We shall publish it next week with pleasure. 10-The Huntingdon Journal says we are - welcome to all such Old Line Whigs as JOHN Asmst_tx, Esci. They are just the kind we want. Ile lived in the days when party men were honest—he is so still. A report has been put in circulation, in Jackson and. Barree townships, by a wool ly-head, that John 'Whittaker, son of Capt. John Whittaker of this place, was murdered. in his bed in Kansas, by the "Border Ruffi ans." There is no truth in the report._ The "nigger worshippers" must be hard run for aid to save their sinking ship. The following is an extract from a let ter to Mr. John Thompson, dated Ogden, Kansas Territory, July 12, 1856: " I perceive by reading the eastern papers, that there are false reports about the excite ment in Kansas, and more said about it than there is here. There has been considerable confusion at Lawrence and Hickory Point, but not so bad as is repotted. This is a good country!' Little Mifflin all Right The Lewistown True Democrat says : Almost every day we bear of old Line Whigs, in various parts of this county, who have come out for " Buck" and " Breck, " and denounced the sectionalists who fight under the flag of sixteen stars. In November next, Little Mifflin will send to her sister counties, greeting, 250 majority for Buchan an and Breckinridge.—We are satisfied this will be so. Fremont and Niggerism can never flourish upon the pure soil of Little Mifflin, and therefore cur opponents may as well prepare themselves for a complete drub bing 1 Get your hides ready, boys, for you'll catch it—that's certain. ANOTITER Voicn FOR FREMONT.—At a re cent meeting of the colored voters of the city of Brooklyn, N. Y., one of the resolutions adopted commenced thus : .Resolved, That in the three prominent political platforms now before the country, we recognize that adopted by the Republi can . party, nearest to the truth and right " We publish the above in order. that our Black Republican friends of this county may see that their colored "breddering and sis tering" of New York are all right for Fre mont? For the information of all whom it may concern, we state that the proceedings of the Democratic Delegate Convention were published as full as they were handed to us by the Secretary. If any motion was made instructing the Chair to appoint a Standing Committee, and omitted, the fault was not ours.

To this end, all sorts of means have been resorted to—misrepresentation, and bribery and corrtption—being the chief.— Accustomed to place implicit confidence in their editors, many of the German voters fol lowed in the track of those who had been bribed, but since their wickedness and shame have been exposed, the Germans are every where holding meetings and denouncing the traitors, and resolving that if "German edi tors can be bought, German voters cannot," and are consequently retracing their steps.— Among the misrepresentations used, was this, that the Black Republicans were antagonis tical to the Know Nothings. - Gov. Ford, however, in his late great attempt at speech Making in this borough, settled. that matter very conclusively, by asserting that Gov. Williamson and. himself were genuine Know Nothing delegates to the Philadelphia Con vention, but because that Convention admit ted Catholics, they withdrew, and with oth ers, held a separate Convention, where none but the most proscriptive of the Order could get seats—proscriptive of foreigners, mind you, as well as of native Catholics.' It is al so well remembered that Gov. (John) Will i9.mson declared at the Fillmore ratification meeting in the Spring, that "he had not left the Know Nothing party," and demanded the evidence that he had done so. These things have not been unattended with good results. Several voters in our borough - who had inclined toward the Fremont party, have taken their stand again with the good old de mocracy, saying—"it has defended us, we will continue to defend and support it"— Gov. (Tom) Ford's speech has made it a fixed fact, that the votes of the adopted citizens of this district will go for Buchanan and. De mocracy, and nobody and nothing else. Men of common sense will not surely - vote for their own proscription. The Disumlonists. If anything further were necessary to con vince us of the traitorous purposes of the Black Republican leaders, beyond their nom ination of J. C. Fremont upon a sectional platform, we have the conclusive evidence furnished us by their recent action in Con gress adjourning without granting themeans of keeping afoot our army for the defence of the nation and the preservation of the pub lic peace. They hoped for the disbandon inept of the government forces, that in the midst of confusion and civil war, the coun try might be rent in twain, and their darling scheme of severing the North from the South be carried into effect. Their sectional can didate, says the Washington Uizipt, was a true type of their heart, and when they struck that revolutionary blow upon the constitu tion, by their proviso to the army appropria tion bill, it was but giving another practical illustration of their treasonable purposes.