Uniting for Buchanan and Breclrinridge
Great Speech of James B. Clay
Son of 'Like Immortal Statesruun rebuking
the 'Sleatders of Mr. Buchanan.
On the 26th ult., a large and enthusiastic
meeting was held at Maysville, Ky., in sup-,

there were as many Old Line Whigs 'present
as Democrats-Land finer Old Eli te 11 7- hius.
were among the orators of the day, Colonel
a son of the immortal "Harry of the West."
The meeting was called to order by the lion.
RICHARD IL STANTON, and its YillOiC tone and
spirit is one of the most cheering tokens we
have yet seen of the fact that the friends of
,the Union, of all former political proclivities,
'are now coming gallantly to the rescue, de
termined to "crush out" forever those Who
would barter away our dearest birthright for
a mess of pottage.
In reporting the proceeding 3 of this meet
ing, the Cincinnati Enquirer says :
Culuuel Stanton came forward and begged
to introduce to the meeting the son of one
who, in his day, had been idolized by his
friends and neighbors—by every Kentuckian
—as the great Champion of our Union ; he
At this announcement there arose a wild
shout of enthusiasm and joyful welcome from
the vast Multitude. The ladies arose from
their seats and waved their handkerchiefs,
the men shouted to the very top of their lungs,
young and old united in one of the most ear
nest and tumultuous exhibitions of real feel
ing we have ever witnessed. Mr. Clay seem
ed to be much affected by these demonstra
tions. In a very clear modest and manly
tone he proceeded to address-them.
lives, We were never, iii our more
than by the speech of this gentleman. We
have been led to believe that he was a person
,of rather cold nature and -ordinary natural
powers. Doubtless the great fa-ne of his fa
ther has stood in the way of the just appre
'eiation of his talents. The, very. name he
bears—his. relationship to the great man of
That State-Lhas prevented him from assuming
a prominent position in public affairs, and
created against him something like jealousy
in the breasts of his father's old friends, and
admirers, who could - not- 3)ear to see any one
of the . name and lineage of Clay attempt to
follow, at how great soever a distance, in the
footsteps oftheir'illustrious chief. These in
fluences have depressed Mr. Clay's reputation
muchbelow the measure it is justly entitled
to, and produced a . diffidence and distrust,
which some of the very people' 'who cherish
the fame of his father with so much jealousy
have mistaken Or misrepresented' as indica
tiVe of. a cold nature and intellect, All this,
we are . satisfied, is .strikingly incorrect and
unjust.. The 'speech delivered by Mr. Clay
on Saturday presented the man in his true
and nattiral character, - and the effect of that
speech was a prOof:or its sincerity.
Mr. Clay .said,that he - was a quiet farmer,
who had taken but little part in public affairs.
He was a comparative stranger in. his own
State. There was not a half dozealamiliar
faces the great crowd before him.. -But
he had been calumniated by the press—he

had been torn by the vile abuse to which he
had been subjected. Ile now appeared be
fore them to show what manner of man he
was, to justify - to his fellow-countrymen the
consistency and honor of his conduct. •;: ' '
• Mr. Clay proceeded to say that he had no
blood in his veins which did not flow in- an
honorable channel and- -from- an honored
source. It Nrii.S mot in .the nature of his race
to be faithless and: treacherous. .There was
none of that race but had borne a true and
patriotic heart in his bosom. An uncle had
fallen, gallantly struggling against -the sava 4 .
0-es at the River Raisin. Many noWipresent
remembered that gallant man who bedewed
the dark and bloody ground with his heart's
blood. A, brother had fallen at Buena Vista,'
fighting for the honor and flag of his country,
and, even when disabled and prostrate from
many Wounds, when last seen he still resist,
ed and combatted the enemies of his country:
Last and greatest of his namegreatest that
had ever been or . ever would be—his father,

