I fort wok tii Texas August 12, 1860. 4 by the last mail the Secretary forwarded of a copy of the proceeding of perhaps one of the largest meetings Ever assembled together on a similar occasion in Northern Texas. I propose to give you a Short history of tiie past few weeks the state of Public sentiment so far As i have been Able to appreciate it the feelings of those present arc portrayed in the 4th and 5th resolutions sent you and to make a few a observations on the state of parties ii Ere the necessary consequences which must follow the election of Lin Coin to the presidency. About five weeks ago the town of Dallas was burned on the same Day Denton shared the same Fate and several other towns in Isom Thern Texas were in Quick succession there were a number of country residences set on fire. Quite a number of our Citi Zens had All they had on Earth Burnt up wheat Corn Rye Oats feud ing &c., amp a. A few weeks before these things occurred a fire had been discovered about 12 m. In the store of messes. Field amp Kennedy of this place. These circumstances led to the formation of vigilance committees in almost every county in Northern i in the county of Dallas the discovery was made that tie negroes had fired the town of Dallas and the residences and farms of its citizens that there was in each county a Leader who was a Wiite Man Liose name was kept secret from most of the negroes and that slow matches were furnished by him to the negroes Avrich they applied to the houses which they determined to destroy. There was also found a Large Quantity of Poison in the Possession of the negroes which when gathered together would have filled a half barrel. It was also discovered that these abolition incendiaries had been sent Here by abolition Aid societies. In fort Worth a suspicious character recently from the state of Minnesota was carefully watched. He was betrayed by one of the negroes detected and Hung without an hour s warning. He had told that he expected a Large number of six shooters on every Day and since he was Hung the revolvers 300 in number have come to his address marked Quot clocks Quot in three separate boxes 100 in each. These discoveries Are not confined to Dallas and Tarrant counties but extend to a very considerable portion of Northern Texas. The first monday in August election Day was the Daj of general revolt. I will add that the Man Hung in fort a Orth was not the Only one who shared the same Fate and there has been a general Stampede among the suspicious several of whom could Only save their necks % flight. Tie vigilance committees have determined to order no one to leave but to hang every Man who puts his feet on Texas soil vowing the Quot doctrines Quot of the abolitionists. To appreciate the feelings of our citizens you would have to be in our midst at this time. Our r houses &c., were not Only to be burned and our Citi Zens murdered but the Young women and Little girls were to be saved to become the concubines of these fiends of hell. Our citizens look upon an abolitionist As a murderer and incendiary As one who advocates principles which must necessarily Lead to every species of iniquity known in the catalogue of crime. They know there is an abolition Aid society forwarding six shooters Here with which to murder us and then commit every species of enormity on the mothers Sisters wives and daughters of Southern citizens. The scene is too be vol Tang to contemplate. I would to god it was in True. The great heart of the people Here is with Breckinridge and Lane. They look upon Douglas Quot popular sovereignty Quot Dol Triue As free soil Quot in tendency and practice and consequently destructive of the rights of the South incendiary in practice if not in principle. They believe that Lincoln is the head and representative of this abolition Aid society which sent John Brown to Virginia and which is now giving us so much trouble Here. We desire to preserve a Union of free equal and Sovereign states with that Protection which the Constitution guarantees to us just such a Union As is represented by the party which nominated Breckinridge and Lane and in no other Way can this Union be sieved. Yours respectfully j. W. S. Further accounts. Galation a breaking up of the compromises of the Constitution and a total exclusion of the South from the common territories of the country won by their blood and treasure. W. R. D. A. Hon. John h. Reagan m. C., has written a letter to his brother Morris Reagan which is published in the Austin Gazette. Here is the letter Palestine August 18, 1860. Dear brother i was called to the court House yesterday when writing to Yon to attend a meeting in relation to the negro disturbances and did not write to you what is