— We have said what is well should be repeat eel, and sounded again and again through the length and breadth of the land, that their ob ject was to compel the President to disband the army, so that anarchy might come, and the road be unobstructed to that revolution and conquest which alone could gratify their wicked ambition. But they have miscalculated their power to hoodwink and deceive the people. Their deliberate purpose to destroy the American Union is now being well understood, and the feeling of true, affection for our common na tionality, that exists every where alike, throughout this country,- North, South, East and West, will evoke such an indignant spir it as will sweep them from place and power, and condemn them to a despised obscurity. Nothing more, we conceive, is needful than that their designs be fully developed. No discussion on the value of the Union is requir ed. Let the fact the known that Black Re publicanism aims to destroy the integrity of the country, and the people will speedily take front it the power of harm. . Organize! Organize! Our Democratic friends in every election district in the county, should organize imme diately, that a full vote of all who are oppos ed to Abolitionism, Know Nothingism and the dissolution of the Union, and. in favor of Buchanan, Breckinridge and the Union, and good. and competent men. for our State and county officers, may be brought to the polls on the 2d. Tuesday of October. If clubs axe not formed in each district, meetings should be held frequently, and if no public speakers can be procured for the occasions, letters and speeches by the most prominent old Whigs End. Democrats, should be publicly read. Our friends should see that every voter is supplied with Democratic papers and docu ments, and it would be well for those who aro subscribers to the "Globe," after having read it, to hand it to their neighbors. Give the voters correct information—let the truth be disseminated—let the present contest be pre sented in its true aspect before the people, and the result cannot be a matter of doubt— Huntingdon county will roll up a handsome majority for Buchanan and Democracy. ko..We would again urge our readers to call on GEO. H. AtIXER, and obtain one of his superior Ambrotypes, for they are decidedly the best Likenesses ever taken in Hunting don. Rooms in the Court House. The ad vantage of the Ambrotype over the ordinary Daguerreotype, is that you can see them in any light, and they never fade. COB.RESPODIDENCE. TEE GLOBE. W.T.LLIA3ISBURG, Aug. 25, 1856. MR. EDlTOR.—Permit me through the col umns of the Globe, to inform the Democrats in our mother county, that we, in little Blair, are aroused. to the importance of the issue in volved in the coming Presidential contest.— The "dark lantern" and "cuffy" parties car ried. our county by a majority of about 600 last fall, but if they succeed in getting half that majority at the coming election, you can take our hat. A Buchanan Club was organized in Wil liamsburg, on Saturday evening last, Aug. 23, which was ominous, from the fact, that it is the first Democratic Club. ever raised in our. town. The meeting was large and en thusiastic, and during the evening, quite a number of old line Whigs and Know Noth ings came forward manfully and enrolled their names as members of the Club. Mr. HENRY L. AKE being loudly called for, responded in an eloquent address. He dish ed up the coming contest in a happy manner —handled Mr. Fremont, the Mariposa finan cier, rather sharply—portraying the crafty speculator with _ his arms in Uncle Sam's breeches pockets up to the elbows, turning out the "yellow boys" by thousands, and transferring them to his individual uses—and that, notwithstanding he is the hero of Cali fornia, we will find him at the election in No vember next, spurring with desperation yet more terrible than was the "ride of the one hundred"—and coming out, as usual, "in time to be too late" for the Presidency. He gave us to understand that Mr. Fillmore would probably be a mere plank upon which to ride the "woolly horse" into the 'White House. The contrast drawn between the three candidates was lucid and telling, and. calculated to convince rational Fremont men, that they had the wool pulled over their eyes. CONSTITUTION. Ford and Black The Black Republicans have had Gov. Ford, of Ohio, stumping Bedford and Fulton comities. The Governor made a speech in Bedford, which was replied to by S. W. Black, who completely demolished the Governor and his dark doctrines. The meeting that Col. Black addressed in Bedford on Saturday week, was the largest and most imposing meeting ever held in that town. The Colo nel's speech was a most happy and able one. A clear, powerful and convincing one, t lie scarcely left a grease spot of the Black Re publican Governor, who is supported in his endeavors to destroy the fraternal harmony of the people, out of the Kansas fund. - The Governor has signally failed in Bedford and Fulton to leave the least mark of success. So says the Johnstown Echo. G.els COSIPANY.