=had exhausted his days in the services of
the Republic, and had imposed on all who
were connected with him, as their highest
and most sacred duty, to give their best
efforts to the maintenance of that cause -to
which his great heart and talents were - so
long consecrated.
In the performance of this object, Mr.
Clay, said lie came there to strike one blow
for the Union. He then proceeded to show
that the banner of the Whig party had been
furled and laid upon his father's grave, Its
approaching dissolution was announced in
the canvass and success of Gen. Taylor, who
refused to ' acknowledge himself a
Indeed, its death began when that party7de
clared success,to be its great object, in oppo
salmi to the sentiment of Henry Clay—that
it is: better to be right than to be President.,
He had clung to the old party in its dying,
as he had in its prosperous moments, and
when its final dissolUtion was pro'claimed he
looked around to see - where lie should go.—
Ito felt himself iu the embarrassment in
Which the Sage of Marshfield once found
himself. Ile had entertained .opinions in fa
vor of Native Americauhm, and. had pub
lished the, first article's that had ever appear
ed in KentuCky on that subject. So hearing
that there was a party organized on that idea,
and which at the same time proclaimed very
high-toned and patriotic-national objects and
spirits, though lie entertained' much_repug
'lance to secret societies, he was persuaded to
present himself for interrogation at the por
tals of one of the lodges of the so-called
American order. As the obligation of secre
cy had been removed from all persons in ref
erence to that, order, he felt justified in sta
ting what there occurred. lie was asked
what was his name, where he was born, what
religion he professed, what was the religion:
/ifs ?rift; and, -finally, would. he not bind
himself nab': to vote.fon a Roman Catholic ?
When this question 'was -put to him lie with-'
drew in disgust. That was no place—no par
ty for him. What, then, was he to do? Ile•
looked around again to see if there -was not
a chance for the resurrection of the Whig
party. Not a gleam. of hope enlivened the
gloom of the horizon. Under these circum
stances his next thought and inquiry were,
in what ranks could he, in. his Bumble way,
contribute most to the maintenance of the
Union and of a national. party ? He saw no
other place for him to stand upon, but in the
ranks of the party which alone maintained
an organization in all the States—which alone
was able to present a powerful' resistance to
the sectional party, whose success he believ
ed would involve the disruption of. this Con
federacy.. On this point, lie read Mr. Fill
more's Albany speech, the spirit of which lie
greatly applauded. lie should act in the
spirit of that address, and give his' vote to
the party which presented the best prospects
of success against i Cut and' danger
ous sectional movement. lie could see only
in the Democratic party the pOwer to defeat
this party, and lie should therefore, give his
cordial support to Buchanan and. Breekiu
'Mr. Clay then proceeded to show what he
considered the utter hopelessness of the un
dertaking to elect Mr. Fillmore, and the ef
fect which the persistance of such an effort
must have to weaken the Union party. Ire'
spoke of Mr. Fillmore with great respect, as
his father's and his own friend.' Though ap
pointed by General Taylor, as a Minister of
our Government abroad, he bad been sus
tained by Mr. Fillmore, and received the un
usual compliment of being noticed favorably
in one of the Presidential messages. The
administration of Mr. Fillmore lias been one
of the . most successful, and satisfactory since
the days of - Washington, and 'if he thought
there wassa, chance of his . he would
support him;' bui there not, being a ghost of
a *ince, he would not, Lou pers.:mai prefer
ence, 'hazard 'the success of the only party
which now: has ;,the slightest prospect of suc
cess indefeating ,the - sectional and disunion,
