Wc are anxious to sco what proportion of i
tho friends of Douglas in this Stale will
obey th:s infumous demand. Wo aro for
non-intervention in tho States, as well at in
Teirtories. We don't want Congress to
intervene eithor infatvrofoTagainatzhwer
y in the Territories: nor do we want any
intervention on tlio part National Commit
tees with State Organizations. If tho
masses of tho Democratic purty of Pcnn-
ttylvania desire to bo united, and to act to
gether, and to cast their votes in such a
manner as they will be sure to k'l against
the common enemy, wo protest agnir.st
any intermeddling on the part of outsi
ders. Our State Convention at Heading
appointed a Stale Kxecutivo Committe to
whom is committed the management arid
control of our party for the present con
test. Kach wing of tho National Conven
tion appointed a Nationnl Committee.
They have their proper duties to perform.
I5ut wo protest against any intermeddling
on the tiart of State Orsanisationa. If
tho manifesto of Miles Taylor t Co., iu
obeyed net a single member of Congress
will be elected bv tho Democrats. Hut if
it U disregtrded and spurned as it des
erves to le, wo will not only carry a large
majority of Congressmen, elect Gen. Fos
ter and a Democratic Legislature, but will
whip old Abe all to smash.
Wo soo by the western papers that the
Black Eepublicans are arranging their po
litical programmo with an eye to carrying
out the "Irrepressible conflict" to the very
letter, this they mut do to fatisfy the
Abolitionists, spiritual Kippers and tho
negroes. In the fifth congressional dis
trict of Indiana, they have set aside Mr.
Kilgore and nominated that notorious
abolitionist Geo. W. Julian, in the eighth,
tenth, and eleventh districts they havo
ot aside rather conservative men, and
nominated two Blacks. In Michigan and
Vermont the samo thing is being done.
In Illinois however thero is quito a rum
pus in tho camp, tho State convention
nominated a Mr. Hoffman for Lieut. Gov.,
and he refuses to run, seeing that tho
subject was getting loo dark, and the state
central committee named a Mr. Jurrot for
the position. To this a largo portion of
tho rank and file object, his views not
being dark enough ; and ho has been
forced to leave the field, stating that ho
could not consider himself a candidate
while so largo and a respectable portion
of the stato objected to hiin' nnd the
state Central Committee, have called an
other stale Convention to assemble at
Springfield on the 5th ofAugust next.
Wo know another citizen of Illinois
who ouiiht to of taken a like view of mat
ters with Mr. Jarrot j when ho knew as
well as Mr. Jarrot did, that a "large and
respectable portion of this country" did
not dosiro him to becomo the nomineo of
his party for Fresident at this time.
Life of Aba Lincjla by Judge Douglas.
We abstract tho follo-ving brief recital
of tho career of Mr. Lincoln from ono of
the speeches made by Stephen A. Doug
las during the canvass in Illinois in ISoS :
"I have known Mr. Lincoln for nearly
twenty-live years. We hud many points
of sympathy when I first got acquainted
with him. Wo were both comparatively
boys; both struggling with poverty for
our support 1 an humblo school-teacher
in iho tow-n of Winchester, and he a flour
ishing grocery keeper in tho town of Sa
lem, lie was more successful in occupa
tion than I, and lieuco became more fortu
nate in this worlds ; goods. I made as
jtood a nchool teacher as I could, and
when a cabinetmaker made tho bedsteads
and tables, but my old boss said I succee
ded better in bureaus and secretaries than
in anvthing else. Hut I believe that Mr.
Lincoln was moio successful in business
than 1. lor his business as a grocery
keeper soon carried him into the Lciiisturo.
There I met hiiu in a little time, and I had
sympathy (or him because of the up-hill
stiUL'ulo we liad in life. He was then n
good n' tilling an anecdote as now. If a
could beat any of the boy s wrestling, could
outrun '.hem at a foot-raee, beat any of
tliein at pitching quoits and tossing a cop
per, and could win more liquor than all
tho lioys put together, and tho dignity
and impartiality with which ho presided
'at a horse race or a first fight wero the
' praise of everybody that was present or
I participated. Jit-ace I had sympathy for
' him, because he win struggling with mis
; fortune, m.d so was I. Mr. Lincoln sci'V
led with mo. or I with hitn in tho Legist
lature of lfji( when wo pat ted. He sub
aided nr submerged for snmo years, and 1
lost n ght of him. In 18 Hi, when Wilmot
I raised the Wilmot proviso torna lo,Mr. Lin
coin appo.ired again n. a member of Con
pre-s f rom Sangamon Dis't. I, being in the
Senata of the United States, wii called to
nelcume him, then without friend and
companion, llo then riitlinguishcd hinis
self by his opposition to the Mexican war
taking part h ith tho common enemy in
time of war, against his own country.--When
ho returned homo from that Cun-
grers he found that the indignation of the
pt'opie lollnwcU him every wlier.. until he
iv:ui-u lo iivtiiu nie, nnn nas suo
1 merged until ho was again forgotten by
ins ii lenua. ,iiu came up again in ISj , m
time to make the abolition black republi
can platform, in company with Lovejoy,
biddings, Cliase and Frod. Douglass, for
the republican pnrty to stnna upon."

But the Hepublican party claims the pow-

on its Flag this creat doctrine of the

swer one question before he loaves tho plat

platform, an the subject of slavery, hotter
than Iho Whig platform, when thai party
made its last effort, and Mr. Wilson left
the party because ho could not stand cn
that platform T If ho will answer that
question, I think we shall all be edified.
