared for them to vote against the democrats of the City. Sixteen of them were thus presented at the Lasto Lection for mayor and their votes were properly refused by .1 thu Coburn esq., As being illegal although they would have voted the same kind of a ticket hich or. C. Himself voted or. Coburn big a fusion St. This instance is Given to show the malign iffy off Len Finel. Monday Jook Misti july yi�55. 03-Tho state Sentinel says perhaps with a Little nearer approximation to the truth than is Tho custom of that journal that the invisible machinery of know Noti ingims governed the Republican party of 1854, Ami that the Samo machinery is destined to control that Samo party in Tho canvass of 185g.�? and we May add for their encouragement that just As Suro As of Ime ism was knocked into fits m 1854, just so sure will they be a in fifty six. Routed horse foot and drag Neil Albany tril utne. It will be seen from Tho above that or. A Keno acknowledges that the invisible machinery of know Noti ingims controlled the party of 1854, and that the chicanery is to govern the same party in the canvass of 1856. To wish our readers to stick it pin at this Point. The deduction drawn by the Tribune is by Means a Pla Siblo one. In the Economy of nature and in mathematics like causes said to produce like effects. This Rule however is not a Good or a Correct. Politics. The fact that a set of broken Down partizan Hacks the forlorn monuments of off demoralized but once hopeful.

A Kiel Lesii Buffalo express of the 17th, gives an account of six persons being burned to death in Brant near that City. The facts elicited at the Cornora a inquest Lead to the suspicion that the wretch who applied the Torch was none other Thau the husband of one of the victims and the father of two Little girls who perished in the i what punishment id adequate to so hellish a until the Stato Board of Anstres ,10nm c Veno at us regular session. Before this Board the whole budget of those complaints were paraded and elucidated by Ono whom they had chosen As their advocate and mouthpiece. The removal of or. Ames was proved for his dereliction of duty Wero All set Forth in High colouring. His unfitness was ured upon Tho trustees. They examined All the evidences and deliberated upon the question and they finally settled Tho same by sustaining or. Ames with Only 0110 dissenting vote out of the six trustees and that Ose vote was the puny Effort of a Fasi Onist and he was even too tender tooted to give any direct vote or. Ames. The Board of trustees convened Here on Kiihn Lith Iii Trifid took full 1-�110 1 no the grievances of these conspirators and decided fully and and flatly against no sooner Are the Board gone to their Homes than rank insubordination and Mutiny is manifested and in aimed by loss and his dupes and the people of the state Are implored to redress their complaints and terrible grievances. Who can look upon Tho course of these deluded persons without marking their motives and without pitying that Moas no of mind which would prompt the break ing up of that Harmony and peace which have Ever hitherto characterized Tho condition of our invaluable state asylums. The instigators of such treason Mutiny and disturbance must meet a fearful responsibility and Hosa and his confederates must Bear a shame and the disgrace. There is nothing or charged in the foregoing remarks but what can be maintained by positive proof and there is much More t May be said that will startle the com nity and draw Public attention to some a who now think they Aro covered by a in which will not be removed. Let them not deceive themselves. Neither their professions or their High places will shield them. Plain truth. Tun True Richmond in queer in opposing the scheme of a Southern party says a we firmly belie to that the democratic party As now composed and organised is adequate and ready to secure to the North and the South the East and the West the peaceful enjoyment of their several right and immunities. The rank Aud Filo of the party was never firmer truer or they but Pierce 1850. Quot the question is How Are we to defeat the administration i he american party Alouf can to do it. The anti slavery party alone it too weak. They Are few in numbers though their policy i believe will yet be impressed i it on this country. But the time is not yet i Hope to see the Tho Day when to shall have in new England and in All the country a common Union upon