party of the North.
'But he confeSsed, if he deemed it wise and
patriotic to vote for Mr. Fillmore, it would
certainly be a hard' task-to take him'with the
candidate for the Vice Presidency, Andrew
Jackson Donelson, who, besides being a ren
egade from his own party, had quite recent
ly been the reviler and defamer-of Mr. Fill
more, and of that administration Which gave
Mr. Fillmore the high consideration and
claims-that are now accorded. to - him'," The
vote for Andrew Jackson Donelson in prefer
ence to John C. Breckinridgc was certainly
a hand alternative for a Kentuckian. Breek
inridge washis townsman, -the play-mate of
his infancy, the companion of his boyhood,
his friend and intimate at ail periods.' Breck
inridge-had additional claims upon him. L
- he • was elected over General Leslie
Combs, to represent the Ashland District in
Congress, Mr. Breckinridge had asked a
friend of Ms father how Mr. Clay 'would re
ceive him if lie should take the liberty 'of
calling on him. "As a gentleman and a'her
tuckian," was the reply.
Mr. Breckinridge accordingly came, and
he (the speaker) was present at the inter
view. Mr. Breckinridge stated to Mr: Clay
that he had called to pay his respects to him;
that, thoneh of the opposite political party,
he had been chosen to represent the district
- tvhich..he (Mr. Clay) had himself represen
ted with so much renown and fidelity, and
he should consider himself—young and inex
perienced as he was—quite incompetent to
-do justice to the high duty he hadassumed,
,without the counsel and aid of Mr. Clay, and
he desired permission to consult with him
freely, when he should enter upon his duties,
and to receive the aid of his great experience
and knowledge of political Mr. Clay
was much pleased with this interview. It
produced a deep impression on his mind, and
his regard for Mr. Brcekinridge was ever af
terward-warm and earnest. And now lam
expected to throw aside such a man and vote
for Andrew Jackson
.Donelson. ",Why, fel
low-Kentuckians," exclaimed Mr. Clay, "I
would not give John C. Breekinridgo for a
wOodS full of Andrew Jackson Donelsons."
, In this connection Air. Clay referred to the
eloquent, just and noble culogium pronoun
ced by Breckinridge in the House of Repre
sentatives, on the announcement of his fa
ther's death.
Mr. Clay then proceeded to urge upon his
old Whig friends, the companions and. consti
tuents of his father, to rally around that ban
ner which,he had spent his life in upholding
—the banner of the Union. He was ready
to follow the Whig standard as the Douglas
followed the heart of Bruce—as long as it
waved. But that flag was no longer to be
seen on the battle-field. It might yet be un
furled. After death there was the resurrec
tion. But at present there was no Whigor
ganization, and the only party of the Union
was that of which Buchanan and Breckin
'ridge were the candidates.
11,ir. Clay referred to the attempt to impli
cate Mr. Buchanan in the charge of bargain
and corruption. On that subject he propos-.
ed to take the ' testimony of his own father,
and he read from Mr. Clay's letter to show
that Mr. Buchanan had conducted himself
in that affair as a man of truth and honor ;
he should believe what his father said before
others. Besides the evidence lie had read,
there' was other testimony bearing on the
same point. In feeling and eloquent terms
he referred to the heavy weight of that charge
against,hiS father, and how gallantly and
bravely he had borne it. Thank God it died
before his father ; and now, he was proud to
say, that there lived not the man who would
whisper it • But Mr. Buchanan was free
fr4m iall connection with the matter.
111 r: ClaY,coneluded with an eloquent ap
peal to his fellow-citizens, especially 014 line
'Whigs, to give their cordial support to the
Union ticko--to - Buchanan andßreckinridge.
' lle sat down amid the most boisterous ap
plause. We have never heard a more effec
tive speech. Though the third speech ever