—The Com pany was organized on Monday, add'the fol lowing named gentlemen elected Directors: J. P. Anderson, John Scott, Wm. Dorris, jr., J. Simpson Africa and Wm. P. Orbison. Those who have not yet subscribed to the stock should do so immediately. BROAD Top CoAL.—The coal now coming from the mines looks much better, and is of a better quality, than that taken out when the mines were first opened. It is fast taking the place of other bituminous coal for all pur poses. FREMONT AND SLAVERY.—The New York Herald, the leading Fremont organ, both be fore and since his nomination, openly advo cates that Kansas shall be made a slave state. It says— " Admit Kansas, then, as a slave state, and. hereafter let the new free states and slave states come in pairs—a fair offset to each other. This will dry up the bitter waters which aro now bursting forth in the west, and the streams of passion and excite ment which they feed." Verily, it seems that all parties can sup port Fremont, without sacrificing. any opin ion upon any question. Eloquent and Patriotic Letter. The following. extract is from a letter ad dressed by J. McD. Smine, Esq., of Cham bcrsburg, (formerly an old-line Whig,} in re ply to an invitation to address the Democrat-. ic Mass Meeting at Chambersburg. It breathes a spirit of patriotism which in these days of disunion sentiments is cheering to the heart of every lover of his country: Every shout that will go up from your meeting for Buchanan and Breekbaridge, will find and wake a sympathetic and vibrating cord in my heart. Every cheer for the Con stitution-and the Union, will wake an echo in my inmost bosom. The Constitution— that magna charta of human rights—that ti tle deed of political equality, fresh from the hands of God—that glorious shield and pro tector of our_ homes and our firesides—our lives, liberties and property. The Union— that has made us a great, mighty and won derfully prosperous people. The Union—that has bridged this Continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The Union—that has made the sturdy sons of Maine and the gallant children of Louisiana brothers—one and in separable in heart, feeling, blood, kindred and interest. That Constitution, and that Union—cherish both of them. They embody a sentiment worth living for—a sentiment worth dying for—and while you remember them now, in their hour of peril and danger —love and clasp the banner of the Democrat ic Party—the only party now in the country that loves and clasps the Constitution and the Union. Hoping you may have a good meeting, and a season of enjoyment, and feel stronger nerved in the good cause after this political communion, I subscribe myself in haste, Your obt. servt. J. McD. SHARP.

A short time ago we published an article from the London Times, one of the leading organs of the English government, - which showed the interest our Trans-atlantic ene mies feel and the part they are performing in our Presidential contest. It will be re membered that the article from the Times, contained the following bold and significant avowal. "A Buchanan Presidency will be a trying one to English interests, and must be anticipa ted, if possible." Since the appearance of the Times article another English journal, the London Chroni cle, which occupies a high place in the confi dence of the British Government, has come out openly in opposition, to Mr. BucRAN - NN. It says "We should be sorry to see Mr. Buchanan elected, because he is in favor of preserving the obnoxious institutions as they exist, AND THE UNITY OF THE STATES. There is no safety for European monarchial govern ments, if the progressive spirit of the .Deinoe racy of the Umted States is allowed to succeed. ELECT FREMONT, AND THE FIRST BLOW TO THE SEPARATION OF THE UNITED STATES IS EFFECTED I " There, reader, you have the secret of Eng lish opposition to the Democracy and their candidate for the Presidency. Mr. Bum - AN - - AN would preserve our INSTITUTIONS AS VIET" EXIST, AND THE UNITY OF TEE STATES!. Who would have expected so candid an admission? It is just the reverse of their previous diplo macy. Heretofore they have secretly aided and abetted our opponents by money and counsel. We are rejoiced at their change of tact. In previous political contests the op position have denied the charge that they were allied with the British, and so wily were their coadjutors, that it was difficult to establish their connection. Now, however, thore is 1:to room for denial. Their allies speak out openly and unequivocally. They say, "There is no safety for European mon, archial governments, if the progressive spirit of the Democracy of the United States is allowed to succeed."