Land and see Italy cast ten it Gyves Slie wears no More to the Genii s that Steep her old game again successful. From the Philadel Iliia Ai Gus two years ago the regularly nominated candidates of the democracy were stricken Down by the anti Lecompton ites and tiie state Given Over to the opposition. At that time the followers of judge Douglas with professions of honesty to the democratic party upon their lips but with treason in their hearts succeeded in giving the state to the enemy. They have a played again their old game of fraud and deception and the result is an overwhelming defeat of the party. It is Idle it is supremely ridiculous upon the part of the friends of Douglas in this state to attempt to deny that they have produced this result. The Leader of tie Douglas arty in this state John w. Forney used All his influence against Gen. Foster before tiie election and he now exults at his defeat and congratulates the republicans upon their Victory and assures them that Uliey had the support and sympathy of thousands of Good Douglas democrats. The North Ayne rican the leading Black Republican paper of the state abounds in expressions of gratitude not Only to these renegade democrats but to Stephen Arnold Douglas for invaluable services in the Campaign. Evidence accumulates upon evidence from every Quarter of the state of not Only the pre concerted arrangement of the Jiro fessed friends of Douglas for the defeat of Gen. Foster but of their close Alliance and frequent communication with the leaders of the Black Republican party. In some of the election precincts where the Breckinridge element was largely in the Ascendancy or where there was a Clear and Strong democratic majority in the county these men worked silently and secretly while in others where there was a Republican majority they were open and avowed in their opposition and. As if to banish All doubt and make the proof of their treason Clear in localities Douglas ism is strongest the defeat of the democracy is most signal. Wherever it was possible for them to do it candidates who were not in the Douglas interest were slaughtered to Weir game in this respect was played in precisely the same Way in which they played it two years before. In the District composed of Washington Green and Fayette a District which when the democracy is United and when there is no treason in its ranks has uni family Given Tom 1,500 to 1,600 a Iorito Jesse Lazear the democratic nominee has been Cut hundreds of votes by the Douglas Wing of the party and his Success made doubtful this too in the distinct represented by or. Montgomery who two years ago notwithstanding his Well known Douglas proclivities l received the full support of the friends of the administration. Although Lehman in the 1st congressional District was very unacceptable to the National democracy because of his hostility to Owen Jones in the 5th District because of his endorsement of the notorious John Hickman because of his persistent and untiring a fibres to defeat col. Florence the regular nominee of the District two years ago yet because he was now the nominee the Breckinridge in overlooking Liis past record gave him his election while the Douglas men struck Down Samuel Randall the candidate for the Senate in the same District find in the 5th congressional District Defeated Ingersoll because he was the Friend of Breckinridge. In the fifteenth congressional distinct the served general Fleming in the same Way because he was suspected of sympathizing with Breckinridge and in the stronghold of Douglas Lycoming county the Home of governor Packer they actually gave a majority for Curtin. This is not All. In Bucks county they consorted i and counselled with the enemy Captain Davis the editor of the Douglas paper at Doylestown a Disaji-1 pointed applicant to Buchanan for office was elected with Forney and others there and at that secret meeting they compared notes and made the calculations of who and How Many they could carry Over to Curtin. In Chester county or. Brinton the Breckinridge candidate for Congress received Over five thousand votes Smith who was put up As a Decoy Douglas candidate received Only 256 votes yet previous to the election in that count they claimed that the Douglas Wing was in the majority. Brinton could not and did not receive the Douglas vote it was Given for Hickman As they gave it two years before making True the old adage that Quot Birds of a Feather flock a Man who formerly hailed from Monroe county was disguised in a new suit of clothes furnish red wit i scrip and purse and sent Back from this City to his old stumping ground to visit his Douglas friends in Monroe and Northampton to assure them that the Douglas men in this City would go for Curtin because that the election of Foster would help to secure the stale for Breckinridge and would destroy the men who Ocie Active in getting up the straight out Douglas tickets and Well did he Peri Brm his Kavork. The Douglas men of that Region Quot were obedient unto tiie Douglas but wily enumerate instances that press upon us from every Point ? the fact is palpable and the evidence not susceptible of contradiction. It justifies and sustains the Init i Ess on that a Large a very Large portion of tie straight out Douglas men played false to Foster and thus is his overwhelming defeat acco inf de Foi. I 1 would be unjust to accuse them All of doing so therefore we do not accuse All. We know of Many Liono Rable exceptions but these honorable exceptions were not sufi client to save the