a common platform of All the friends of Freedom. And when the it will when the Breed of do ngh faces Lias been exterminated when we present a United front to the South upon a National and Liberal basis we shall it blk and Liberal men in the South who will meet tis fairly and rest it act our rights and give a new impulse to emancipation in the South. We must not quarrel Ahmit Nice shades of words. We want to de and once Defeated the Battle will be ended forever. Establish the fact that Tho Power is not invincible and the Republic passes out of the hands of an oligarchy and is the above is Clear Frank and he stops not to disburse his ultimate Aims but tells them a the time is not yet a when the a anti slavery party can effect them. The democracy is yet too Strong for it too Strong for the Quot american party a too Strong for Tho whigs a the whig party lives Only in history a too Strong for any other party it must lie done by a Union of All of last year and Tkv pcs then what Why icing United upon a a a National and lib Crai basis a they need not Stop at Nebraska nor even at the District of Columbia nor vet at the other Terri topics nor at the repeal of the fugitive slave Law no not at All of these subjects dangerous suicidal fatal to the Union All know them to be but they Quot must c new to emancipation in this w senator Wilson a nationality these Are his objects and Aims this is what i10 wants a Union for and this Union they say is effected. Of a piece with Wilson a speech wore All the proceedings of the convention. Among the chief actors were Cravens Ilar Ding and other leading and Ultra abolitionists of the Stato. Abolitionism was the engrossing topic of the Day. The Pope was scarcely mentioned or referred to he has t half As Many horns on him As he Hail last year and As foreigners Lioy Are not afraid of them any longer at All they Only want to alter our state Constitution so that they May not vote i until they Are naturalized. I piece with this convention i9 the action of the fusion part in Ohio at Columbus on the same Day there they nominated Salmon p. Chase for governor a other noted notorious and ont and out abolitionist. Verily Tho old whigs arc coming to a pretty pass to be office red by such came As Chase and Wilson. What say you old whigs of Kush will you endorse this foul conspiracy Aro you willing to be told to your Teeth by such men that your once proud party a now lives Only in history a and that you can do nothing without coalescing Aye not merely Roa Lesing either but being merged into a naked abolition party and proscription of catholics is ignored an 1 of foreigners almost forgotten. The wbk Ogitis came in principle with them is a matter of no consequence. The n. Y. Herald says that the split will event Auto in the Benefit of the tricksters.

C. Larrabee. Whilst in Greencastle during a couple of j Days of the past week we were most hospitably Aud delightfully entertained at the residence of our Lato state superintendent of Public instruction. It has never been our happiness to behold a More Rural or Beautiful spot of Earth than the grounds which for years have received the culturing care of the Leisure moments of our old Friend. Nature is there imitated perfection of artistic carelessness where Tho Inspirit ing freshness of the primeval Forest throws on All around its allowing influence. With a Homo like his we do not wonder i that prof. Larrabee should decline As he has i done to accept any of Tho Many conspicuous places tendered him in several state universities and prefer rather As he docs to recline during Tho balance of his Days within his Moss grown Rosa Bower there to abandon himself to those literary pursuits so congenial to his nature. He will run out the Sands of his life in the Home of the thirty years of his manhood retired from the angry contentions of the world and surround by the liar Houious works his own creation. It is not in the Power however of professor Laurabee to be Idle. Lie has already progressed to some extent with several literary works which will at some future Day appear before the Public. A proposition has been extended him by an Eastern publisher and which he May accept to write also the life of Tiresias . Such a work so much needed at this juncture of our history from the pen of a Man of prof refined i literary taste and accomplishments will be looked for with Peculiar interest and rc-1 Cei Ved with a Hearty Welcome.