going on in that respect. A plot has been discovered in Tennessee Colony and extending out from there Between some White men and negroes similar to thit in Dallas Ellis and Tarrant counties. Indeed it is regarded As part of the same plot to Poison As Many people As they could on sunday night before the election and on the Day of the election to Burn the houses and kill As Many of the women and children As they could while the men were gone to the election and then kill the men As they returned Home. On last saturday two White men who lived up near Catfish Bayou were Hung As the ringleaders of the plot in this county. Our vigilance committees and patrol have been Active Here in guarding against other dangers and in investigating this matter. One negro has been Hung in Henderson and one in Cherokee county and we Are informed that the town of Henderson has been Bur Netly step Josed by incendiaries but no particulars yet. I am strongly persuaded from All i can learn that these things must be the result of an abolition plot arranged elsewhere than in Texas and that its execution has been committed to the desperate set of Kansas outlaws or similar men. And i do not think one of them ought to be permitted to leave the state alive where his complicity can be clearly shown. Your brother John h. Re Gay. The new Oilean Picayune says that the burning of towns in Texas will fall heavily upon new York merchants they having enjoyed the greater part of the Trade of the is the Best policy from an old correspondent Marshall Texa August 12,1860. Editors of the even Imp Day Book 1 the wildest exit cont prevails throughout the North Western North Eastern and the Central portions of Texas in consequence of abolition incendiary so. I have no doubt but you have seen Ere this readies you the burning of Dallas Denton Black Jack Grove i and quite a Large number of stores and Mills. Loss estimated at Between ii 1,500,000 and 82,000,000�? since then the abolitionists have been detected in attempts to fire a number of other towns South of the j above and in an extensive plan of insurrection among the negroes headed by these demons of hell j on some plantations the negroes have been exam-1 ined and arms and ammunition in considerable amount have been found in their Possession they All admit Thev were Given to them by these Lincol nites. Every Day we hear of the burning of some town Mill store or farm House. Henderson was Burnt to ashes on the a 6th instant being the general election Day or state and county officers. We hear of two or three other towns Buiwit on the same Day. I women and children have been so frightened by these burnings and threatened rebellion of the be i Groes that in several instances they have left their Homes in their fright and when found were almost confirmed maniacs military companies Are Organ-1 sized All Over the state and one half of our citizens i do constant patrol duty. I the plan was to Burn All of the towns thereby destroying the arms and ammunition also country stores Mills farms Corn cribs amp a. Tsien on election Day they were to be headed by John Browns and March South for Houston and Galveston City where they would All unite and after pillaging and burning those j two cities the negroes were pro nosed by these devils incarnate that they would have in readiness a number of vessels and would take them forthwith to Mexico where they would be free. Tiie credulity of the negro is so great that he can be induced to believe almost anything no matter How impossible it May be particularly when lie is Init red by a shrewd White Man that the thing can be done and that he will Lead them on and Jaccoi Pulish the object but the end is not yet. It is now becoming a settled conviction in the South that this Union cannot subsist one Day after Abe Lincoln has been declared president for they the people of the South have made up their minds that they had rather die sword in Liand in defense of their Homes their wives their children and slaves in defense of the Constitution the Laws and their sacred Honor than tamely submit to an organized system of robbery a degraded acid Luaulu it ome scheme of Malthe Prospect of a Union in new York. We were of opinion that democrats ought not to Divide for the Benefit of the opposition by nominating a candidate at Baltimore the presentation and clamorous pressing of whose claims at i Harleston had j already divided the party and whose withdrawal was i alone necessary to restore Unity. When the evil was accomplished we were of the of Inion that the two wings of the party should still act together so As to j carry a majority of the states against Lincoln. The j Douglas managers determined that no such Union i should take place