party. It is however. Beyond All doubt All controversy that thousands of men voted for Curtin and thousands against tie democratic candidates for Congress legislative and county offices. No wonder these men predicted defeat they knew that Foster would be Defeated and we have no doubt but they could furnish the particulars of that defeat men who were so ready to predict defeat who were so willing to bet their Money upon Curtin knew what action their predictions Weie founded upon they knew Why Uliey bet their Money they Are Welcome o All the laurels to All the Money they have gained in striking Down the democratic candidates. The Day will come a Hen their new allies will Des Jivise them As much As the democracy now despise them. If we May judge by the tone of the Nort i am Ericco already the republicans Quot while Uliey love the treason hate the All we now ask is that the National democracy everywhere shall Cut off such men and give us a clean party and we will find new recruits of better men close u our ranks and again March on to Bell elector for Breckinridge the Keason. Or. B. B. Mccraw was a Bell and Everett elector in Alabama and is a Man of ability and influence of whom the Montgomery Dail Post a know nothing Organ on the 9th inst., said j our Young Friend i Craw is ardently at work and his efforts Tell with sensible of text upon the ranks of the Brecki Ridgers. Mac. Is a natural orator he is a Man of Fine natural parts perfectly conversant with the questions at Issue and entirely capable to meet any disunion Champion that has yet made his debut in j that county. The glorious constitutional Union Flag will never Trail in the dust As Long As he is its bearer. Or. Mccraw is a True Friend of the South. He supported Bell and Everett on state rights grounds. He was met at one of his appointments by s. F. Rice who attacked or. Everett s published opinions on the subject of slavery. Or. Mccraw found some difficulty in explaining away what his candidate for the vice presidency had written and said on that question. But with Faith m or. Everett which was not sustained by the result he wrote to that gentleman for something to refute what he believed was a slander upon a sound and conservative statesman. He was answered not by my. Everett himself but by his confidential and official Friend in. Leverett Saltonstall Quot pres ident of the state Union committee of Massachusetts Quot who has charge of the conscience and of the political correspondence of the know nothing candidate Lor vice president during the canvass. In. Saltonstall s letter was of such a nature that or. Mccraw was perfectly satisfied that As a True Southern Man he could not sup sort or. Everett and accordingly he announced his intention to go for Breckinridge and Lane. The subjoined correspondence from tie Montgomery Ala of the 15th, needs no comment. It Speaks for Tisev a Daues Ville. Ala., oct. 13, 18g0. B. B. Mccrac dear sir it is reported that you addressed a letter to Hon. Edward Everett in regard to his views on the subject of slavery and the Equality of the two races White and Black which Hon. F. Rice attempted to deduce from certain i passages in his Jib listed orations and that you have received his reply with which you Are not satisfied. If said letters arc not private and you have no objection to their publication i Shuhl be pleased to have copies of them with the impression which the response has made upon your mind for j publication. Very truly a our of t serv to w. P. Chilton. 1 Dap Seville oct. 13, i860. Hon. W. P. Chilton dear sir your note of this Date is before me and i proceed to reply to it. Be Lieving it probable that an election for president would not be made b the people or by Congress j and that it might go before the Senate to be made i from among the candidates for vice president after the charge was publicly made in this county against or. Everett that he was in favor of negro Equality with the White Many a miserable Dogma which lies at tiie foundation of abolition fanaticism i thought it my duty As an elector for this county on the Bell Anil Everett ticket to address or. Everett on the subject and consequently forwarded to him a letter of which the following is a copy j Wadesville ala., september 25, 1860. I dear sir the Hon. F. Rice in a speech de \ slivered to Day charged you with being an advocate of the doctrine of the Equality of the two races the White and the Black and attempted to prove it by showing that you had practically endorsed it in sending your children to school with negroes. I am an elector on your ticket and therefore feel a deep interest in the Success of the Bell and Everett ticket and ardently desire its Success. Are you in favor of the doctrine of the of Quality of the two races please to answer me Yea or nay Over your own signature that i May successfully refute the slander. Very truly yours b b Mccraw. To Hon. Edward Everett Boston. On the 12th inst. I received a reply from or. Everett written by or. Leverett Saltonstall of which the following is a copy Boston oct. 3,1860. Quot Bear sir your letter of the 25th september addressed for. Everett was received last evening and immediately placed in my lands to be answered. Quot by the Laws of Massachusetts the schools Are often to All without distinction of color and any exclusion on that ground is forbidden. Or. Everett has not at present any children at school his youngest having graduated at the University in this neighbourhood is a student at the University of Cambridge. England.