We had the pleasure of attending a very pleasant re Union of Tho democracy in far me Reviue on saturday last the attendance was Large and the most entire Harmony seamed to prevail. From Thiec to five bundled persons were on the ground and among them we were Happy to observe Many Gray haired men the patriarchs of the neighbourhood the Bell Wethers of the flock. This was a truly Gratifying circumstance for the Creed of democracy is the Creed of our fathers and in defending and spreading it we Are defending and spreading Tho opinions of the Wise old men of the past. Franklin township Borders a it on the Shelby county line and among those comm�sin-4 Tho meeting Wero. A number from moral township in that county. About l of clock a procession of one Hundred arrived at Farmersville from pleasant View with martial music and the stars and stripes flying. This Banner was carried by that old wheel horse of democracy r. M. A Duvall and bore Tho following inscription a the Constitution and the in opposition to political Tho procession was marshalled by Thomas Holden a gentleman who last year voted the fusion ticket but is now battling with the democracy. The Church not being Large enough to hold Tho crowd they form cd into procession and marched to a Beautiful Grove a hero they were addressed by lieutenant governor Wil Laid governor Wright and our county clerk we. Stewart. A gov. Werli Ann s speech was one of the Ablest we have had the pleasure orig teming to Formant a Day and dung Ivro amp a tuft 0 h6uw lis1comnlatethhe us fed Nutoni Tho masses present. Some portions of his address were truly eloquent and Tho pure democratic truths As they fell from his lips Sank deep in the hearts of his bearers. Or. W. Said those who composed the convention of Tho 13th of july 1854, As Well As the convention of this year Wero abolitionists know nothings and the disappointed politicians of All parties. They Mado an Issue against the democratic party on the Kansas Nebraska Bill. Or. Willard then proceeded to discuss Al length Tho merits of this Bill. There was but great question now before the american ale and that was whether Congress should to made Tho Field for contest upon slavery or whether the people of Tho territories should theselve3 be permitted to discuss and Settle All questions affecting their own Domestic affairs. National men of All parties should unite in opposition of sectional ism. Fie said that Tho Missouri Compromise was a measure forced by the North upon Tho South but two senators from those states voting for it. But aside from this geographical questions were wrong and should always be discounts Nan cd. Gov. Willard then briefly alluded to the dangerous tendencies of secret political parties and took occasion to handle the know nothings without gloves. From Tho squirm two of the dark lantern order present who Mado their grievances known by Low muttering of discontent we should judge that this portion of his speech was very affect gov. Wrights speech was thoroughly National in its whole Honor and just such a speech As it was fitting for the chief executive of Indiana to make. A the Union the whole Union and nothing but the Union in its Burden. Bespoke of Tho conservative and honorable position which Indiana had occupied As a sort of moral break water against the tide of new England fanaticism and exhorted her citizens not to permit her to fall from her High estate. Lie enlarged on the dangers of sectional ism and of the War of races and religion and quoted the memorable words of or. .1 Kkt Tehson a a this momentous question like a fire Bell in the night awakened and filled me with terror. I considered it As the Knell of the Union. It is hushed indeed for a moment but this is a reprieve Only not the final sen Tynce. A geographical line pm Ici toil with a Markul principle moral Ami political Cei Ved and held up to the angry Pastin will never be obliterated and every new irritation will Mark it deeper and memorable words worthy to be engraved in letters of living Light on every american heart As a warning from Tho grave by the author of the declaration of Independence. The governor s remarks were interspersed with several pleasant anecdotes which made the smiles Mantle of the faces of his attentive listeners. The meeting closed with a delightful talk of half an hour from Willuam St want full of Good humor Aud shrew Dueis which made i the few know nothings who were present relax from their Gravity. I the visitors from Indianapolis were hospitably Ente trained by James a. or. 31. Joyce Truo hearted genial gentlemen. After a ride of Twenty minutes in to we found ourselves again in our Sanctum at line in the evening feeling like a Good Democrat and a Good Christian ready for sunday double pealing. The following paragraph from Tho new Albany Tribune contrasted with the editorials of Tho journal of this City will exhibit the political trickery of Tho fusion party in a very striking manner. Honesty forbids us to use a Milder term than trickery although we mean no of Tunco to the gentlemen who prepared the resolutions. The journal is of opinion that there is no essential difference Between the Ohio and Indiana platforms and this is a Correct View of the Kuljeet when All the attendant circumstances arc taken into consideration. The spirit of the fusion convention was the spirit of fanatical and Radical tin speeches the. Banners Tho presence of Ikin us , the whole tone and Tenor of the proceedings prove that Tho views of Salmon i. Chase and his co adj tors there those of this meet us but it was necessary to conciliate certain voters who would not go beyond a a the Torai Ion of the Missouri Compromise a and therefore this phrase was inserted. In order to show the duplicity of these wire Dworkow we will republish Tho Indiana Republican platform in connection with the remarks of or. Grf Dkl Here is the platform a resolved that to Are uncompromisingly opposed to the Extension of slavery and further that to utterly repudiate the plate form of principles adopted by the set styled democratic convention on the 24th Day of May 1854. Endorsing and approving the Kansas nah Jaffka iniquity. 