Upon my return last, evening, after a short absence from the citY,:.l found: your letter of the • : 30th, iiit.,, inviting me to take part in the, proceeding's cif the W higs• of- Maine,' assembled in mass meeting. , • I ,apnreciate' most highly- the honor and kindness of thiS invitation; und . should•lia-,4e had true- pleasure iii accepting it.

To Maj. jORN LINTO, • MIS REASONS FOR SUPPORTING JAMES BUCIISNAN This gentleman, a leading Whig of Massa chusetts, and formerly Speaker. 'of the House of Representatives in Congress, was lately in vited to attend a Kansas Aid Meeting in Fan ueil Hall in Boston, to which he replies in a calm, dignified manner, but takes occasion to administer a just and merited rebuke to such traitors, as are instigating rebellion in Kan sas, thereby visiting upon :the country the evils.of civil war and a dissolution of this glorious Union. His letter is worthy of an old - line Whig statesman, whose affections are centered on the Constitution of his country, and who is willing to sacrifice party attach-, merits Nylon our_free institutions are in peril. In, closing his letter he states his position in the following language: . " This is really but one absorbing question now before the people. In the solemn mag-_ nitude of its presence all others are hushed. This question is at last presented in a tangi ble form,, shall, the Union -be preserved ? or shall the first step be taken toward the entire disrUption of the Statei of the Union by a severance of "the North from the Sonthl--- Looking at the political signs of tho times, with this question _staring, us in the face, we make our choice of candidates.- The nomi nees of the Cincinnati. Convention make the preservation of the Union the matter of par amount interest; Other principles are advo cated; but if any subserviency is to be made; all the others may 'be compromised, all of, them may be subservient ; but "the Union, it must be preserved." On the other - hand, the . preservatien of the Union is a minor and secondary principle 'with those who have -met in convention un-' der the title of Republicans. With them the -preservation of the Union is to be tolerated as a matter of contingency. ; Mr. Banks com mitted the first act of treason in declaring in the halls of Cong Tess that he was in favor 'of "letting the Union slide," •unless - a favorite crochet of his own or his associates could be endorsed.' 'Thisis the broad and grand division of the qUestion that • now divides the country; and in viewof it we hesitate not to declare our 'infinite preference for James Buchanan to _any other man , who sustains the least chance of - election, and to, endorge . him as a man - well _calculated to, :face .the factions in our own land, and the - wiles, and cbrabina, tions, and manifold' diplomacy of the triek ster politicians of the old world." - . The Black Republicans are clamorous for the admiSsion of Kansas as afree State. un der -the Topeka Constitution'. We aver that , under -that Constitution it cannot be admitted -as afree.State, because one of its proviSions prohibits , under severe penalties the - settlement qf any free lzegroes there. • - - Thus we find - tbe Black Republicans, who have - been bellowing against slavery and shrieking for freedom to the black Irian, fix ing severe penal - ties - in' the fundamental law of Kansas•against hie settlenient there.

Every -good citizen, on - the return of a Presidential election, owes the duty to his country, to examine parties and their conse quences: and, having done this, vote as his judgment dictates. There have been seventeen elections- of President. .Let the critical observer ge over them all and look at the administration of them all ; and he will find that all have had a national cast ; that the candidates have been supported, and, after Washington's adminis, tration, by parties without reference to locali ties. On the occasion of the re-election of Jefferson, the 'party opposed to him—and it had its centre in New England=--voted for Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, of- South Car olina ; and he continued to be 'the candidate of the same party in the first election of Madi son. James Monroe was elected by the votes of all the States—with the, solitary exception that one of the electors gave his vote for-John Adams. In-1825n11 the States but two, and those Ohio and Virginia, gaye their votes for John Calhoun for Vice President: -In- the election of 1828 the great States of York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and other Northern States cast nearly as many votes for Jackson, as other Northern States cast for Adams. It is unnecessary to do more than name the re cent elections of Harrison, Polk, Taylor, and Pierce, where a national spirit is seen perva ding them.—The obseiver, in the results, will look in vain for the evidence of section alism, for they all bear the glorious impress of nationality. The same great feature is seen running' through successive administrations. - The whole world can offer no prouder catalogue of characters worthy to be called statesmen ; men trained in civil affairs; and who under• stand the wants of our country, and who patriotically labored for its interests, than the catalogue of those who have been.at the head of our executive department, There is seen, too, this same feature of nationality; the repre, sentativo men of different sections of our country, ever faithful - 0-the rights of all sec.' tions, and yet ever true also to what the whole country required of them, There is Jefferson, of the South, acting with Hamilton of the North; John Marshall; of 'Virginia ; acting with Samuel Dexter of Massachusetts; James Madison and, Albert Gallatin ;- John Q. Adams 'with John C, Calhoun ; Henry Clay with Richard Rush ; Edward. Livingston with Louis McLane ; Daniel Webster with Hugh S. Legare ; and so We might go on, enumerating the great statesmen of the iSTOrth and South who have honored the country, and whose renown is of, the treasures of the country, and who - Side by side have worked together to consolidate its strength and pro. mote its interests. Here, too, we see the marked characteristic of nationality ,---Suck administrations were not composed . of men -representing but a fragment of our: country; they represented. a boundary as wide as the constitution of. the Union, - they represented nothing. less than the - whole - country. * The-true issue. of this Presidential election' is: Shall a party prevail which is ekclusive -IY. confined to the North, and - which seeks-•t halve and divide our country? Or shall the .. Democratic party prevail, which has aferai. ties or 'organization nation-wide,; Which' has basis principles as wide as our- ConStitution extends, which would guard alike the rights of all sections of our country; which would renew in this election, as they /lave been prac, &ally renewed in every Presidential election thus far, the spirit of cennpronnse which originally made the, Union and the., constit?c, This national party is represented. in Bn. chanan and Breckinridge.