Lincoln what would he do from this Day till the end of the canvass would he not. Like Yancey Rush into the thickest of the fight into the very midst and the Centre of the abolition forces ? Avold lie not strive As Yancey is of Iii to give the electoral vote of new York Lincoln and so save the con new York City oct. 8, 1860. Stit ution and the Union but Douglas does not wish the defeat of Lincoln is in the City of new York to defeat Lincoln. He feels with All the jealousy of an Objet with nine tenths of the people Paramount a Little soul that the South has not Rehim for to every other political consideration. The inevitable his seeming cringing subservience to her in the Joast results of his election Are of too momentous import and he Means to wreak his vengeance and his spite acc to the vital interests of tie great commercial upon her. With this View he seeks to surrender new Metropolis of the continent to escape anxious solicit York to the enemy. A Ith this View he is going to tude and inspire the most Earnest resistance Heth invade the Soutsi to distract her councils to foment or dissolution ensue or not the City of new York must discord among the peo Jile and to prepare the Way for Sii Fier from the financial Shock which the apprehension her subjection to the anti slavery minions of the of civil commotion will bring about. The disastrous North. Fruits of Lincoln s election so far As Trade and Money All Honor to the patriotic Yancey.

The i venal soul which is the True Patriot is it Yan business men of new York clearly foresee these con Cey Avaio is seeking to unite the conservative masses sequences and arc manifestly in Earnest in their move of new York in order to defeat the election of Lin ments to Avert the calamity. They Are for Combina-1 Coin ? or is it Stephen a. Douglas Avaio is going to Tion and fusion on any terms and with any party to defeat Lincoln. Men seem to have ceased to express their preferences for any candidate intent As they Are in their opposition to the Republican. None of the parties to this fusion propose any Compromise of principle nor indeed any co operation beyond the occasion now presented. I confess i commend the so Virit and am pleased with the position of parties. The apprehensions of the business men of Nav York Are Well grounded. No Man can foresee the canvass the South with the mean tii Ough vain Hope of fomenting Liscord in the South in order to Render her an easier prey to the ravenous Poriles of Northern abolitionism a Louis bulletin. From Iho Journ in of not Iii Teri e. A Little too Strong for them. Our exposition of the abolition sentiments avowed limit of the baneful results of Lincoln s election. Its by senator Wilson in his farming Ham speech at effect Union the government itself its consequences to tracts the attention of the two Peatling Republican or the Union can be but a matter of speculation. For Gans in this City the Tribune and the time both of one i do not believe it , and Ilo not think it will which attempt to break the Force of their Leader s in disrupt the confederacy. I am no Blind devotee of discretion by an ingenious construction which makes Union and would not shriek Quot Union Quot in the face of the senator appear in the very inno it ent Altitude of wrong and aggression upon the rights of the slave wishing the Good Luck to the Republican party of re states. I am for the Union but Only for a Union of mailing in Jower when once in until slavery shall co equal and co Sovereign Stales with Equality of i disappear from this continent. This Touhl be a longer right. I am for the Umon under the Constitution lease than that party can reasonably expect to obtain i. The election of Lincoln will not Piso Facto change the this year of our lord 1860, or on the fourth of March character of the Union or destroy the i Quality of the i Follo vying. C institution. The election of any Man. Under the but the sentiments avowed by the Massachusetts forms of the Constitution cannot lie just ground for senator Are by no Means so mild As tha Tribune and secession and the South ought not to assume a false times would have the Public believe. That gentle position before the world by acting upon such a state Man does not Deal in such gentle wishes and feeble of fact. Let us await the overt act. Expressions of Homie Tor the Republican party As would Sive policy of the republicans be inaugurated and the be inferred from the comment of those papiers. His attempt Nide to carry out those mad a a urn roses so free-1 language often More Ibreish than Cleaste or elegantly avowed. Then the South can act with the justify is not of that amiable sort which merely shadows Forth cation of the world. A Hope that when his political friends Oil e get into i do not doubt that in the Cotton states the Legisla Power they May to Able to retain it for an indefinite Tures will be called together and that a Strong party period.

Go for nothing and then too do senator Avilton s the fusion ticket composed of 18 Douglas men 10 i bold avowal of doctrine dwindle into Mere words.