ed in the Open air, it \MS very impressive,
both in manner and matter. With some of
the tone's and actions of his father, Mr. Clay
posSesses, a clear, concise diction, much logi
cal force and a manly style. He declared he

oppressed and restrained by the apprehen
sion that too much might be expected from
the son of Henry Clay. his speech, howev
er, carried conviction to every mind of his
honesty, manliness and patriotism.
The White Man and the Negro
American. politics present some strange
contradictions. We are just gradually emer
ging from a bitter contest in which the rights
_ -
and privileges of men of the same lineage
and physical characteristics as the native cit
izens of America, were rudely assailed, be
cause they had not been born here ; and the
next move, on the part of the same men, is
tnraise up to a level of political equality - the
negroes, who are of vastly inferior grade, of
different color and charaeteristics,.and whose
intermixtures with . the whites upon equal
terms, is clearly contrary to the laws of na
ture, and revolting to all the better instincts
of the Caucasian race.
At this day, in the Northern States of this
Republic, there is a large class of men who
seem wholly occupied with considerations af
fecting the welfare of the negroes. They see
our country prosperous and flourishing-be
yond all precedent—they see twenty-five mil
.lions of whites and. some three or fear mil
lions of blacks,—in a happier, more favored,
more advanced condition than the same num
bers of whites and blacks have been in any
country at any period of the history of the
World, for in no other nation of the earth
have so large a body of whites reached so
high a degree of development as the free
white men. of the United States, and
other country have so many black men reach
ed. so high , .it condition of development, as the
black slave population of the South—but they
are not satisfied with leaving well enough
alone. The .existing blessings vouchsafed to
us excite in their breasts no emotions of grat
itude. The benefits of lvhich. we are daily
and hourly recipients, they never contem
plate with a spirit of thanksgiving. They
are regardless of the happiness •of men of
their own color and lineage, and intent upon
the execution of Quixotic designs for the im
aginary benefit of the objects of. their special
Negro-mania has now reached its height.
The_operationS of the negro-worshippers are
conducted with unprecedented vigor, and
theifpurposes - avowed with unblushing bold
ness:, •The Black _Republican organization;
stands forth as the political embodiment of
their sentiments, and its organs have the au
dacity to assert that the American people are
sq. lost-to all - feelings of self-respect, to the
dictates 'of Common sense; of self-preserva
tion, of , wisdom and justice, as to afford them
a.reasonable prospect , 'of securing a triumph.
at the approaching Presidential election.
, ,
We areU.Ware that there are some pers'ons
connected with the Black Republican party
who profess that their only object is to pre
vent the extension of slavery into territories
now free, and that they do this from no love
of the negroes, but merely from regard for
the welfare of the whites. But let men look
before they leap into this new party, at the
real character and designs of those who are
its leaders. Nearly every prominent man of
them is more or less identified with move-
ments designed to eleVate the negroes of the
North to political equality with the whites,
and wherever they have become fully posses
sed of power one of their first steps has been
towards the achievement of this end, and in
several States they have already accomplish
ed it. Nearly, if not every prominent man
of them, was opposed to the Compromise
measures of 1850, and deeply implicated in
movements designed to resist the execution
of- the Fugitive Slave Law. Nearly every
prominent Man of them idolizes SEWARD. as
a great leader of the party, - and
_endorses his
doctrine that for the benefit of the negro a
"higher law" than the Constitution is to be
observed. Nearly every prominent man of
them has participated to a greater or less ex
:tent in underground railroad movements de
signed to expedite the escape of runaway
slaves. Nearly every prominent man among
them-is not only a reviler of the constitution,
but at heart a disunionist, and nearly all
their leaders stand upon the record as enun.=
ciators of sentiments either directly or im
pliedly favorable to disunion, and many of
them are avowed advocates of the immediate
abolition of slavery at all hazards, regard
less of consequences. No matter how much
these men may seek to gloss over the real
character of their designs, their lives afford
abundant proof that by some strange perver
sion of feeling, they are ready and anxious
to sacrifice the welfare and happiness of the
white race for the imaginary benefit of the
blacks, and they are now calling upon the
white people of the North to assist in the ac
complishment of their own destruction. It
is time that men should waken up to a full
comprehension of this negro question, and
contemplate, ere too late, the abyss into which
Black Republican demagogues would plunge
them., It is - time that every honest voter
should insist upon the politicians of this coun
try directing their attention to movements
and objects affecting the welfare of its white
inhabitants, their prosperity, independence,
and happiness, and cease the sickening and
disgusting cant about the negroes. It is time
that the white laboring men- of the North
should revolt against a movement which has
for its ultimate okject the introduction of im
mense bodies : of negroes among them to re
duce their wages and' degrade their condi
tion. It is time that the tax-payers of Penn
sylvania should set their faces sternly against
the project of overflowing our poor houses
and, ails with an improvident, a thriftless
and unscrupulous race. It is time that the
friends of the Union and those who wish to
avert the direful calamities ,which its disso
lution would certainly entail upon us, should
turn upon these negro-loving politicians and
utterly defeat and overthrow them. If the
negro worshippers want to preach negro pol
itics forever, let them go to Africa. A wide
field is open there for their operations; the
negroes there need their teachings and their
assistance much more than the negroes of
the South do, , and if they are anxious to do
the greatest good to . the greatest number of
their sable brethren, that is the country they
should seek. Let us have negro politics for
Africa, and white men's politics for Ameri

The Ten Cent . Fabrication
The NeW York Tribune admits withan un
uSual frankness; -that Mr. 'BuChanan never
made use of any such expression as.has been
falsely imputed to him. The Tribune says:
"The charge that Mr. Buchanan has ad
vocated a reduction of laboring men's wages
to ten cents per day, has but a very partial
support in fact. lie certainly 'never made
any such proposition directly,' nor anything,
which he understoOd to have that effect,"
ImmAic.A.—Ezra Wilson, Esq., offers through

James Buchanan will carry Indiana, and
$2,500 that he will receive a . majority of the
electoral votes of the Union.