and his Central committee through i or. Miles Taylor issued their Imperial decree to that of acct. Or. Douglas himself repeatedly denounced the idea of any action based upon the idea that dem-1 of crafts should Quot not Divide for the Benefit of the of Sposi Tion Quot and Only a few Days ago in Newark after mis-1 representing the position of the Breckinridge Branch of the party said Quot i will torm no fusion no coalition i with any body of men who hold opinions on this Lead-1 ing Issue squatter sovereignty in contravention of j my the fact is self evident that the Douglas Bell coalition is a combination not against Lincoln but against Breckinridge. If that is not the object Why does in. Douglas Dragoon his forces in Kentucky to vote for the Auti Dein sciatic candidates and chuckle Over the result Why do his supporters unite with the Bell party in every Southern state where the combination is expected to defeat Breckinridge and to Nin a separate ticket where that seems the most effectual policy to accomplish the same result ? Why does the Fri lowing dispatch appear in the new Yolk news Doug Las Organ this morning As Quot Good news Quot if the object of the coalition is not to give the state of Penns Iva Nia to Lincoln ? Quot not Only the National committee but or. Douglas himself sustains col. Forney in his opposition to the Breckinridge fusion ticket in Pennsylvania. Ilav j ing United with the Union party any amalgamation i with the Sec Ders will be considered a breach of or. Douglas and every one of his authorized agents having scouted the idea of any Union with the Breckinridge party in every shape Quot and form the game is now to talk Union at the Breckinridge men in this state with such blustering Pertinacity As will drive some weak kneed members of that party into the Douglas Camp after that gentleman himself Quot has declared that he will not have their services. There is no sane Man pretends to imagine that the Douglas and bellmen can carry this state without the Earnest co operation of the supporters of Breckinridge. And jct or. Douglas declares that he will i Quot form no coalition with the object of himself i and his agents seems to be As we have said to keep up i the two organizations in this state but to Broad beat timid democrats into his ranks and thus with the Aid i of his know nothing supporters be Able to show a heavier vote than Breckinridge. It is against Breck-1 i Ridge that he and his Bellitz allies Are working. He is stumping the South now. Who is he opposing there Lincoln is he afraid the republicans will carry Virginia or the Carolinas ? no it is Breckin i Ridge he is opposing and he Lopes to place him in a minority in the Southern states by the lid of the Bell i ites and at North he will give Pennsylvania and j every state which a United i democracy could carry and whose vote might in any contingency be Given i to Breckinridge to the Republican Brooklyn a a. K . Douglas Don t care particularly about the presidency. I in a recent speech at Newark new Jersey or Douglas said Quot i talk plainly to you but there is no reason Why i should not do so. To me the presidency is a matter of very Little importance. I confess that my ambition i my individual Choice would be to retain a seat in the i Senate in preference to the presidency. And if i am elected i shall deem that i make a great sacrifice in accepting theoflice rather than gain b the change of place. If. Therefore i consent to accept your votes i i shall do it expressly on the condition that i Render you As great a favor by accepting the gift at your hands As you do in offering it laughter i do not want the office except it is for your Good and the Good of your children and of their it is really a Good thing or. Doughs cares so Little about this matter. Blessed Are they who expect nothing for they shall not be disappointed it was no doubt the same feeling that preyed upon him at Newark the feeling of utter despondency Avrich caused him to write to confident Iii friends at Washington in favor of a declension but which his private Secretary and others prevented by starting the Roorback that or. Breckinridge whose cause is every Day brightening had it in contemplation to do the same thing. If let alone sir. Douglas would decline within the next thirty Days and we Are not certain but that he will any How. If he remains a candidate he will not be known to history As such for he will not receive a single electoral vote. republicans have not elected a single member of the legislature outside of St. Louis county. The idea of the republicans carrying the state is Akin to the ridiculous. Breckinridge and Lane will carry it beyond a doubt. J. Depeyster Ogden one of the Bell men put