He meant just what his Las mad counsel and Are now full embarked in the words imply that if the republicans could get posses fusion movement. True they have Given Sion of the general government the rights of slave i Ridge an unequal representation on the ticket but i have reason to believe his friends will acquiesce in the movement and while protesting against its injustice will withdraw their own ticket and Quot go in Quot to beat Lincoln. Or. Brady will not decline but in a Short time the opposition to Lincoln in new York will be Ped etly consolidated and his defeat Here May be hopefully . Pond nce of he Lex info i a a Linesman. Holders everywhere on this continent Shuhl be disregarded the rights of Sovereign states in this Union set at nought and the favorite theory of the abolition Branch of the Republican party be carried into practical effect. This doctrine earnestly entertained and sometimes boldly avowed by leading re Niblic ans of the Massachusetts and Ohio schools is a Little too Strong to stand the test of pubic sentiment in new York and some other sections of the North. Hence the Tribune and which is the True a riot la it Yancey s so Iii or is it Douglas ? i Winch will Render them tolerable Here where the Hopes of Lincoln Are Yoav entered. But it will not do thus the Hon. We. L. Yancey whom the Dougl Sites to Dodge or evade the questions at Issue. While Wil Are so fond of denouncing As a disunion St and a trait son Sumner Lovejoy and their sympathizers Rule or is diligently canvassing the great state of new the Republican party we shall continue to hold that York in behalf of the Union elector Al ticket. He party responsible for the doctrine they avow at least until we see some evidence that they Are repudiated by the party at Large. This evidence does not appear in the continuance of these men in High official Posi. Tion such As they now occupy. I nor do Lincoln and Seward stand better when tried by the same Standard. They hold that the conflict must go on until the country becomes All free or All slave and As they Well know the climate and productions of the North forbid the employment of slave South an institution which the Laws Aud customs of that Section of the Union have established. Wilson tyls us that when the republicans once Quot take Possession of the they will not let go until slavery is driven from this continent. Still in the face of All these avowal on the part of the actual leaders of the party avowal necessary to secure the Active support of the anti slavery Branch thereof the Tribune and times under fake and in this they Are joined by the courier to in Ove that party entirely harmless respecting the rights of the South. O shame where is thy Blush ? from uie Cleveland Ohio t fuse for it might defeat Lincoln. A Quot he i Cincinnati enquirer some Days ago came out in favor of a fusion Between the know nothings and the Douglas men. A few Days thereafter the same paper contained an authorized notice for the Douglas state committee to meet at Columbus on monday the -22 1 inst., to play at 12 m. The object of the meeting being understood to be an Ari argement to unite the anti Lincoln vote of the state the Cincinnati commercial charged that it was to effect an arrangement for an elect Oral ticket composed of Douglas Bell and Breckinridge men. To this interpretation the enquirer has the following Quot a Al Sion with Tiik Liec Kynli 11>0k Sill Al it. Tile i it Jinni a i Ltd has seen fit to place Ilie interpretation Iii Dijour Arviele desiring a Union of Quot tax Lleini in Nicy and the friends of Bell and Evereit in Ohio Liat we would also include the Breckinridge Sijuan in the a i Eli Zient. It knew of course from our sentiments Oti ii expressed Itiat the interpretation was t Alse. We hold the Breckinridge faction to be As ii ich oppo Seil to the Deni Cracy and to the Union is Are the republicans. They like the republicans Are a sectional party and. Like the latter hold to the doctrine of intervention with slavery. The democracy and the Union men Sli Oxild never recognize them in any other manner than As the to get of enemies. In All their moves they Luke played into the hands of the republicans Anil in Northern elections they have voted directly with them. If Lincoln is elected it will be their work and upon them will be vented the response ibid to no Democrat can Ever vote for one of them until he renounces his errors and takes his seat Back again in the Demoe Ratie of Conise Quot Douglas Aud his a Quot will fuse with none except their Beautiful and natural allies the know nothings. To do otherwise to unite the sup orters of Brycki Nuidok wit i those of Douglas on a single electoral ticket might be the Means of casting the vote of Ohio against Lincoln and thus defeat him. Which would ski Oil All the plans of the Douglas faction for. If Lincoln is not elected by the a Cople. Buei Kimii Idinie or Lank assuredly will be by Congress. The enquirer article excites no Surprise for it is but carrying out the Itule or ruin policy inaugurated by Tver. Douglas and his men. Before the removal of i. Faran from the Cincinnati Tost of in it. The Avys Quot supported the be Somji ton Jio Licy of the admin it tation. And abused All who opposed it. Like the a