—What say you to that, American citizens? Do you wish to perpetu ate the monarchies of the old world? If so, crush out the progressive spirit of Democracy. Cast your votes in accordance with the dic tates of monarchists. Become the instru ments of those who would sap the founda tions of your free institutions that the totter ing thrones of Europe may be , saved. If you are tired of enjoying the blessings of lib erty, oppose "the progressive spirit of Democ racy." If you wish to surrender the noble heritage which was purchased by the toil, the blood, the lives of your fatherg, consult "English interests," and aid. them in pre venting a BUCHANAN Presidency. If you de sire a dissolution of our glorious Union— which is the envy, while it commands the respect of the world—if you are anxious to engage in a civil war and imbrue your hands in the blood of your brethren, then do as the British allies of Black Republicanism request —elect JOHN C. FREMONT, and you will be gratified, )3ow to do it---Greeley's Instructions. The New York Tribune contains a list of instructions • for the country districts, num bered from one to eleven. The following is a copy of number three: 3. To have frequent meetings for inter change of opinion, and let speakers be instruc ted upon the topics most suitable for the locality. In. some places, the foreign vote to be undeceived; in others, the distinction poin ted out between Fillmore and Americanism; in others, the Bucaneers to be attended to, in and the particular shape which treason toward Freedom may assume well shaken out. Mark each sentence of this infamous order, • says the Pennsylvanian. "Let speakers be instructed upon the topics most suitable for the locality."--L.This - means that in a settlement composed mainly of adopted citizens, the speaker is to go into spasms of delight over "the rich Irish brogue and the sweet• German accent;" but if it should abound in the oppo-. site material, he is to let out his slang-whang lag energies upon the "low Dutch," and the ignorent Trish." Again, some places the foreign vote is to be undeceived; in. others, the distinctionpointedoutbetween Fillmoresim and Americanism." This is of a piece with the previous sentence. Foreign born voters- are to be humbugged with the falsehoods that that Fremont has no connection with their persecutors, while the "Americans" are to be made mire by the exhibition of some secret pledge or sign such as that which satisfied the Honorable Timothy Davis that the Black Republican leader is as good a Know Nothing as Fillmore,. It is by such shameless means as those unguardedly developed in direction No. 3, that Greely and his unscrupulous associates hope to swindle into the chair at Washington, the poor novice they have so deeply debauch ed. Upon the face of these instructions it is clear that some one is to be cheated, but what matters that to the spotless and truth ful philosopher of the Tribune. A lic it more or less, "a pious fraud'_' or a whole party swindled is nothing in such a day's work as it is his practice to ut in. why should he hesitate at either if it stands in the way of the "nigger 1" There is no commandment in in his code to stop him. Democrats—men of decency and intelli gence of all parties,read these shameless and inftimous directions and lash with a whip of scorpions the lying swindlers that are sent to execute them. ORGANIZED-A Buchanan Club in town.— It will meet at the Town Hall on Saturday evening at 8 o'clock. Let all attend. PASTE THIS IN TOUR ELAT.L-The following table, says the Journal of Commerce, has been prepared to show the apportionment of Representatives in Congress- from 1811 to 1852, among the Free and Slave States, should be pasted. in the hat of every Democrat, so that when a "freedom shriekery talks about the "growing and overpowering influence of the slave power," as all of them do every time they talk, he can take off his hat and politely show the disciple of Giddings, Gree , ley & Co., that he is slightly mistaken: FREE STef.TES. 1811. -1822 New Ilampshirc, 6 6 Massachusetts, 20 13 Vermont, 6 6 Rhode Island, 2 2 Connecticut, 7 6 New York, 27 .34 New Jersey,. 6 6 Pennsylvania, " 23 26 Ohio, 6 14 Maine, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, lowa, California, Total, 93 123 141 135 143 SLAVE STATES. 1811. 1822. 1832. 1842. 1852 Delawaro„ 1 1 1 1 1 Maryland, 9 9 8 6 5 Virginia, 23 22 21 15 13 North Carolina, 13 15 13 a 3 South Carolina, 9 9 9 7 6 Georgia. 6 7 9 8 8 _Kentucky, 10 -12 13 10 10 Tennessee, 0 9 13 11 10 Alabama, 2 5 7 7 Mississippi, 1 2 4 5 Louisiana, 3 3 4 4 Missouri, / 2 5 7 Arkansas,2 Texas, 2 Florida, 1 Total, 78 79 99 87 90 Difference in favor of Free— States, What a comment upon the howlings of the Abolition-Republicans about the increase of the "slave power 1" Why, at the rate of pro gression, the Representatives from the non slaveholding States will soon be to those from the slaveholding States, as two to one.