on the Douglas Bell fusion in new York has declared his intention to withdraw if Douglas is to have All the advantage of the coalition and Bell none of it. The Vii a Argus says that Hampshire county will be earned by Breckinridge and Lane by at least 250 majority. There Are Many Northern democrats who Are As much opposed a is we Are to the doctrines of Black republicanism and who would regard the Triumph of Lincoln As the greatest calamity that could befall the countr who nevertheless Are deluded into the be j Lief that if they boldly and honestly advocate the Protection of the constitutional rights of the South in the common territories they will lose democratic votes. In the coming election and add to the numerical strength of the republicans. If these men Are asked whether they do or do not believe that Southern men have the same right As Northern men to Settle in the territories with their property they unhesitatingly answer in the affirmative. If they Are asked whether they believe Itiat under the Constitution the Power is denied to Congress or a territorial legislature to prohibit slavery in any territory they at once reply that neither has that Power and that they Are convinced that the people of the territories alone can determine whether they will or will not adopt the institution of slavery when they Frame the Constitution under which they seek admission into the Union As a state. If they Are asked whether they believe that the decision of the supreme court in the dred Scott Case is an authoritative exposition of the Constitution to which All Good citizens Are bound to yield implicit obedience they. Promptly answer that they do so believe. J but when they Are asked Why they do not there fore admit that if a territorial legislature usurps Power which the Constitution denies to Congress and which it is obvious Congress cannot Confer us on its creatures and passes Laws hostile to slavery or refuses to pass Laws necessary for the Protection of slave property As Well As any other species of property it is the duty of Congress to remedy the evian prevent the commission of a Clear violation of the constitutions they answer that they have agreed to non intervene i Tion by Congress with slavery in the territories that if they allow that Congress has Power to intervene even to prevent a violation of the rights of private property or a practical denial of the equal rights of the several states they open the door for congressional intervention and that if they go further and insist that the proprietary rights of a master in his slave must be protected it would be said that they arc advocating a Quot slave code Quot and intervention Quot in favor of slavery Quot and thus drive off into the Camp of the Black i republicans All the weak kneed democrats ? who a Are opposed to the institution of slavery and whose votes it is expedient to retain. To these men thus deceived into a sacrifice of truth and principle to a mistaken expediency and who from laziness or weakness have failed to examine the subject thoroughly we would address a few words of Trutlin and Earnest advice with a View to show them that their argument is false from beginning to end and that in politics As in everything else honesty is the Best policy and truth and principle far better and safer guides than self interest or Mere . The South does not ask for and never would con sent to any abandonment of the doctrine of non intervention by Congress with slavery in the states or Terii topics. She adheres tenaciously to that doctrine because she knows that the Constitution denies to Congress any authority to establish or prohibit slavery it anywhere. She maintains that she has equal rights in the territories Avith the North that her citizens have therefore the right to take with them into the i territory of the United states their property of every kind slaves included recognized As such by the Constitution that neither Congress nor its subordinate a territorial legislature can defeat or abridge that right and that if the latter does directly or indirectly attempt to violate the supreme Law of the Republic and prohibit impair or destroy the proprietary right of a master in ins slave it is the duty of Congress to i interfere to prevent the commission of a crime and enforce the Law. Tie South does not ask for the imme Diate passage of any Law by Congress to protect her property. She Only asks that it Coj Jeriene should prove that constitutional rights of property have been outraged by a territorial legislature and that the j Laws now existing on the statute Book should prove insufficient to enable the executive and the judiciary \ to remedy the wrong it shall then be the duty of con Gress to Supply