11 if Croner that we will waive All former party predilections and in concert by All lawful Means seek to place every Branch of Federal government in the hands of wider Rill a Tetu Sion of slavery. It resolved further that our revolutionary ancestors regarded Freedom of National and slavery As sectional. That we will steady lastly adhere to their policy and firmly resist every attempt to reverse it,�1 the new Albany Tribune says. A the Indiana state Sentinel is quite Correct in saying that the restoration of the Missouri Compromise is the important Point contended for in Tho platform of the Republican party in this state As adopted on the 13th inst. The Ohio platform differs from ours in that does not insist upon a restoration of the Missouri Compromise but simply declares against the increase of slave territory and the admission of any Moro slave states into the with All our Low. Of Freedom and hatred of slavery we never could be induced to stand upon such a platform As that Quot the Sentinel never said that the Compromise was a the important Point contended on the contrary we belie to it was slipped in As a single phrase surrounded by a Host of High sounding generalities or tax purest of let Eity overlooked amp fat by certain poll is Whoso in tells Wund be promoted by fishing it up As occasion might require. It cannot be doubted that an honest re Torani of Tho Compromise implies the Permis it a of slaver South of Tho line. But Tho convention had to intention of giving coun Neo to this construction because they Are careful to omit Tho Woitas a into territory secured to Freedom by that Compromise Quot which were in the platform of 1854, after the did a Extension of Here is the Resolution of 1854. Tho words italicized arc omitted our readers will por-5 in Tho platform of this year very significant omissions As it Bot Okens the predominance of Tho abolition feeling in the convention. I Fri off. That to will waive All former party pro a elections and in concert by All lawful Means seek to place every Branch of Tho Federal government in Tho hands of men who will assert Tho rights of Freedom restore the Missouri Compromise and refuse under All circumstances to tolerate Tho Etc nation of slavery into territories secur amp a to Freedom by that Compromise. What does Tho journal say to or. Gneao�?T8 interpretation the journal will not answer us except by squibs will it answer Gie of Otlie journal has evidently been very much annoyed by the term a dumb Oracle a a which we applied to it some time ago. That the Dart rankles is plainly shown by its impotent attempts to turn the phrase against ourselves. Before Tho convention our neighbors had it in their Power to repel the charge but their course since that abolition assemblage has precluded them from denying our accusation of silent imbecility. They say nothing of their own views Tami Content themselves with asking us a if to think slavery is right morally and i politically and in Accord with the principles of but these questions have been anticipated by us and answered in Advance. Several Days before the meeting of the convention to published a Long extract from or. Clays Mendenhall speech for the Especial edification of Tho journal Aud recommended Tho whole speech to their careful. Re perusal and stated that it expressed our Newcastle and j opinions on the subject of slavery in its moral i a Al r political my Christian aspect far better than the contract for this Road from its intersection with the Bill Fontaino Road to Tho Wabash River ninety four Miles has been award a to Drake and associates at a Price vary in but Little from the estimate of Cost in in exhibit published last Winter. The contract embraces the Entile construction bal Hist a included Tho company furnishing the m for Tho track Tho work is to to commenced at Covington Between the 1st and 15th of september and will to steadily prosecuted to ita completion. Nothing will be done on Tho divisions East of Crawfordsville until Tho Cash subscription on those divisions is considerably increased for which vigorous efforts will to immediately made along Tho whole length of the journal. Fli Rono provision of Tho new York prohibitory liquor Law to see is actively enforced and there can to no doubt of its Good effect upon Public order and morals. We allude to the prompt arrest and punishment by Fine or imprisonment of All parties found intoxicated in Tho Street. Over fifty a a Ryons Are already under imprisonment for this offence whilst a Stilt larger number have been arrested and fined. Could express them ourselves. We again refer to that speech As Container All we can say and request the journal if it wishes to discuss slavery in the abstract to answer or. Clay. But Tho practical question on which it is the duty of the fusion press to speak is shall the existence of slavery in the territories be prohibited and if so to what extent the position of Tho democratic parly i Well known. They desire no action of con Gross they Aro willing to leave All the Terri tories of the United states open to All lie citizens and to let Tho inhabitants form Suci governments As May suit them without re Striction or condition they Are also ready t Union of the new York democracy. In response to a Resolution passed by a democratic mass meeting held in Hudson new York with a View to United action on the part of Tho democracy of that Stato Tho Albany Argus says a a we do not understand from Tho resolutions that this proposition is put Forth in a dictatorial spirit or with any tenacity on the part of the democrats of Columbia for this particular form of action but Mulier As a suggestion of a practicable Mode of arriving at desired results in relation to which they invite consultation and a comparison of opinion. This is right and we Trust the democrats of the Tato will freely and in a Friendly spirit canvass this and All other propositions for composing strife and re establishing in our state government the Ascendancy of their principles. In due time we doubt not a conciliatory spirit and practical Wisdom will suggest a Mode of action which will rally the whole democracy ii support of a common ticket and to a participation in a common Victory. A was matters now stand looking Only to the 1 action of the conventions which have been called by the two state committees the to scions ability will rest to a great extent on Tho convention which is first to assemble and