Exciting News From Kansas ST, Louis, Aug. 21.—The Leavenworth City, Kansas, JoUrnal of the 17th contains lengthy accounts of another outbreak in Kan sas, On the 17th, Brown, at the head of 300 Free State men attacked and drove into Mis souri a Colony of Georgians near Ossawato mie Colony, who were unarmed ; their houses wore burned and all their property destroy ed. On the 12th Franklin was attacked by 200 Men from Lawrence, who, after dislodg ing 14 pro-slavery men by setting fire to the house they were in, robbed the Post Office of $7O; took 30 United States muskets and one piece of artillery from Mr. Buckley, They took $425, a gold watch and $450 worth of clothing from Mr, Barnes ; a large lot of clothing from Mr. Crane ; between $9OO and $l2OO in accounts and notes, and $125 in clothing from Inda Fane, and a valuable horse. On the 15th, the Freadwell party were on foot, it is feared. that most of them have fal len. Freadwell sent to Gov. Shannon for aid, who called on the U. S. troops, but they re fused to act. The anti-Slavery men are dri ving all the pro-Slavery men out of Douglass county, and destroying their property. A fight took place' on the 14th near Ossa watomie, between 200 Abolitionists and 12 pro-Slavery men, the latter being in a fort, which resulted. in killing 14 Abolitionists and wotinding six others. On the morning of the 16th, Lecompton was attacked and taken by 800 of Lane's men ; the United States troops, having Rob inson, Brown, Williams and other prisoners in charge, surrendered without firing a gun, during the absence of Col. Titus, who went for assistance to Treadwell. His house, about b mile from Lecompton, was burned, and Mr. Clowes, editor of the Southern Advocate, and Mr. Systene were killed, and Andrew Bros ton wounded, Largo bodies of men are organizing, in the border counties of Independence, and String fellow is at Weston. Circulars signed by Atcheson, Russell, Anderson, and Boone are being freely circulated in the river towns, asking for aid to drive the anti-slavery men out and to burn Lawrence on the 20th, for which place a large force had. left Leaven worth. Lanes force is variously reported at from 300 to 800. Bloody work is looked for. eweAoo, Aug. 23.—The St. Louis Demo crat gives the following version of the re cent occurrences in Kansas. The attack on the pro-slavery camp at Ossawatomie, was occasioned by the plundering of a number of provision wagons belonging to citizens settled between Kansas city and Ossawato mie. The pro-slavery force was entirely driv en out of Franklin. A force of 200 men from Lawrence marched to the pro-slavery camp on Washington creek, and ordered the men there to disperse. They retreated and occupied and fortified a block house at Le compton. heavy firing was heard in that „direction the same day. ST. Louis, Aug. 23.—A private despatch from Boonville states that the late news from Kansas has created a most intense excite ment. Five thousand dollars were raised for the purpose of sending men immediately to the relief of the pro-slavery citizens of the territory. A high state of feeling exists among the citizens of the counties'in Missou ri bordering on the river. Public meetings are daily held .411 d. large numbers of men are volunteering - to go for the purpose of aiding the Governor . of Kansas. Among these vol unteers are men of discretion and property, who express a determination to remain in the field until peace and good order are re stored in the territory. Circulars and ap peals, signed by prominent and. influential citizens, are freely circulated asking for aid to drive Col. Lane and his party out. MODEL RErnnx.—The Messrs. Brooks, of the New York Express, a Fillmore and Don elson paper, lately sent a Prospectus to Mr. Hollister, Sheriff of Susquehanna county, :with a request that he would get up a club, or hand over the Prospectus to some active Fillmore and Donelson man for that purpose. The Sheriff subsequently made the following formal return: To THE HON. J. & E. BROOKS, _EDITORS Ex- PRESS.--I certify that by virtue of the within writ, to me directed, I have made diligent in quiry and search, but have been unable to find a Fillmore man or a Donelson man in my bailiwick.