the deficiency within the limits of its constitutional jurisdiction. No honest Man who believes in the Constitution As expounded by the supreme court can say that this demand is unjust or exacting. No one can say that it ought not to be i granted. How can it be tortured into a demand for a i Quot slave code Quot or a de arture from the principle of non-1 intervention suppose the legislature of a territory were to pass Laws prohibiting the introduction of mules or reaping machines or to refuse to pass Laws rendering the robbery or destruction of mules and reapers a crime or to impose a tax of one thousand dollars on every mule and reaper introduced into the territory would it be considered a dangerous violation of the principle of non intervention by Congress in the Domestic affairs of a territory were that body to repeal the unconstitutional legislation of its creature and afford adequate Protection to the property thus sought to be prohibited or impaired could it be said that be cause Congress has Power to protect private constitutional rights it must follow that it has the Power to j prohibit the introduction of Niles or reacting a i Chines into a territory and forbid the constitutional j right of hold them there in other words does the admission that Congress has Power to prevent a Vio lation of the Constitution imply that Congress has j Power to violate the Constitution itself is not such an argument manifestly absurd what expedit j ency can there is in sustaining such a Fallac ? i nothing was Ever gained by any individual party or people by concealing the truth in order to conciliate those who have espoused falsehood. If there Are men who calling themselves democrats will vote for the Black republicans unless the principles of the j democratic party Are hidden or diluted the sooner j they throw off their sheep s clothing and expose their wolfish nature the better. The Man who admits that the territories Are open alike to the citizens of All j the states that Congress cannot prohibit or establish i slavery there and that slaves Are property but maintains that no matter what the Constitution directs on the subject the people of a territory by their legislature May directly or indirectly prohibit slavery within their limits and that Congress has no Power to protect private property in slaves if assailed % a territorial legislature is no Democrat. His doctrine is i As subversive of the Equality of the states As the Wil-1 Mot proviso or any other abolition Dogma of the i Black republicans to assent to his doctrine is As criminal As to subscribe to the Creed of Lincoln or Seward it May be called democracy and covered Over with the plating of non intervention but it is a bogus representation of the principles of the glorious old democratic party which no Democrat can help to pass without being guilty of a crime against his party and his conscience and if attempted in order to catch Black Republican votes without being guilty of an act of egregious Folly for it is certain that whenever the democratic party dilutes its Creed so As to resemble Black republicanism for the sordid purpose of maintaining place and patronage those who Are wavering in their allegiance to our Standard will join the party that boldly asserts its Faith rather than continue m a party which has not the manliness or the courage to stand by the principles which it affects to profess. The expediency argument is As false As it is futile. It will disgrace those who adhere to it while it a ill not effect the narrow purpose for which it is Vised. Honor and duty Are the Best guides. Expediency when opposed to principle is sure to mislead. If those who Are afraid of losing votes by telling the truth and maintaining what they know to be Justice will Only divest themselves of their fears and proclaim openly what they know in their hearts is right they will find that they will not lose As Many votes As they Washington and Lane meeting. Pursuant to i Evious notice the National Deino Cui by met at Bray s building in the City of Evansville on the evening of the 30th Day of August 1860, and organized by calling John Hewson esq., to the chair and the appointment of g. W. Mcbride Secretary. The meeting then proceeded to organize themselves into a Breckinridge and Lane club to be known and designated As Quot the old line guard Dei socratic club Quot of the City of Evansville.

Bray John Kehoe and John h. Bof Andick were appointed permanent committee on finance. John Gavisk John Hewson John Kehoe John b. Hall and James Ennis were appointed a committee to procure a Breckinridge and Lane pole and to superintend the raising of the set inc. The committee on resolutions consisting of Sam. Uni. Gibson. R.