which must necessarily take Tho if that body can bring itself to act with the magnanimity which and forgetting sectional and family strife place in Suomi nation a ticket formed without regard to past divisions and of candidates who can Rise above past animosities it will give an Earnest of peace and Good will to which the second convention could hardly fail to respond and we May thus in a very quiet yet efficient Way have a practical Union which without mortifying Tho Pridu of either Section of incurring even the suspicion of corrupt bargain in will result in placing our beloved but i governed state under Tho guardianship of honest men and sound executive department Indiana. Indianapolis july 20,1855. To the clerks and other officers of the several cd Maiuro a a a a the supremo court having decided at their late term upon Tho application of Tho clerk of Tho Allen circuit court who was elected at the last general election in october 1854, to the office of clerk of said county to fill the vacancy caused by to death of Tho Lato incumbent that said clerk so elected at the last october election was entitled to said office for the period of four years. By said decision the 7th Section of chapter il5, revised statutes approved May 13, 1852, which reads As follows a that every person Clec cd to fill any office in which a vacancy has occurred shall hold such office for the unexpired term Tho roof a is declared void being in conflict with the provisions of the a institution. Therefore All of slicers provided for in the Constitution elected at the general election in october will be commissioned for Tho full and commission that May have been issued in any officer in your county in cont Liet with this decision will be corrected if returned the office of Secretary of state. You v see that Tho necessary notice is Given for All elections hereafter in pursuance of this Deci wont Swallow the Nigger by Tho following resolutions passed by Tho county Council of k.

N. Organon Vigo county Vigo k. N. Council. At a regular meeting of this co Tecil held on thursday night july 19,1855, the following resolutions were adopted by a majority lacking one vote of being our to one these resolutions it will to seen throw the order upon Thyi original footing As a National party regarding the action of Tho Stato Council As seceding from the original order and the Origi a a purpose for which it was organized they but speak Tho sentiments Ofa Largo majority of the voters of Indiana As time will show. Vav c nope every Council in the state will do likewise a Lorre Baut american. Resolved that while to do not individually it agree with All the opinions and sediments expressed in Tho resolutions adopted by the convention at Philadelphia and might not have considered them As necessary to a National organization of Tho american party yet As they have been adopted by a National convention of Tho Patty to will support the same. Resolved that to Aro heartily tired of excitement and agitation on the sub acct of slavery a that to will by All the just Means in our lower discount Nance the same because it is destructive of the Harmony of the country and dangerous to the Union and that we believe that the organization of our party upon the basis of the resolutions adopted at Philadelphia will More than any thing Elso put a Stop to this excitement and agitation. Resolved that to cannot follow the state Council its actor secession from Tho National Council but Hor by declare a that we will maintain our organization in support of the pm Sciples declared by said National Council. _ Pov Tho Lodlow St amp a messes editors not personally acquainted with either of you yet i deem a a formal introduction unnecessary for Many years past i have renounced my political connection with All political parti Zens for reasons their continued jealousies and War upon each other has induced me to believe that their leading object is not the love of country and at Somo future period they would Render the administration of our several relations Uncertain. I have always found experience to be a Good teacher and by it i am advised that reason has to refer to the past to enable it to come at just conclusions for the future. It is a common sense conclusion that Thero can to no Good derived from unstable governments such As keep up a of faction and revolutions we read of one Oliver Cromwell that gained an Ascendancy Over Tho subjects of England to dissolved their parliament and by Knock trial beheaded their King under the shout of Freedom dubbing his party with the title of republicans and what did his subjects gain by his political scheme and bloody revolution perhaps France has been More Stormy and barbarous in her revolutions than any other nation what has she gained by her inhuman career she is now governed by a Petty tyrant. V / a but we have examples nearer Home South America and Mexico. Mexico has been perpetually distracted by factions political convulsions and revolutions and for years past Alio has been governed by a tyrant so it will to with us if to become the dupes of 2ctional party demagogues. ,. To is vanity to talk about Freedom after we set aside our National Constitution. I have Boon a voter in Indiana for soveral years during which time my attention has occasionally been attracted to read the debates of our most distinguished a statesmen and amongst other things i had the pleasure of Reading the following Resolution passed and approved by Congress in Tho year 1789 a that Congress have a authority to interfere in Tho emancipation of slaves or in the treatment of them within any of. Tho states it remaining with Tho several states to pro. Vide any regulations therein which humanity and Truo policy May this Resolution we any information you May desire Jjon Legal questions will to Given by the actor i a general by writing to him at this place. The attention of the clerks is again called a to act of february 7th, 1855, requiring Tho furnishing to this department the eve Citico of the reception of Tho Laws in Tho eve ral counties j it is Imi Octant that this duty should be admit slave states As promptly As free states i pm aptly attended to. They think the fugitive slave Law a very Rospoch fully yours proper Law and that the abolition of slavery j _ Joseph a.