There arc three Presidential Candidates be
fore the people, one of whom, in all proba
bility, will be Chief Magistrate of the Union.
JAMBS Bt-cui - NAN - , the Democratic candi
date; MILLARD FILLMORE, the Know Nothing
candidate, -Toms: C. FREMONT, the Black Re
publican and Disunion candidate.
Citizens of the United States, which of the
three will you choose?
JA.ltt's BIICIIANiIN has served his country,
in a national capacity,-for a period of thirty
six years. He is a inn "learned in the law."
He has served in the national House of Rep
resentatives, in the U. S. Senate, in the Cab
inet, and as a minister to foreign courts.
He was the compeer of Webster, Clay, Cal
houn, 'Wright, and other illustrious states
men who have passed from the stage of ac
tion. He possesses a perfect knowledge of
the science and affairs of government., He
is thoroughly acquainted will our domestic
and. foreign relations. His celebrity as au
accomplished statesman is not confined to
his native country, but is acknowledged
- wherever on the face of the earth a civilized
government exists. His patriotism is undis
puted. his moral character is beyond re
proach. He comes up to Mr. Jefferson's
test: He is honest and capable.
This is the character of the 'Democratic
What shall we say of lIILLAno FILLMORE ?
That he is competent we admit; that he pos
sesses many traits of character which we ad
mire, we will not deny; that he speaks as a
true national man, we acknowledge; bat he
fell in an evil hour, from his "high estate,"
when he bound himself by oaths to proscribe
men for conscience and for country's sake;
and this black eluud obscures his glory.
His creed is illiberal, bigoted and anti-demo
erotic. No man with the obligation of such
oaths resting upon him as he has taken, can
administer the government in the spirit of
the constitution.
Of <RAIN C. FREMONT it is only necessary
to say that he possesses no capacity gov
ernment. There is not a county in the State
of Pennsylvania from which his superior
could not be selected. He enteredthe army
of the United States as a second lieutenant
and rose to the rank of Brevet Lt. Colonel.
He explored the Rocky Mountains under the
guidance of Kit Carson. lie was never known
to be "in the right place at the right time,"
and, although he was in California when
there was fighting to be done, he was not en
gaged in a single battle. Ile speculated in
COWS and horses, under the pretence that he
was buying for the government, and presen
ted a bill of over $900,000, only $152,000 of
which was allowed and paid. lle was elec
ted U. S. Senator from California for two
years, of which time he served only twenty
one clays, having ivicale business to attend
to. During those twenty-one days he did
nothing to distinguish himself; and were it
not for the record of his election, and his
name among the yeas and nays in the Sen
ate proceedings, very few would know that
he had ever been a member of that body.
Ile drew rations for his suffering companions
whom he had deserted in the mountains and
used them himself. Finally, he was tried for
mutiny and disobedience of orders, found
guilty on both charges and all the specifica
tions, and dismissed from the army.
Such is the history of jOIIN C. FREMONT.
'We have here presented the three eanidates
in their true light. We believe the people
of the, United States to be honest, intelligent,
patriotic and attached to the Constitution and
Union, and have the utmost confidence that
they will choose from the candidates named the

A Freedom Shrieker " Sold."
Our readers will recollect an. account pub
lished some time since of a stirring appeal
made by lienry Ward Beecher, in his own
church, on Sunday, in behalf of a young
shire girl froth the South, and called upon
his audienaii to raise one thousand two hun
dred dollars to-enable Sarah to purchase her
freedom. So affecting, was the appeal that
ladies who had. no money with them took off
their rings and bracelets and threw them. up,
on the plate. The required sum Was raised,
and the girl was petted and feasted by the
church, until her habits became more than
suspicious, and appearances grew stronger
every day that she had becomb decidedly bad.
Lately the girl was missing, together with
certain goods and chattels belonging to her
friends, and a correspondent of the New
York -News writes that paper that Mr. Beech
er has recently received:lnformation from her