lain / i f t. Of this City it halt seen strange sights and has got new Light since the Day the spoils of office were taken from is to blame ? Fiona the St. Louis bulletin the bogus democrats profess to consider the late news from Indiana Ohio and Pennsylvania astounding but if the election of Lincoln and the consequent dissolution of the Union Are rendered possible upon whom we Pray is the blame to be charged who have for selfish Antl sinister . Striven to disintegrate the democratic party and along with it the Union of these Sovereign states the question is certainly not an unanswerable one. It was surely imperative upon the democratic party at Baltimore after the secession of or. Douglas and his clique to reassert the a principles of the Constitution and the original articles of Compromise and Concession loudly and boldly. There Are. After All interests and rights which Are St Perior to any a political bargain which May be made. Tiie Union is. Without doubt invaluable and none prize it More Tolian the states which have for Twenty years endured a systematic aggression which Contemp lated the utter destruction of their social fabric. They have a Irovetz their Devotion to it by a Loi g and patient endurance of wrong. If they Are not going to perpetuate this endurance to the extent of Dishonour and ruin surely the fault is not to be charged to their account. If they Are to j protest against the base treachery of false friends let not the nation impute the blame to them. Had or. Douglas abide by the usages and prescriptions of the party none of this evil would have threatened the democratic party was Strong in the Confidence of the masses. It was All Jiewei Ful both in the North and in the South. Its ancient doctrines Safe from interpolation and mis construction would have preserved the just equilibrium of Power Between the contending sections. The Broil using and manufacturing regions of the country e dually Touhl have been Content to abide under a common government. It was an evil hour when the ambition of 3ir. Douglas intervened to disturb this National repose. He wanted to be president. Lany a Man of greater menial calibre might have been satisfied with a seat in the first i deliberative body in the world in which Clay Calhoun Webster and Hayne did not disdain a seat. Hen the nation failed to acquiesce in the claims of some of these gentlemen to occupy the executive chair they and their friends Che Erifilly acquiesced in the decision of the people. They never presumed in Conse hence to disturb the peace of their respective parties. Differing widely from each other As they did they never attempted to set up novel theories and adopt treacherous tactics. It was i reserved for him to stump the country for the presidency. It avas reserved for him under the deceitful phase of adherence Lottie Deni Cracy to do More than even the most rampant abolitionist has done to alienate the North from the South. It was reserved for him to bring about a controversy at whose consequences even path of must desperate. From the Henderson by reporter the Dougl Sites have Given us All Hope of exerting any influence in this state except to throw the electoral vote for that old fog John Bell who has spent the greater portion of a Long lifetime in opposing and abusing and democratic measures. These renegade squatter sovereignty democrats now declare that they will vote for Bell in order to defeat Breckinridge James p. Bates a Douglas elector admitted a few lavs ago in a so Leech at Princeton that the squatters Only Hopel to throw the state for Bell. We heard the assistant Douglas elector for this District Sav that Quot if he thought Bell could not carry the state against Breckinridge on his own responsibility he would advise the friends of Douglas to vote for Sweet scented democrats indeed who Are willing to fuse with that party which caused the Blooml of native and foreign democrats to flow in the streets of Louisville new Orleans and Baltimore in the memorable contests of 1855- 56. Simon pure democrats truly to support directly or indirectly John Bell who upheld the murderous acts of know nothing Jullies in some of our principal cities. But so the matter goes. Has already spoken to immense crowds in the cities of new York Albany Syracuse and Rochester endeavouring by the Power of his Resistless logic and his matchless eloquence to bring about a thorough Union of the conservative voters of that important state upon the anti Republican electoral ticket. If he can accomplish that aided As he is by the Best and the purest citizens of new York then will Lincoln be Defeated the Union be saved and the peace of the country assured. No Man is contributing More pow labor it follows that they propose to drive from the Quot the of the Bullet Quot a that Arch fiend of mischief the Man who j perjured himself when he swore to support the Constitution of the u. S., and then said that he must obey Quot a higher Law Quot a William h. Seward we Means recently made a speech at Cleveland Ohio in Wlinich he says that Quot All men shall have the ballot or none All men shall have the Bullet or none Quot which being translated Means that the negroes at the South shall have the Ilot or if not they shall have the Bullet