Of Tho papers that the a fat woman who Lato-1 what nor ,1om the journal ask will i in my in in or for., the officers hero Aro not quite so.

Be sold Eonni a a we ii a. Now gentle tue it appears plausible to me that if Congress had do authority in 1789 to. Interfere with slavery she cannot Havo authority now nor can to to have in forming now states Tho Resolution to which i refer 1 think.1 makes it just As criminal for Congress to dictate to a new state As to despoil an old one give Congress authority to muzzle a new state when it is coming into existence and the same Mie wit Knock the old states into a cocked hat and Rulo our nation entire by a Central dictation. Who Ever heard of slavery As it Vas originally admitted and hold being a test of out Republic ? no Ono i presume until the political leaders of the latter Day saints Aims to chime it in. I Challenge or. Greeley of any other Abo. Lotion editor to place their Finger on Tho Date when or a hero Congress rejected either of our Slavo states up to the year 1820. I am Well aware at this Timo that Many of my old political friends in Indiana for reasons Best known to themselves do not incline to hear to. ,.i doubt whether Thoy would be willing to hear Ono from the dead however i think Thero can to no harm in re iterating to Wise policy of our deceased friends. General Taylor in Tho presidential canvass of 1848, declared to tvs that he has a no enemies to punish a is it so with us now a a no friends to Reward nor has he any political schemes to accomplish if elected he would carryout in full the political doctrines of his first and most illustrious predecessor. Now gentlemen notice his Cordoba tic message of 1850. A preparatory to Tho admission of California Aud new Mexico they will have instituted for themselves Republican forms of government laying their foundations upon such principles and organizing their Powers in such forms As for themselves May soom most Likely to effect their safety Aud a by awaiting this action All causes of uneasiness May to avoided and Confidence and kind feeling observed. With a View of maintaining that Harmony so dear to All we should abstain from the introduction of topics of a sectional character which has hitherto been producing painful agitations in Tho Public mind and 1 to cat to Solamif warning of Tho first and most my predecessors against furnishing any grounds for characterizing parties by geographical gentlemen i Here present you Tho views it an honest statesman and a Truo Patriot in the full sense and one who had often hazarded his life in defence of his country. This portion of Tho presidents message was ably advocated in Congress by messes. Clay Webster Cass and Calhoun up to his last breath whose experience Aud Superior skill As statesman has never been doubted then Why desert them and Tako up with the political dogmas of the state of Massachusetts who has always been unsteady arid disposed to repudiate our National Laws. Massachusetts and other states pretend to say that the whole of Tho recent excitement is Ofori Ngotho passage of Tho Nebraska Bill so called. Now this statement is certainly not Truo for the state of Massachusetts and others were factions before the Nebraska Bill was Over thought of. In 1850, they rejected the fugitive slave Law and Burnt in effigy their most enlightened statesman not that Thoy had anymore sympathy for the unfortunate slaves of Tho South than thy Stato of Indiana no All their rant about slavery is an inv duo desire to comedown upon Tho a Lave states with a fearful vengeance and Rulo them by their own arbitrary dictum. Tho editor of the now York Tribune seems to think to have Only three political parties in Tho states to wit Tho anti Nebraska party pro slavery party and Northern Doug faces.