The " Statesman" gives the following deci
ded and candid opinion of the prospect in
Ohio :
" How is Ohio?" is a question asked us
`very confirmedly.' We are compelled to
"say, in all candor, that if things continue to
brighten up and prosper fur the future as
they have for the last twenty drys, Ohio _will
cast her whole electoral vote
_for Buchanan
and_ Breckbaridge by a majority that, will
startle some people. But the elements are
not all settled_ yet, and our organizations are
not completed; but at present all looks bright
and cheering, and .our friends everywhere,
so far as we learn, are in the finest spirits.—
In thirty days more the whole_
- State will be
in a blaze, and froia its light we may seewith
greater certainty. Up, then, and to the work,
until every luunlet is aroused to the cry,
The Union must and shall be preserved 1"

A Black Republican on Fremont wa4.
CuAnr.Es REAto.ND, a negro, and a promi,
wait Black Republican, (says the Detroit
16-ee Press,) thus wrote to one of the dele
gates to the Philadelvhia Convention previ
ous to nominations being made by that body;
"Col. Fremont should be placed at the head
of the ticket. * * * We, at the. West,
desire his nomination. lie will be accepta,
ble to all your constituents."
This same IlumoND spoke as follows of the
"Father of his Country," at- an. abolition
convention in Boston,. on the 30th of May
last :
" Remembering that he• was a slaveholder,
Tie could spit upon that scoundrel, George
Washington. [Hisses and applause.' "The
hisses," said Remond, " are slaveholders, in
spirit, and would enslave me if they could."
"What !" he continued, "so near Fanewil Halt
and Bunker Hill, was he not permitted to shout
that that scoundrel, George Washington, 710
enslaved his fellow-men ?"
There is no doubt that this fellow REmoNn ,
reflects the geniral sentiment of the Black
Republican party. They consider WAsai.xc,
TON a "scoundrel" because he was a slave
holder. Under the, same rule, they consider
JEFFERSON, and MADISON, and Alo.NnoE, and
JAcx.sox, as "scoundrels," for they were all
slaveholders. Every vote- cast for FasuoNT
is an endorsement of this atrocious calumny,
NO. 8.
The Kansas committee, iu their report to
Congress, give the sum total of their demands.
in the following language
"Seventh, that in the present condition of
the Territory, a fair election cannot be held
without a new ceOus, a stringent and well
guarded election, The selection of impartial
judges, and the presence of United States
troops at every place of election."
The bill of Senator Douglas, which has
passed the United States Senate, provides for
every requisite they here point out—a new
census, 'a stringent and well guarded election
laws, and the polls to be protected by the
United States troops—five Commissiouers,
who-it is understood - will be taken from both
political parties—and, it repeals all the ob
noxious laws of which they complain besides,
This is not only lihat the Black Republican
Committee demanded, but " oven more—and
-yet that factious party oppose the bill with
their entire strength. They are- determined
to keep up this sectional agitation until after
the Presidential election, even if it ends in
the dissolution of the Union.

Let these Reverends go on. The title is
allowed the clergy, by way of respect for
their sacred calling as ministers of the gosp

uals desecrate the pulpit with their political
harangues, the instinctive sense of the peo
ple detects the wrong, withdraws its respect,
and thenceforth these individu-als are known
and designated by their political friends, as

be the honored title of Reverend, but as

Fred Douglas, and so down into the nomen

The Boston Journal, a leading Republican or
gan in New England, contains the following
"We are decidedly of opinion that monar
chy, and hereditary monarchy, is by far the
best form of government that human wisdom
has yet devised for the administration of con
siderable nations, and that it will always con
tinue to be the most perfect which human
- virtue will admit of."
JERSEY IN A BLAZE.—The Jersey Blues arc
wide awake. Never probably since the or
ganization of political parties in this coun
try, has there been so determined and active
fooling displayed as nay now be witnessed
by our Democratic friends in New Jersey.--
They are'at work every where. They allow
nothing to interfere with their political du
ties, but plunge into - the very midst of the
political maelstrom, sad hurl defiance at all
foes. This true and noble old State would
give five thousand majority for Buchanan to
day, and by November will double that.
The State where Washington (with Lafay
ette) fought his_ greatest battles, and where
the blood of Americans as well as foreigners
was poured out like water to secure our in
dependence, liberty, and union, is not to be
disgraced by allowing a sectional and dis
union parity like the "Republicans," to raise
their black flag on its sacred soil.