It is in the highest degree creditable to the President as a State paper, and presents in a forcible light the situation of the country, and the factious nature of the proceedings of the majority in the House:— Fellow Citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives: n consequence of the failure of Congress, at its recent session,, to make provision for the support of the Army, it became imperatively incumbent on me to exercise the power which the Constitution confers on the Executive for extraordinary occasions, and promptly to convene the two Houses, in: order to afford them an opportunity of reconsidering a sub ject of such vital interest to the peace and welfare of the nation. With the exception of a partial authority, vested by law in the Secretary of War, to contract for the supply of clothing and Subsistence, the army is whol ly dependent on the appropriations annually made by Congress. Tile omission of Con gress to act in this respect before the termi nation of' the fiscal year, had already caused embarrassments to the service which were overcome only in the expectation of appro priations before the close of the present month. If the requisite funds be not speedily provi ded, the Executive will no longer be able to furnish the transportation, equipments, and munitions which are essential to the effective ness of a military force in the field. With no provision for the pay of troops, the con tracts of enlistment would be broken, and the army must, in effect, be disbanded, the con sequences of which would be so disastrous as to demand all possible efforts to avert the ca lamity. It is not merely that tho officers and enlist ed men of the array are - to be thus deprived of the pay and emoluments to which they are entitled by the standing laws, but the con, struction of arms at the public armories, the repair and construction of ordnance at the arsenals, and the manufacture of military clothing and camp equipage must be discon tinued, and the persons connected with this branch of the public service, thus be depri ved, suddenly, of the employment essential to their subsistence. Nor is it merely the waste consequent on the forced abandonment of the seaboard fortifications and of the infe rior military posts and other establishments, and the enormous expense of recruiting and re-organizing the army, and again distribu ting it over the vast regions which it now oc cupies. These are evils which may, it is true, be repaired hereafter by taxes imposed on the country. But other evils are involved, which no expenditures, however lavish, could reme dy, and in comparison with which local and personal injuries or interests, sink into insig nificance. A great part of the army is situated on a remote frontier, or in the deserts and moun tains of the interior. To discharge large bodies of men in such places, without the means of regaining their homes, and where few, if any, could obtain subsistence by hon est industry, would be to subject them to suf fering and. temptation, with a disregard of justice and right most derogatory to govern, ment. In the Territories of Washington and Ore gon, numerous bands of Indians are in arms, and are wa,ging awar of extermination against the white inhabitants, and although our troops arc actively carrying on the campaign, we have no intelligence of a successful result.— On the Western plains notwithstanding the imposing display of military force recently made there, and the chastisement inflicted on the rebellious tribes, others, far from being dismayed, have manifested hostile intentions and been guilty of outrages which if not de signed to prove c conflict, serve to show that the apprehension of it is insufficient wholly to restrain their vicious propensities. A strong force in the State of Texas has produ ced a temporary suspension of hostilities there, but in New Mexico incessant activity on the part of the troops is required to keep in check the marauding tribes which infest that Terri, tory. The hostile Indians have not been re moved from the State of Florida, and the withdrawal of the troops therefrom, leaving that object unaccomplished, would be most injurious to the inhabitants, and a breach of the positive engagements of the general Gov ernment. To refuse supplies to the army, therefore, is to compel the complete cessation of all its operations, and its practical disband ment, and thus to invite the hordes of preda tory savages from the Western plains and the Rocky Mountains, to spread devastation along a frontier of more than four thousand mile in extent, and to deliver up the sparse popu -1 lation of a vast tract of country to rapine and murder. Such, in substance, would be the direct and immediate effects of the refusal of Congress for the first time in the history of the Govern ment, to grant supplies for the maintenance of the army ; the inevitable waste of millions of public treasure ; the infliction of extreme wrong upon all persons connected with the military establishment, by service, employ ment or contracts ' • the recall of our forces from the field ; the fearful sacrifice of life and incalculable destruction of property' on the remote frontiers ; the striking of our national flag • on the battlements of the fortresses which defend our maritime cities against foreign in vasion ; the violation of the public honor and good and. the discredit of the United , States in the eyes of the civilized world. I confidently trust that these considerations and others appertaining to the domestic peace of the country, which cannot fail to suggest themselves to every patriOtic mind, will, on reflection, be duly appreciated by both Hou ses of Congress, and induce the enactment of the requisite provisions of law for the sup port of the army of the United States. FRANKLIN NERCE. WASHINGTON, August, 21, 1850. WHERE ARE TILE OLD Wrna SENATORS ? The above question is thus answered by the Albany Argus ; " Clayton, the premier of the Whigs in the Senate, has declared his hostility to both Fre, mont and Fillmore. Ev.erett and Choate stand apart from the Whigs of Massachusetts. Senators Pearce - and Pratt, of Maryland, have given in their adhesion to Buchanan.— Senator Benjamin, of Louisiana, is on the stump in the same cause. Senator Geyer, .0 Missouri, is to follow. Kentucky has sided with the Democracy. Tennessee will follow. Yet Maryland, Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennes see, and sometimes Missouri, were once Whig States !" The Argus adds : "It is said that not a single survivor of the cabinet of President Harrison votes for Fre mont. The son. of Harrison, the son of Clay, the son of Webster, are all to be found in the ranks of the Democracy, sustaining its can didates and upholding the glorious Union. of our States."