A Mcbride Reix irked the following resolutions which were unanimously adopted res fired that the old line Quai a of tiie democracy in the pocket in accordance with the constitutional in Otlo of their Choice for the presidency and vice presidency the Constitution and the Union and the i vitality of the states Are pained and mortified at the exhibition of the sectional and unconstitutional opinions advocated by Stephen Arnold Douglas and those who with him adopt the anti democratic doctrine of squatter sovereignty in the territories. Resolved that we of the old line guard do hereby solemnly denounce and repudiate All Dema Gog ism. Sectional ism and fanaticism emanating from whom they May As dangerous in their tendency antagonistic to the spirit Ai d the letter of the Constitution and utterly suave Sivy of the principles of True democracy. Resolved that the platform adopted by the democratic party at Cincinnati in Isom with the explanatory resolutions As set Forth by the Baltimore convention be re affirmed and re adopted As the plat Connof the old line Guaito democracy of the City of Evansville and the pocket generally. Resolved that being fully persuaded that Quot truth is mighty and must prevail Quot the old line guard will stand squarely on to Weir platform defend its principles and under the expansive folds of the glorious old Flag of the whole Union which has braved the Battle and tie Breeze March Forward to support the men of to Weir choices Breckinridge and Lane As the exponents of True democracy and to elect them to the presidency and vice presidency of the l United states. Resolved that this meeting reflects with mingled feelings of shame sorrow and indignation on the a blushing frauds perpetrated by the willing tools of a Janus faced aspirant to secure the nomination of Stephen Arnold Douglas and that we Avill henceforth use All i available Means to publish to the world those frauds in such a manner that All who run a read. Resolved that having made overtures to the supporters of Stephen a. Doughs without however compromising that dignity which True principles inspire with the View of forming a joint electoral ticket to be voted for by the adherents of both parties so As to insure the defeat of Abe Lincoln in this state but those overtures having been rejected we recommend to this meeting the calling of a convention to be held on the 7th Day of september at 2 o clock p. M., at the House of George Daum in German Tom ship for the purpose of nominating a county ticket if deemed expedient by the friends of Breckins Bilge and Lane when so convened. Resolved that we the National democracy cordially invite All the friends of Breckinridge and Lane of Vanderburgh county to meet in convention on said 7th Day of september at said place Tor said purpose. Resolved that the proceedings of this meeting be published in the Evansville journal Evansville enquirer Volks Bote and the old line guard of Indianapolis. On motion of or. J. Bray the following additional Resolution was adopt Cal resolved that we the National democracy do hereby pledge ourselves to use All honorable Means to secure the election of our state ticket and the election of John Law Abr Congress. John Hewson. President. G. W. Mcbride Douglas game. The great object of the Dougl Sites is the defeat of Breckinridge and the entire overthrow of the democratic party. All of their Nio Venu its Ilis it lose this fact As we shall see. By a glance at what has been done. In Missouri senators Polk and Ireen Tudge Price and others proposed immediately after tie disruption of the National c convention that the Ija Ity Sli Ould be kept United in this state by the of Quot a convention in which All who claimed to be democrats should be represented. Such a convention would have agreed upon a Compromise Elc Toi Al ticket which would have secured the vote of Missouri to either Breckinridge or Douglas As the majority of the voters might determine. The Dougl Sites rejected this prof position in the most insulting manner because they knew that it would result in giving the vote of Missouri to John c. Breckinridge who is the Choice of an overwhelming majority of the democratic party of this state. I hey Are on the contrary hatching up an Alliance with the Bell and Everett men in order to secure if possible the defeat of Breckinridge and Lane. So in new Jersey. The Breckinridge men who constitute the majority of the party in that slate held a convention proposed to the Union and Douglas parties to run with them one electoral ticket in opposition to the abolitionists so As to secure the vote of that state against Lincoln As might have been easily done. The Bell party acceded unhesitatingly to the proposition. The Dougl Sites rejected it and arc using every Effort to detract As Many votes As possible from the Breckinridge and Bell ticket so that Lincoln May defeat Breckinridge in Nav Jei sey. So in Virginia. The Breckinridge party held a convention last week at Charlottesville appointed a committee to proceed to Staunton where a Douglas convention was in session and to agree with them on an electoral ticket for which the Breckinridge and Douglas men might both vote in opposition to Bell and carry the state for the one or the other. The Douglas men rejected every proposition which avas thus made to them and nominated a Douglas electoral ticket because they knew that Breckinridge would receive ten times As Many votes in Virginia As Douglas and that he would Consec Pientl receive her electoral vote and they Are determined to prevent that if possible. So in North Carolina where Douglas has comi it Ara timely no strength at All they arc trying to get up an Elc Toi Al ticket to defeat Breckinridge. So in Arkansas and Kentucky Tennessee and All the Southern states. So in Pennsylvania every Well Init red person knows that the abolitionists Are in a decided minority in that state and that Lincoln could be easily Defeated if the opposition would unite upon one electoral ticket. The democratic state committee three fourths of whom Are for Breckinridge decided by a strict vote All the Breckinridge men favouring and All the Dougls men opposing it that there should be but one set of electors run by the democracy that the tickets he Oxild be headed by the name of either Doug Las or Breckinridge and that the vote of the state should be cast for that one Olio received the most votes. Liis proposition was rejected by the under the influence of the infamous Forney because they knew Liat it would result in giving the electoral vote of Pennsylvania to John c. Breckin ride. So in California and Oregon the Dougl Sites there refuse Allro operation with the Breckinridge party. While acting thus in All those states where the Breckinridge men Are More numerous than the Dougl Sites and where consequently the Union of the party would result to the Benefit of Breckinridge they pursue an opposite course in those states in which they claim the Ascendancy As in new York for instance where they have fused with the Bell men upon a common electoral ticket and now urge the Breckinridge men to help them give the vote of that state to Douglas. We Hojic that the Breckinridge men will spurn their propositions until the Dougl Sites shall have consented to withdraw their electoral ticket in every Southern state and in new Jersey and . Let the Dougl Sites do that and thereby insure the votes of a majority of those states for Jno. Breckinridge and then the Breckinridge men May honorable consent to unite with them in carrying new York and in attempting to Carr All the other Northern states for Douglas. By Tito it Dona trentes. Watch them news. The Lacki Onville Oregon Piiru Iines it. Sujit Orf of Breckinridge and Lane one of its editors retiring. Of Ien.

The mass ratification meeting in the evening will be addressed by some of the most distinguished men in the unit etl states men whose reputation for oratory and statesmanship is not excelled. Tremont Temple will be packed and jammed with As enthusiastic a gathering As has Ever met within the Walls of that Temple. Three cheers for the big Lening prospects of the National democracy Quot the Boston Post has a letter from Hallowell Maine in which the writer says that if or. Breckinridge s friends had not granted to Many concessions for the Sake of in the party. Or. B. Who was a popular Man in a Maine would be in the ascendant the Bangor i Ltd of a says that a soon As the Maine state election is Over the Breckinridge and Lane democracy will put an electoral ticket in the Field and make an Active fight for the cause of the Constitution and the Equality of states. The Breckinridge democrats in Maine will vote for . K. Smart for governor. The Montgomery Ala mail says Quot the Dadeville Banner was sold last week to senator Rowe who has taken Down the Clam Flag of Douglas and run up the Quot Equality of the states and Breckinridge and Lane. Tallapoosa will give a Thun a ring majority for Breckinridge and it before the people that Stephen a. Douglas dodged the vote on the Compromise measures in 1850. Keep it be four the pet ski that Stephen a. Douglas voted for the Ahmoi proviso. Keep it before the people that step Lien a. Douglas was a competitor for the Cincinnati in 1856, and being Defeated by Buchanan bolted after the election and made War on his party friends in the Senate of tie United states and on his successful competitor the democratic president keep it before tiie that Stephen a Douglas when Kansas asked to be admitted into the Union a a slave state stood up in the Senate wit i Hale Seward Sumner Wilson and a l the other abolition senators and said keep her out Don t admit Kansas As a slave state Quot keep it he Oke the people thai while Buchanan the democratic president urged to have Kansas admitted As a state and thereby Settle the trouble about slavery in that territory Stephen a. Douglas made this the pretext for opposition to a democratic administration and threw himself a Lucli the abolitionists against the democratic party during All of president by Chianan s administration.
